Let Your Body Do The Talking: and Lets Have Fun! 

As part of the Power of Awareness In Our Everyday Lives: Responding Vs Reacting Retreat by Brenda Morgan, PhD, March 12, 2010:

Have you ever wondered how do different walking patterns come to be?  We can all recognize certain ways in which people walk.  Maybe you can identify your friend or a certain family member from a distance by their posture, or walking pattern.  Today we will explore such issues as: Are our walking patterns modeled after influential people in our lives, our parents? Are they a result of injury, or habit? How much is from genetics, vs energetics? And, can they be changed or influenced in any way? Can conscious changes in our walking, also known as “gait” pattern be used to promote or attract wanted energy in our lives?  To begin this exploration we will first be stepping “into the body” and exploring the feelings that can be generated from different postures, progressing to feeling the energy in different walking patterns that we use in different environments.  The second step will be practicing postures and patterns which increase awareness of the body and employ simple changes in movement to help us respond more effectively in our daily lives.
