Systema For Life Podcast - Episode 35: On Balance

"Natural movement is the emergent property of getting out of your own way...if you just keep yourself open, relaxed, and balanced as a default state, then your body will answer those questions naturally..."

Glenn Murphy joins resident health and wellness guru Howard Jacobson as they explore concepts, notions, and principles of balance. Here, we cover:

    why people are pendulums (pendula?)
    bags and weights vs animate training partners
    physical, physiological, and psychological balance
    the necessity of finding, monitoring and restoring your balance, in all things.

Balance will be one of the themes explored in this month's Lessons From HQ workshop at NC SYSTEMA, on Saturday June 9th. Locals, sign up at:
