Movement Practice: Connect Shoulders to Walking

Elbows to Knees

Click image for short lesson.

Many of us think we walk with our feet and legs. Maybe the hip joints too. But when we walk this way, our balance is often compromised. And our walk may not feel -- or look -- smooth and comfortable. The shoulder blades and ribs are crucial players in walking well. Try this short movement exploration from Dr. Ruthy Alon's Walk for Life® . It's done sitting in a chair with your elbows on your knees to help you connect your shoulders to your feet. It's less than 6 minutes long and is a sample of the kind of movement lessons we'll be exploring in January. Click here.
