What is harder? ๐Ÿค”


Learning something new? Or unlearning something you already know (or thought we knew)?


I am life long learner. I am always studying something. Itโ€™s a quality I proudly own. ๐Ÿ˜Š


I am either learning something new, like training a new modality (The current new gig is Slow Resistance Training), a new skill (building an online course), or deepening my existing study (Anatomy, injury management, communications).


I get excited about both.


But today, I think about unlearning.


The recent term on dropbacks is focusing on Hips.


What?


Not only that. The recent term on dropbacks is focusing on Posterior tilt in hips.


What?


If you ask me 10 years ago, I didnโ€™t think that hips are part of the equation when I think of backbends.


If you ask me 5 years ago, I wouldnโ€™t think I can bend without lower back sensation.


Recent work on posterior tilt in hips in backbends.


Wow. Just wow.


Confused? Donโ€™t worry. Me too. ๐Ÿ™‚


But confusion is good news. Thatโ€™s what makes it interesting.

โœจ Sometimes what we thought/believed was wrong. And itโ€™s ok to be wrong. We have all done that. Nothing to be shameful about.


โœจ Sometimes what we thought wasnโ€™t wrong, but there are better ways. In that case, we just update and upgrade our information and knowledge.

Unlearning and relearning are a big part of the refinement process and itโ€™s crucial for growth.


In the current Alignment Series, I focused on pinpointing misalignments and potential problems in common postures. Itโ€™s a huge unlearning and relearning process.


Transforming is not about learning something new. Itโ€™s about ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ. ๐Ÿ’ฏ


Come with curiosity. Itโ€™s exciting when you can make your Downdog better.


And as for me, after thousands of wheels and dropbacks, itโ€™s so exciting that I can still learn something new (and so much more). ๐Ÿค—
