Locked Knees Prevent Freedom of Movement

March 7, 2011

Do you stand with your knees locked? Did you know that your body’s response to locked knees is to inhibit movement in the rest of the body? If it was only a matter of releasing those muscles when you’re going to move it wouldn’t be such a problem; but the habit of tension created from that locked up position will resonate into all movement including running and walking.

Nothing is more powerful than first-hand experience so please take a few minutes to discover for your self what I’m talking about; follow along with Susinn as she demonstrates the Feldenkrais movement exploration on this week’s video clip.

If you discover that locked knees are a problem for you, you may want to revisit last week’s blog posting and practice the Feldenkrais Pelvic Circle lesson for a few minutes every day. Remeber to keep your knees soft as you move your pelvis.
