We have been drawn to these Arts because we seek, what is it we seek ? Is it to continuously become better, more vibrant and healthy in both mind and body. I feel we have come to study, grow and develop ourselves because we wish to be whole, complete, and centered, we love the Arts and the ability to express ourselves within them, we want to learn.
Alot of us have gotten lost in the esoteric realm through these Arts and have lost the key to the door presented to us through the Art....The hocus pocus of meditation and qi gong, the "woooooh" factor of martial arts, the strong physiques of those of us who lift weights and cross train, the peace and clarity of those who are mindful, The great flexibility of those who practice yoga and pilates, the agility speed and mobility of dancers, gymnasts etc....What is the difference between each of these practices ? Why choose one over the other ? Are we lost in a specialized nature of choosing this over that? Why ?
We have to remember constantly why we came to these Arts, as being overly conceptual tends to creep in on all of us at times. " Why am I doing this ? "....So many ways to Meditate, so many ways to do Qi Gong, which martial art, what type of yoga, which sacred dance, cross fit, or movement culture modality should we study, and why? So many questions.....Are you feeling me ? Why not study the root to all of them........ you , your body and mind....Be a scientist, and let your mind and body become the laboratory !
Mind Body Movement Arts wishes to unwravel overly esoteric jargon and concepts that confuse people with their airy language. We wish to demistify these arts and bring what is practical, functional and that which can manifest real change in all of it;s participants... We honor the traditions, cultures, mythologies, and esoteric stories and teachings of various Art forms, however we make the teachings useable so that they can be understood by all of our participants and students from any and all backgrounds they have come from...
We have gotten lost the same way, what is strength, what is flexibility, what is coordination, balance, mindfulness, posture, agility, and health... Alot to think about........Isn't it ? Do all of these Arts teach us to become these things clearly ? Isn't that the purpose of all of these Arts, the purpose of why we study so hard, or desire to start studying? I mean, Why be strong physically but weak mentally ? Why be flexible but not agile ? Why meditate and have a calm mind but at the same time have a weak body? Why be able to dance and be coordinated, but not have full range of mobility?
We at M.B.M.A are changing the face of what these words mean, by presenting traditional teachings, blended with our understanding and study of various Art forms in a clear and easy way to learn... If you are a student of mind body union, a strong person ready to kick it up a nothch, and are ready to cut through the esoteric hooplah of what is mindful movement, you have come to the right place !
