What does it mean when people refer to the notion that you are Divine? Or to tap into the Divinity of all that you are?
In essence it is the knowing and the remembering that your Soul is eternal, limitless, infinite
It came into this human vessel with all the answers. When we get 'stuck' on the minutia and smaller picture we are failing to acknowledge and remember that we came here with everything that we will ever need
Reclaiming your Divinity is reclaiming your power
Embodiment:thoughts,feelings and behaviors are grounded in bodily interaction with the environment.
Cognition: the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience and the senses.
🔴You cant get well in the same environment you became ill within.. external and internal.
🔴how you learn in the world is beholden to how much you move in it.
🧠cliff note version:your brain ignites the learning the more you move the more you move the more you feel. The more you feel the more you move. Sounds like school... Clinical tip: when i move your organs its brain brain candy. Vagus nerve booster. When you breathe from the diaphragm you move your organs. Vagus nerve booster.. when i move your organs then you breathe.
🔴vagus nerve is 70-90% afferent to the brain. Sensory.. thatswhy i play with your organs a lot.. 🔴move more of yourself. More often... more ways.. more environments and you will feel better about yourself.
Work the other way too.when you are thinking too much you get in your own way. Just STOP thinking and start moving.. you will probably get your answer.. stop overthinking shit. #cognition#exercise#movement#kinesiology#brain#science#philosphy#inner -engineering #master#flow

👊🏻MEJORA TU PRESS BANCA 👊🏻 Este ejercicio es ideal para mejorar tus marcas y levantar mas peso, ya que lo podemos usar con una Banda Específica o con una Banca Elástica de un metro que comúnmente encontramos en los gimnasios.🎗 Lo bueno de este ejercicio es que la Banda elástica nos servirá como impulso, es decir, hará la función de una liga que nos ayuda a empujar en el primer tramo del recorrido, gracias a ello podremos trabajar con cargas iguales o mayores al 1RM.🥇 Pero recuerda que tienes que hacer la mayor fuerza posible desde el comienzo, ya que en la parte media y final del recorrido la Banda elástica ya no estará haciendo el efecto y serás tú el que deba terminar el levantamiento!🏋🏻♂️
Esta frase pertenece a un viejo profesor nuestro.
Nos parece que condensa toda la esencia de nuestra profesión y de cualquier otra que esté en contacto directo con las personas en momentos difíciles de sus vidas.
Compartirla con vosotros es nuestra manera de dedicarle un pequeño homenaje.
The role of scapula is to provide anatomic and kinematic link between trunk and arm.
The scapula attaches to the clavicle through the acromioclavicular joint. The tension of the muscles that attach to it dictate the position of the scapula in space. Those muscles cross the scapula, attach to the spine or rib cage and all together pull to create dynamic stability during motions of the upper limb.
Our body is a tensegrity structure. Scapula cannot be excluded for this. The muscle group is the elastic/tensional structures and the scapula/bone provides compression, creating a TENSEGRITY balance of forces.
The muscles depicted, with arrows designating line of pull:
1. Latissimus Dorsi with attachment to the scapula via fascial slips to the inferior angle of the scapula.
2. Serratus Anterior
3. Rhomboid Major/Minor
4. Lower Trapezius
5. Middle Trapezius
6. Levator Scapulae
8. Upper Trap fibers attach to the distal acromion and clavicle
All of these tissues must maintain tensional balance for a stable position of the scapula and the Glenohumeral (GH) joint. If one pulls more than the others, the tensegrity is compromised, and pathology ensues in the Cervical spine, Thoracic spine and upper extremity.
Lumboishialgija je oboljenje koje nastaje ostecenjem kicmenih korjenova usljed prolapsa lumbalnih intervertebralnih diskusa. Najcesce nastaje pri nepravilnom podizanju tereta, prilikom cega dolazi do pucanja fibroznog prstena (anulus fibrosus), i prolapsa unutrašnjeg mekog dijela diska (nucleus pulposus), prilikom cega dolazi do kompresije odredjenog kicmenog nerva. Najcesce predilekciono mjesto nastanka jeste izmedju L5 i S1. #lumboishialgija#spine#physiotherapy#physicaltherapy#kinesiology#kinesiotherapy

Follow up: BREATHING 🌬 awereness 💨
Hop to our Youtube channel to get a full guided preview of the 4 exercises we introduce for BREATHING re-patterning
🔻Re-learning the breathing patterns is extremely important to start with. Why are we learning how to breathe? Don‘t we know this already ? The answer is NO, not properly
🔻Most of our daily breathing patterns lack awereness, attention and diaphragmatic movement
🔻Without moving diaphragm, every system in the body lacks control & oxygen
🔻Incorporating these patterns into your routine is easy and time-saving
🔻Your systems will work better (primarily lymph and respiratory, following with nervous, muscle and vestibular system improvement)
🔻You will feel more energized since bringing awereness to life energy - breathing - is widely neglected
🔻For a detailed voice-through, check out our youtube channel & the BLOG from @irmapilav and share your thoughts with us!

Full Moon and fire.
Sitting out under the April full moon, warmed by the crackling fire, the scent of nature in the growing gentle Spring.
Moments like this bring me home to myself. All the stresses and concerns fall away, melt away in the flames and a sweet peace fills me.
Nothing is needed. All becomes simple. Resting in nature.
Our retreats offer space where we can drop the burdens and struggle of daily life and rest in the simple sweetness of nature..
The warm Sun, the falling rain, the smell of cut grass, flowers and night air, bare feet on the Earth, nourishing foods for all the senses.
We have availability for August, September, october, December. 2019

GENERAL STUDY TIPS 📚
Happy Friday friends! I can’t believe I start my 3rd semester of PT school THIS MONDAY 🤭! I figured I’d post a few study tips for you guys + as a reminder for myself as I get back in the groove of things after this *much needed* week off 👇🏾:
• Take breaks: You can’t study nonstop forever. Breaks will leave you refreshed, and ready to focus. You can set a timer for how long you want to study, then reward yourself with a break! I like to use the Forest app to do this.
• Highlight, highlight, highlight: With cute highlighters…’nuff said.
• Youtube: Youtube and other sites with videos (like Khan academy) are great if you are a visual/auditory learner. It also makes studying more fun!
• Put your phone away!
• Find a good environment: If you know you can’t study in your room, then don’t try to study in your room…you’re just setting yourself up for failure! Find a good coffee shop or head to the library, whatever works best for you.
• Study what you don’t know (and do this 1st): Now this may seem obvious, but it is so easy to study what you actually know, and feel like you are prepared for an exam/quiz (when you really aren’t). If you study what you don’t know 1st, then you have more time to understand it, ask questions, etc.
• Read your notes immediately after class.
• Avoid cramming: If you know that you have an exam coming up in 2 weeks, split up the info. and study a lecture or 2 until the exam. Give yourself a few days before to review all of the info./concepts that you’re struggling to grasp.
• Make sure you are comfortable: Feel good work good, right?
• Find a good study buddy: Studying with friends/classmates can be great. You can quiz each other, talk things out, and hold each other accountable. Sometimes it is good to hear someone else’s thought process.
• Create a study schedule: And write it down (more accountability)! That way, you don’t waste any time because you already have a game plan.

HUMANITY IN HEALTHCARE 🥼
It has been one wild week. In the midst of finals, my granddad (one of the most important men in my life) was admitted to the hospital. My family and I have been traveling 2+ hours round-trip every day since Wednesday to be with him. It’s safe to say that I have been having a really hard time with it all. This was my first time being on the “other side”. My first time not having the answers. I had to wait for rounds to see how a surgery went. I couldn’t just look in the chart to see what notes were left. I couldn’t just page a provider to ask a question. I had to have patience...understanding...faith. Waiting is hard. Not knowing what comes next is hard. At one point, he had a 5/10 chance of survival. I had to mentally prepare myself for that loss...that very scary, but real possibility.
I am so grateful that my granddad is doing better, and on the road to recovery. I am grateful that I got to spend this past week with my family, despite the circumstances. I am grateful for all the love my friends have shown me. I am grateful for the surgical team, the nurses, the respiratory therapist, the hospitality staff, and everyone else at that hospital that treated (+ is still treating) my family so well: for letting us pray Saturday night before prepping my granddad for his 3rd surgery, for always keeping us updated, for letting more than 2 people in the room at a time, for laughing at my jokes, and so much more. This experience has reminded me how important it is to keep the humanity in healthcare. To remember that every patient is someone’s grandfather, or mother, or brother. That every patient deserves to be treated like a human, no matter their age, race, religion, or socioeconomic status. That every patient matters ❤️
Over the past 5yrs of my degree I attempted to take a picture a day... here is the result! All the big/little, good and bad moments that lead to me having a degree in Kinesiology! Swipe to see my first and last picture! A lot has changed, but I wouldn’t change a thing! Thankful for all the people I met along the way and all the adventures I’ve had over the last 5yrs near and far!

📚 Are you spending hours studying? Having trouble concentrating on and memorizing information? Try this proven and efficient study method! ⬆️⬆️ • ⏰ The POMODORO method is a great way to break up your studying into bite-sized pieces that are easier for your brain to learn and retain! •
Let’s start to look at the SI joint. It moves, but only a little, a few degrees in every direction. Even though the movement is small, the impact is big. When we move our legs or our spine, this joint is like a fulcrum that transmits the large forces between lower and upper body. This movement allows the joint to act more like a spring or sling or cushion to redirect force, rather than just absorbing it all and taking the hit alone. .
Let’s start with the basics and work our way into more complex movements later. If your leg swings forward, the pelvis tilts posterior (we also call this a flexed pelvis or flexed ilium). When the leg swings behind us into extension, the pelvis tilts anterior which we can also call an extended pelvis or extended ilium. Basically where the leg goes, the pelvis follows. That’s a natural rhythm. See if you can notice this when you walk up stairs or do a lunge, the butt will feel like it is tucking under you for the forward leg and the opposite for the backward leg.

Just wrapped up my final lecture of the semester! First time teaching a full undergraduate course! #anatomy and #physiology
Thanks for giving me a hand (skeleton) thin man! Couldn’t have done this without you and your boney pals!
I loved teaching, but I am very excited to have more time and energy to put into research. #neurophysiology#phdthesis
