Turning Into the New Year

What does turning mean anyway? We discussed this recently in a Mindful Movement with Parkinson’s class. We mostly agreed that turning involved all (or at least most) of ourselves. Our eyes and head; shoulders, ribs and pelvis; even the weight on our feet.  Perhaps “turning“ describes our self in relation to the outside environment, a change in orientation or direction. Which aligns with the more official definition of turning. But as we played with more differentiated movements, twisting came to mind — one or several parts moving in relation to other parts and with some center line or axis around which we move. We can all think of examples – looking over a shoulder without any weight shift on feet
