BODY AWARENESS

Whenever we exercise or feel as though we’re about to get sick we’re told to “listen to our bodies.” In other words, we’re usually told to pay close attention to our physical state in a negative or cautionary context.

And as our doctors rightfully warn us not to ignore our bodies when something is wrong, in tango, it’s just as important not to ignore our bodies whenever we’re doing things right.

When we do a step correctly, what exactly is our body doing? How does it feel when specific muscle groups manage the micro-movements that keep us on balance while we walk, do ochos, sacadas, etc?

If it’s critical to connect with our partners, then it’s probably every bit as important to be fully in tune with our own bodies, too.
