Warning: This video may be gruesome to some viewers. It features a cadaver. If you think that it will upset you, then don’t watch it.
Why am I featuring it here? It shows why you need to move your body to your full range of movement to maintain your freedom of movement as you grow older, and why you may need yoga and/or bodywork to restore freedom of movement after periods of inactivity.
Freedom of movement is something that I intuitively believe is related to having healthy energetic meridians. If you can move freely, then the energy in your body is flowing well.
I’m sure there’s a lot more to it than that, but you can feel it, can’t you?
