YOU ARE THE HERO OF YOUR STORY

“The Hero Path We have not even to risk the adventure alone for the heroes of all time have gone before us. The labyrinth is thoroughly known … we have only to follow the thread of the hero path. And where we had thought to find an abomination we shall find a God. And where we had thought to slay another we shall slay ourselves. Where we had thought to travel outwards we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone we shall be with all the world.” Joseph Campbell         1. CALL TO ADVENTURE The Call to Adventure is about getting you, the hero, started on the right track. After learning where the hero has previously come from and what is needed most, we will help you forge a new path. Over the course of at least four sessions within a month, you will leave with a new understanding of what’s required of your body and mind.   2. MEETING WITH MENTOR Meeting with the Mentor is for those who want a little more consistent guidance along their journey. A deeper relationship is formed over the course of regular weekly visits for at least a season. The hero is still largely walking their path on their own but, there is frequent course corrections to ensure the hero is still headed towards their ultimate vision with guidance from UpRight Movement.

Flexibility + Strength = Mobility

Flexibility + Strength = Mobility

If you tighten the string too much it will snap and if you leave it too slack, it won’t play.   With great flexibility comes great responsibility, (i.e. Flexibility + Strength = Mobility.) Or You wouldn’t drive your car without brakes. MOBILITY — Increasing Joints Ability to Move Joint Structure – Bone – Ligament – Capsule Physiological – Muscle – Tendon Neurological – Fascia – Tone — Multi-Variant — Multi-Planar — Functionally Driven = What it Produces, Not What it Looks like. STABILITY (Reflexive Strength) Control in the presence of change Functional Stability — Motor Control — Timing of Tonic and Phasic Muscles Contracting Smaller “Local” muscles (stabilizers) and bigger “Global” muscles (the big movers) Stabilizing and Mobilizing Passive Stability — Joint Capsules, Ligaments — Joint “Centration” (the stabilization and stacking of the joints along a central axis) Dependent on Motor Control The body is an interdependent kinetic system, and relies on a balance of flexibility and stability. As with many other aspects of movement (Bio-Motor Skills) too little or too much can cause an imbalance. Congenital laxity can be a major problem from a medical perspective. Movement – based and athletic implications aside, hypermobility may not always be benign. The Beighton Scale, Hypermobility Screen is as below with an interval scoring system. 1. Extend the little finger over the back of the hand — if 90 degrees or greater Score: 1 Point Left 1 Point Right 2. Flex the thumb toward the forearm — if the thumb touches the forearm Score: 1 Point Left 1 Point Right 3. Extend the arm — if 10 degrees or more of...
