In honor of my upcoming trip to France I’d like to share with you an article about your bones.
What do your bones have to do with France?
Believe it or not your bones have a lot in common with the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
“The Eiffel tower is incredibly well optimized to do what it was designed to do, to stand tall and stand strong, while using a minimum of material. Rather than hide its inner workings with a facade, Eiffel exposed the skeleton of his masterpiece. In doing so, he revealed its “hidden rules of harmony”, many of the same rules that give your skeleton its lightweight strength”
Your skeleton (like the Eiffel tower) is designed to stand strong, it’s optimized to do what it is designed to do.
Did you know that your bones are hard on the outside but soft and spongy on the inside?

In a few weeks as I look up at the Eiffel Tower I’ll stand taller and have a greater understanding of its structure and mine.
Moshe Feldenkrais was, among other things a mechanical engineer. He took his knowledge and founded The Method where you learn to optimize your movement and gain the efficiency that your structure was designed to do. Once discovered perhaps you’ll even glow!
