“How we move, think, and feel have an impact on the stress response through real neural connections." ... "Something about axial control has an impact on stress responses. There’s all this evidence that core strengthening has an impact on stress. And when you see somebody that's depressed or stressed out, you notice changes in their posture. When you stand up straight, it has an effect on how you project yourself and how you feel. Well, lo and behold, core muscles have an impact on stress. And I suspect that if you activate core muscles inappropriately with poor posture, that’s going to have an impact on stress."

It's interesting how many of the ideas that have been around for ages, and which came about more through (sometimes hundreds or thousands of years of) observation, are discounted because there's no hard, physical evidence that it's true... until somebody finds the hard physical evidence.

“Pain is not a thing. We talk about pain as if it were a thing, but it is not. Pain is the name we give to the various ways that we experience injury, loss, and exclusion, but there is no one thing called pain which we can point to and say ‘there it is’. Think about the pain of stubbing your toe and the pain of a paper cut, the pain of embarrassment and the pain of a broken heart. Are these the same thing? Some pains are sharp, some dull, some shooting, others ache. When we name our pains in these ways we participate in a social exercise, becoming and making ourselves into persons-in-pain. We are active in the construction of this way of experiencing the world, being-in-pain.” - James Sommerville

Here is a great example of Julian calmly dealing with a hard wooden stick being pressed against the shin bones. This type of pain is sharp (even electric!). By focusing on breathing and staying relaxed, he is able to cope and not let it overtake him. In the class (last week) we did this type of work all over the body. Of course the pain is different throughout the body.
