Archetype Movements

February 10, 2012 Leave a comment

So I just finished a fabulous, fabulous course called Archtype Movements with Dr. Svetlana Masgutova.  I was so mesmermized for all three days.  The basic premise of this course is that there are archetypal (or foundational) movements in the body that form the foundation of the 30+ reflexes addressed by the Masgutova Method.  Therefore one archetypal pattern can inform 4 or more actual reflexes. 

How is this important?  If you can understand the foundation of the reflexes, you can then be more adept at actually using the exercises that address each separate one.  You will know what the body wants to do automatically, so instead of fighting that pattern you work with that pattern to integrate the reflex.

Maybe you’re wondering why look at reflexes? I’ll answer that in another post.
