western movement culture

Western movement consist mainly of sport and as such can generally be characterised as performative, linear, competitive, high-impact, repetitive and injurious. The fitness industry is generally dedicated to producing a particular image of wellness through the overdevelopment of imbalanced musculature.

Our culture lacks the equivalent of tai chi or yoga that cultivate awareness, sensitivity, functional strength, movement complexity as well as contemplative internal mental states.

Glad bagging, repackaging and marketing of traditionally integrated systems into fragmented bundles of fitness industry product taught by youthful and injury-free fitness instructors with little depth of understanding, is unlikely to offer or support the sorts of deep change experienced through traditional life long practises that require sustained dedication and inspiration.
