Movement is literally in our make-up. Walking on two legs, known as bipedalism, makes us efficient movers with each forward motion mimicking a pendulum swing that propels us on. It requires very little muscular activity, unlike knuckle walking or quadrupedalism. As a bipedal species we are free to move more openly than animals with 4 legs. Our arms are free to use tools, stretch to grab fruit, and are on hand to communicate our feelings better. Yet, many of us ringfence movement and exercise – it’s a special activity at a special time of day, or even an activity we never seem to make time for. Let’s change how we interact with exercise and explore that movement is in our bones. Celebrate our form with daily classes, look below!
