Releasing Ourselves from Our Identity as Human: Moving Beyond Head-centricism

In hatha (physical) yoga sometimes it is useful to let go of the idea of being human. To move without your head dominating, to understand yourself as a unified organism, is to feel yourself as a wave, a snake, a tree, a constellation of forces. The nature of our society and biology have made us head-centric. One can discern the level of head-centrism when people move in yoga. The head juts out dictating the movement, and is strained, disconnected and over consumes the body’s energetic currency. Once we let go of the head and our identity as human, we simultaneously return to our animal origins and transcend to our nature as infinite consciousness and begin to move freely.
