"Water, Water Everywhere..."
"Nor any drop to drink."
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Water makes up 2/3 of our body weight, covers 71% of the earth, lubricates our joints, regulates our body temperatures, flushes toxins from our systems and carries nutrients throughout our bodies. The human body simply can not live without water.
In its purest form, water is the perfect hydration for the human body. However, it goes through a lot of change traveling from a mountain stream into our homes. Through environmental pollution and chemical treatments, the water we drink is a far cry from the water that is found in nature.
Test results from the E.F. Braun laboratory in Uttingen, Switzerland show how the very structure of a water molecule changes to become tap water. In the Before picture, you can see the damage to the water molecule. However, in the After picture you can see the documented structural change after the water was given time to rest in a carafe by Nature's Designs.
The change in the molecular structure allows for a better tasting water that the body can recognize as something from nature and can fully absorb. This allows the body to fully hydrate!
What does all this talk of water have to do with Gyrotonic?
From the moment we wake up, we are compressing our spines. Every moment of the day, water is squeezed out of the discs in our spines. Gyrotonic exercises work to open and elongate the spine, the movements lubricate every joint, stretch every muscle and strengthen every nerve ending and fiber in the body. In order to stay open and in alignment, the spine needs water! Without water, the discs dehydrate and become compressed which leads to limited mobility and pain.
The Gyrotonic Method and water go together perfectly! That's why Nagare's motto is find your flow. Find the flow in your body - every minute of every day. Find the fluidity in your movement. Like the flow of water...
With water being so important to our bodies, our work and our lives, Nagare is thrilled to have discovered Nature's Design products. A line of glassware and pottery that has been created in accordance with nature to heal the damaged water molecule so our bodies can fully hydrate. Take a look at the products online, or better yet, come into the studio for a taste test! Much like Gyrotonic itself, it's better to experience the difference in person to fully appreciate the benefits.
We look forward to sharing in the journey with you to ...
