Episode 26 - Conversations with Judith Aston
Oct 12th, 2020 by touchingintopresence
Today's Conversation is with Judith Aston.
Judith is widely recognized as a pioneer in the art and science of kinetics for her discovery of the Aston® Paradigm. Her distinct biomechanical model for the human body is based on a unique way of seeing the body in relationship to the earth. Her discoveries about the importance of using the forces of gravity and ground reaction in alternating sequences has transformed many systems of exercise, bodywork, and movement education. Her acute ability to “see” the body in stillness and in motion, and to train others to see, established her discipline of bodywork and movement training.
In today’s conversation we talk about her inspirations, Judith's lifetime dedication to creativity and problem solving, some stories of her Esalen Somatic "Gang," Judith's way of seeing, a short movement experiential, functional holding patterns, working with children, Aston World Movement, her new book and how one could study with her.
