What is integration?
Integration is the ability of all parts of the body to work together efficiently to produce movement towards any one task, leaving no one part of the body isolated or vulnerable.
Learning to move in this way leaves no one part isolated or vulnerable to injury, and so produces efficient movement that can last into old age, as it does not rely on muscular strength, but only integration of the parts to work together efficiently.
As we learn to move more efficiently we learn to use minimal muscular activity, rather than relying on the strength of the muscles alone to perform a task.
The aging process is inevitable, that is a fact, but if we move correctly, the efficiency and power of our movement can last well into old age.
The aging process is inevitable, so we need to make sure that the exercise or movements we carry out now, even in our younger years, will lead to efficient movement as we age.
