"Core Body-Mind Integration Concepts in Context Chart" [Oct'11]
Summary of Connecting Points & Implications in body-mind preventative maintenance
"Body Mind Integration" intro Q & A and core topic essays
Tensing Yoga will work for almost ANY muscle or muscle group. It's mainly designed for customized application to/for the muscle(s) that are challenging you. That might get more clear if you try out the "Exercise for Illustrating Tension Range". In fact, I'd say that exercise is a pretty mandatory preliminary for understanding this system, just to make sure you are "grounding the concept" - connecting mind with body. But first things first...
Where does it come from? Since the answer to that is more "all about me" than about the functional application, I put that into the section after next, Origins of Tensing Yoga. And I appreciate the patience of those that consider this essential information prior to their utilizing the system. And...
In Summary: This yoga is about developing and maintaining a healthy muscle energy efficiency via optimally wide Tension Range (between max work and max rest), therefore optimal Work/Rest Ratio, and thus overall hi efficiency of movement. This greatly improves capacity to manage sudden changes without injury for otherwise chronically tense areas, as well as to better conduct healing of any acute injuries. TY could be considered an optimized form of self-applied, neuro-muscular re-education, reinforced with a body-mind connectivity that insures a more comprehensive and long-term response (High Preventative Maintenance Gains). Whereas Tensing Yoga is not about getting into positions, TY may be used to get into positions quicker, easier, and without injury.
It's more about "How" than about "What." Which is mainly why this page is bigger than one essay. In practical application, the technique is very easy compared to systems of yoga that require memorization of positions and movements. However, in that practical application, to perform it so as to get results, requires certain understandings and patient employment of various attitudes that will determine how the "mechanics" are applied. And that is only as difficult as attitude adjustments can sometimes be. If you're not feeling "attitudinally tested" in your yoga class - a little more than occasionally - maybe you should talk to your instructor about goals and directions for your long-term yoga experience. If you've been to yoga class only for the fellowship, the athletic experience, or the competition, then perhaps you were led to this page for a reason.
Nor is TY about spiritual applications - although you certainly *can* go there with TY. After all, is it not *How* -- or with what frame of mind & heart one does something -- that determines the more profound results of what is done?
And, there *are* sections here about approach - Focus, Attitude, and Rapport - much of which are about the same basics taught by spiritual yoga masters; ie: breathing and focus. TY makes it easy to take optimal advantage of our capacities for neuroplasticity, especially when we include these other parts of the approach, so we can directly, naturally, and positively engage that capacity for re-organization of the brain and other neural networks (including proprioceptors in muscles) as a result of that experience, as we interface with our cells and self-healing mechanisms for preventative maintenance or self-healing.
Let's consider working with both the acute symptoms and the chronic situation or cause. This system is designed to maintain the muscles in a more relaxed and flexible state when in the acute stages of injury, and to maintain the muscles in a more capable and flexible state in general for long-term preventative maintenance. [ The acute stage is right after injury, when there is abnormal pain with normal use. Ideally at this time the injured limb is kept from being "weight-bearing", and if muscle contraction to any degree is called for, it is done so very carefully in the presence of an experienced practitioner, physical therapist, osteopath, or chiropractor. ]
This exercise can be employed with the use of the usual yoga positions, or "asanas," or it can transform most any other exercise movement or position into a yoga movement or position. Depending on which muscle groups one is working with, a different postural position is more suitable.
You might try Tensing Yoga for at least a few months, depending on how long you may have been dealing with your symptoms. After that, you may feel that you no longer need to do the exercises. However, I strongly suggest you continue - at a gradually reduced frequency. After that, a few minutes of application before you get out of bed can make all the difference for that day. Eventually, you will benefit with the capacity to FEEL, long in advance, when to take increased preventative measures. If it takes you even a year to get to the point of being able to feel this, you'll have the rest of your life to enjoy the benefits. But you will likely notice benefits long before that. And this is what I call true health insurance, and it is certainly cost-effective.
Bodyworkers can teach this system most readily with their base of knowledge, both general and specific to the client at hand. Put in a context that bodyworkers may relate to easily: With this approach we are more likely to empower the client in moving much further "off the battlefield" -- of constant internal armoring reaction to the past, as well as to any current reminders thereof -- as opposed to simply treating the same wounds on a regular basis yet assist the client back into that same battlefield.

Origins Of Tensing Yoga
and as relative to Traditional Yoga
Yoga as an umbrella - for perspectives, training backgrounds, skill sets, etc - seems pretty productive! And I admit to complaining last year (2011) that too many yoga instructors in my area apparently do not teach the importance of focus & breathing, but seem to emphasize getting into & holding positions - what I call "athletic yoga". And so I've come to remember the adage that, "you start where you are" applies, and that we shouldn't limit the expansion in application. And I admit, I know about 3 asanas(!) Essentially because they are related to low back pain, & look most like the exercises that therapists teach for back pain. I know, I'm the neophyte on campus.
The experiences of my mother and siblings would seem to indicate we have a congenital (genetically inherited) form of degenerative bone disease. My case, however, would indicate that is actually, or at least likely, not true. That is, that case might be better explained (for all of us) by a certain excessive amount of stubborness of momentum. As would be illustrated by a high school kid, as a running back in football, carrying the ball downfield and locked out of any side-escape options, would duck his head and barrell into a guy twice his size coming from the opposite direction. Or by a (baseball) catcher, who as trying out for the local Marine Air Station all-star team (positions mainly taken up by officers, with the upcoming big game in Hawaii), guards home plate with a freshly landed ball for the tag, as a 235 pound lieutenant comes barrelling in full speed at this E-3 BLOCKING the base with his 160 pound pride-commandeered body... The fact that I don't have TBI (traumatic brain injury) along with the lumbar-localized compacted spine is something I can be thankful for. But I digress...
The case might be better explained BECAUSE...
In 1987 An injury to my L4 to S1 areas (the base of the lumbar curve) got my attention, to say the least; X-rays showed disk extrusion into the spinal area. From here I pulled together the best of what I knew and learned over about 10 years (it took 3 years to walk up/down stairs without thinking about it). This initiated with an injury in Spring 1986, albeit a re-injury of a condition that began after weight-lifting in junior high school1, but more recently and severely re-injured in Spring of '87. The '86 downtime was a few weeks; the '87 downtime far longer. Including the need to use stairs with great care - after a few stair-related reinjury episodes, being used to running up stairs just because I could -- and so forth. Athlete's turned to Eastern philosophy and meditation STILL want to feel like Athletes.
Along with receiving chiropractic and massage treatments, I started self-work with VERY slow application of 'low-back' exercises (per the old chiropractic/PT charts, etc) along with various, but mainly deep and slow, breathing approaches. Over the next few years (still enduring periodic re-injury episodes with downtimes of two weeks or so), I added Vipassana meditation. And from there somehow fell into a state of visual and verbal dialog, which I now call "Body-Parenting". Before long, that brought about some rather surprising, somewhat transcendental experiences. I'm pretty sure the body-parenting part was created out of my training/study in *Re-Parenting*, based on Humanistic Psychology approach, Transactional Analysis, and related therapeutic dialog, as I had been trained in a gestalt realm of bodywork, as well as in body-centered psychology.
After a time I realized that essentially passive positioning (especially when I was hurting, but otherwise) mixed with very subtle, very slow, tensing and relaxing of muscles (here's where it varied and got interesting) seemed to make all the difference, achieved adjustments of vertebra, and relief of pain. In the earlier years when re-stimulated the injury, it resulted in 1-3 weeks of relative inactivity, not to mention the pain.
Breathing, rythym, and creek rock: I actually first learned about this (a few years after out of the USMC) when shoveling creek rock at a construction site. We're talking eight to ten hours a day for a week and with a mind that is generally happiest with something to consciously focus on). By the 3rd day I had developed a rhythm, and a method of breathing with the movements, as well as altering my stance so as to vary the load distribution for my muscles. That also allowed or facilitated continuous and accurate shovelings of rock up to 20 feet away- and practically non-stop (eg: for hours at a stretch with ocassional 10-20 second body checks, stretches, water drinks, etc). As I noticed the power of this, I would test it for longevity, so to speak..
And this was probably my first introduction to understanding the power of focused breathing and the science of yoga. Granted, I had previously practiced some Rosicrucian breathing principles when walking to/from classes at OU, but the short distance didn't really provide a test. I used to be amazed, however, at how few breaths I take on average -while actively doing massage therapy- compared to many of my clients - as they are receiving that same massage therapy.).
In the last five years [before 2011], the re-stim is rare, is relatively minor, lasts 1 week at most, and mainly only have had "warning signals," and usually with many months in between.
A few days of anti-inflammatories settles the muscles (that is, the mild over-the-counter sort [Aleve], but mostly herbal, such as willow bark, DC Labs' formula 303, taken with water, lemon juice, apple cidar vingar, and Vitamin C [also an anti-inflammatory]. The re-injury is the only time I use the Aleve, by the way.) From here I can utilize the re-injury for further re-organizing the connective tissue system and mind-body tension habits, so I continue to improve my back's long-term health and strength. Which attitude sets a powerful momentum, and relates to neuroplasticity (that capacity for re-organization of the brain and other neural networks, including proprioceptors in muscles; more on that and on natural anti-inflammatories below right).
Nov 2014 REPORT: Since early 2011, when I began every morning -- with discipline - a 5-20+ minute routine - BEFORE getting out of bed -- there have been no episodes that exceeding the "warning level", and to which I respond accordingly. (More on that in "The Exercise" section further below). And there may be something in all that about "stubborness" and pride, even for someone who wants to be an Athlete. Is repairing a shoulder injury and returning to fifty-pushup capacity at (61 yo) about illustrating "aging well" or about something else? Ah well...). [PS: Got there in 2014 (at 62), but then I wasn't actually hurrying.]
At some point in 1994, I began calling this "Tensing Yoga" and wrote "...first get the mind to muscle awareness going then sit with the muscle/ tissue and run consciousness along its length, through its depth, scanning/ exploring with the kinesthetic senses (not so much the mental if can help it) allow "insights" or pictures to arise, and note them, as well as summarizing any meaning(s) you may quickly glean from them...". I now encourage people to exercise more of their kinesthic awareness so to be less mentally dominate in approach to their body-awareness, but then I was just learning about the different learning styles toward the different realms of awareness. I've had some successes with clients telling me how they caught their warning's early and worked through them, or were simply surprised with awareness of releasing spasms in some muscles that we had been working with Tensing Yoga. I had told them what those were like, so not to interfere with them, just observe the cells (which I now call "celldren") learning to let go of the protection, feel how the muscles were actually tensing and releasing in order for "the kids to be convinced it was safe" to do so, etc.
The "Tensing Yoga" web page has come to focus in ways that I currently hope will attract those that are most willing to learn body-awareness, and need to find something they can learn to employ on their own. And not to just relieve pain, but to learn the heart and application of preventative health maintenance. I've come to believe there is much value in learning about focus & breathing, appropriate tension-range, work/rest ratio in the muscles, thence connective tissue resiliency under dynamic loads and pressures, thence long-term health. And my siblings are "regular" folks, have what may be considered the standard (albeit somewhat Southern influenced) all-American lifestyle, and can be reluctant to listen to their "health-nut" "baby-brother" -- even if he has probably dis-proven the "degenerative bone disease" diagnosis for his siblings. And then there are psychologists researching whether attitudes may be "genetic". How about "degeneration" as related to stubbornness? (Related links at lower right.)
1 "Kids": Do not try this (the following) at home - in fact, NO one should try this (one-armed stupidity) anywhere :: About 7th or 8th grade I began pressing 55 lb+ over my head - with one hand, due to my not being able to load enough on the bar for two hands (instead of finding another way to supplement the 110-lb set [counting the small bars]). I would reach down and pull the bar up from the floor - from the opposite side of the body of my reaching hand (!)- up over my head, and onto my shoulder, then press it. Then put it back to the floor the same way it came up. Which, of course, puts a VERY unbalanced load on the spine. After a while of this came the near total immobilization at my friends house (bewilderment, embarrassment, and excruciating pain), and the chiropractor visit. But kids will be kids, and a few years later, would do the downfield runs with a football, ducking my little sprinter's body to crash my head into the tacklers bodies when I couldn't maneuver around them. Then do it again, and again... Then more weight lifting... Hence the eventual near debilitating lumbar compression injury at 34-35 yo (as restorative aid at a nursing home hospital). So now I do not jog (even though I can still sprint fairly spryly - the body's angle during sprinting reduces direct pressure on the spine). However, the morning exercises (noted further below) provide a means for helping others to prevent injury, as well as tune up safely, even aerobically work the legs, no matter their age.
from more *traditional yoga* teachers,
Dr. P.M. Sharma and Mary E. (Betsy) Rabyor
[ I say "traditional", meaning more based in ancient teachings, but they are both much more esoteric than the usual yoga teachings in the West, and yet ALSO very accepting of the use of other styles and approaches. ]
from Dr. P.M. Sharma of
Ayurvedic Healings .Com
"...I am an ayurvedic physician and working since 1992 with state government of Rajasthan (a province of india) as senior ayurvedic consultant. This is my small introduction.
I treat physical and psychological (psychiatric even) with the help of ayurvedic medicines and panchkarma. I have started to learn yoga in 1985 because this was the part of curriculum of my five and half years long ayurvedic degree course BAMS. Now I am learning the ancient traditional yoga for a decade. My 85 years master lives in the jungle and seldom comes out.
...We run a free yoga learning series through our website. This was my idea, actually people really want to meet with real yoga, but in the materialistic world, this is a way of earning. Those who are not Indian - they are naturally unknown to the reality of yoga - like, what, why, when, and who can teach this properly. They get their updates from websites or books. Some books are really very true because these books are collection of experiences and knowledge of their writers, Like the autobiography of a yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda, Rajyoga by Swami Vivekananda, Living with Himalayan masters by swami Rama, the shrimad bhagwat gita as it is, by Bhaktivedanta Swami prabhupada (ISKCON). Though by this, I can not make someone a yogi due to reasons, but we can serve him at least the reality of yoga. Yoga is complete system and one of six important philosophies (SHAD-DARSHAN) of vedas. However I started this to create an awareness among the real yoga enthusiasts.
...Actually to understand the vedic philosophy, we have to clean our mind and to put all prejudices and logic away from our consciousness, because an already filled pot can not be filled again without being empty. These are the words of my master. My master says that [ALL] religions are different ways to reach at one point and God. ...
...About my writing: In fact I want to touch only mandatory points of the concerning subject, because I am not writer, I am a physician and SAADHAK of yoga. So as I have studied these diseases, I tried to serve my knowledge and experience as it is available in the texts of medicines. I think that we must not hype the serious topic, otherwise this can be panic. The real information to my patients will save their time and will give them the real and authentic information (though all websites give) but this is my thought.
Chris, I have read many books of western writers or Indian origin writers who are now residing in USA or in west, Like Dr Deepak Chopra, David frowley, my teachers of ayurveda and My master, according to both, their knowledge is not up to marks (may be because I am not so knowledgeable as they are, So I decided to write like this. You can definitely find grammatical errors and some misuses of the word, because my english is not so well. I accept this."
Offered on ocassions by Dr. Sharma and his team: A 10-day program on ‘Divine Yoga for Inner Wellness’ at a spiritual hermitage (ashram) where saints have performed their sadhana (spiritual practices) through generations. "It offers just that tranquil atmosphere which is essential for learning, assimilating, and practicing divine yoga. In the name Divine Yoga we have had purpose when we conceptualized this program; our primary goal was to set it apart from numerous yoga programs that are offered at almost every second place. It is yoga in its most original form; derived directly from Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and not just one of those cosmetic makeovers that yoga has gone through in the last few decades. The lectures have been prepared such that physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of yoga are felt by participants immediately."
[The above has been reworded and punctuated for clarity in a few places, although in some cases, I left it up to your interpretation. But I suggest doing so considering this teacher is coming from a most humble place, and he shares from his heart. Some of Dr. P.M. Sharma's teachings are available on line, some possibly through email (via his site).]
Our Light Body: A Kundalini Awakening Testimonial
By Mary E. (Betsy) Rabyor, who was born in Wisconsin and lived in Nevada, Florida and Spain. She went to college and was a computer programmer for 17 years, with family and suburban life. Since 1990, she has meditated and learned self-healing techniques. In August of 1999, she spiritually awakened, quit her job and devoted her life to self-realization and helping others. Shortly after starting Reiki self-healing in 2005, her kundalini unexpectedly awakened. She continues to work with her kundalini transformation today. She lives in Wisconsin and is a skilled distance healer, author, poet, intuitive, and spiritual mentor. [Very very impressed with her story, I found one good place to begin (relative to *consciousness* and YOGA), especially if you're not familiar with an eastern or esoteric point of view, is "What is the personality".
"Dear Chris, I did ashtanga yoga and hatha yoga in the past, nothing recent. I agree with you that yoga is not about getting into the position or trying to stretch further, it is more about learning to be aware in body movement and meditative... when the kundalini transformation started, I had strong spontaneous yoga (kriya's) movements, and from this I eventually learned how to do spontaneous yoga as an exercise. at first I was taught how to do this, when my body had changed enough in the nervous system then it happened by itself, simply by letting go of mind and body control. This is described in this article: http://phoenixtools.org/tools/moving_as_awareness.htm"

Is about the relationship of nutrition and psycho-emotional environment during infancy and childhood upon key aspects of development of 'A Stable Platform for Perception', the 'Psycho-emotional Infrastructure', it's maturation through adulthood, facilitating cellular re-organization, and functional/ systemic
re-organization of the neuro-endocrine system (neuroplasticity as a result of experience, but not just in the brain. Proprioceptors relate to muscles, but much more actually), and thereby upon the preventative maintenance capability and the "natural aging process" about possibly/ likely new potentials in aging without near so much disability and pain in the later stages.
This is at the "Body-Mind Nutrition" page, with considerations in relating a transition in diet & nutrition to personal and spiritual growth, and the benefits of such transition.
The neuroplasticity aspect relates well to the proprioceptors, as covered at The "Body-Mind Integration" Page, including relationships with "Adrenaline ...Brain Activity, Muscles and Tendons ...Aging" about adrenal response related to all the above (incl. trauma, long-term conditioning), as well as "EQ, IQ, Emotional Integration, and a Synergetic Relationship".

Imagine a game show type environment, with the 'master of ceremonies' and a guest comedian or other celebrity conversing and commenting as noted above, and you can't help but notice the highly lit "cages" on either side of them, slightly above the stage. Here are suspended two to four contestants, each sitting in his/her own open-air booth, with four large screens by each. Two screens show read-outs both digitally and graphically charted, the stats for each contestant's individual capabilities.
Another screen is for ocassional video's of a contestant's history to be accompanied by the MC's narrative. Most exciting is the 4th screen with real-time video of individual muscles digitally outlined and color coded for clarity, illustrating their muscle and tenden dynamics as they are working the different anatomic structures, in video quality that far exceeds the current best MRI video-photography, facilitating clear illustration for comparison of one individual's working dyanmics to another's.
These dynamics, now fully measured in every property, digitized, charted, and videographed, include the *tension range*, or the maximum
optimal range of tension between fully relaxed and fully contracted, and the switch rate between the two, thence *work/rest ratio*.
As well as texture, strength (resilience/ fatigue), and degree of muscle isolation/ efficiency, the later relating to whether or not either contestant is using the "Correct" muscles for the job. The video and read-outs might also show circulation system volume(s) and related stats.
How could this ever be more than just a dream of ...someone who
sees the relationship between body awareness and ultimate in long-term preventative health maintenance?
How? This would be brought about by research into devices that read the bio-energetic and other signatures in the connective tissue around muscle fibers (created by tension retained in the muscles) to such a fine degree that a person's health history can be read - from birth to the present moment.
...And because there is a significant relationship between this tension and injuries that are most likely to occur in the future for any given person. From this reading, a long-range health regime can be developed for maintaining an optimal state.
It's true, the "Muscle Madness" game is not really the end goal here, but with the basic prototypes of the devices, developed relatively early on by the Fascia Memory Project (as proposed), the game could go on - and help fund the project- as described at The Fascia-Memory Project pages which includes a table of contents for the 9 pages, research references, links to accompanying documents at this site, and charts including Fascia-Memory Project Overview Chart..
