ABSTRACT

This study examines the principle of functional awareness® devised by Nancy Romita and Allegra Romita, and investigates correct balance and posture, which can be achieve through the practice of bodyfulness. To this end, I explore reflection in everyday life by applying stability and mobility to balance and posture with the principle of experiential anatomy presented in functional awareness. In addition, the essential concept of functional awareness through bodyfulness is to observe daily posture and movement habits. It can make the body move more comfortably and efficiently, therefore affects the body's balanced posture. This study is expected to enhance understanding of how one’s body can move with less stress and more comfort through a particular physical care. In addition, I hope that the body and mind create harmony and recover balance by putting mind on daily movements and looking back on life consciously.
