Movement Intelligence has been defined recently by Ruthy Alon as, "an intrinsic sense of effortlessness that comes from having and heeding well-calibrated sensory-motor feedback."
This expands and elaborates one of the more difficult of the multiple intelligences proposed by Martin Gardiner. Gardiner had proposed "Kinasthetic Intelligence" and used examples of high-performing people. He was unable to define it very clearly.
Dr. Feldenkrais proposed a method whereby everyone can develop their kinasthetic intelligence, but the process has not been well articulated in verbal form until Ruthy Alon coined the phrase, "Movement Intelligence". She added, it is " our innate capacity to recognize and utilize the sweet spots of optimal coordination, fine tuning the process that transforms intention into action. MI incorporates conventional kinesthetic concepts of flexibility, balance, alignment and strength, as well as integration and endurance, but it is something more: it recognizes the human organism’s ability to organize itself “organically” — elegantly and in its entirety, with spontaneously coordinated harmony — for optimal efficiency, maximal efficacy, and pleasurable, sustainable living. "
This is the basis for her earlier series, "Bones for Life" and now, is fully articulated in a well-defined field and classes, "Movement Intelligence", as well as the website, "movementintelligence.org" for more in this definition, click here.
