Cross Crawl Baby! This marching is an excellent way to reprogram the nervous system, spinal muscles and various systems to work optimally together.
In addition to firing neural pathways in the right and left brain hemispheres simultaneously, a cross crawl movement stabilises the pelvis while mobilising the shoulders, reinforcing the the skills we need for walking.
According to Dr. Carla Hannaford, by doing the cross-crawl, we stimulate the corpus callosum, link the two hemispheres, and get them connected. It's one of the fastest and most straightforward techniques to stimulate our brain development and stabilise our nervous system. Whenever we do it, we're reintegrating our brain and nervous system. It's like a small reboot for your body-mind.
It is essentially an exaggerated walk which facilitates the crossover of energy between the left and right hemispheres of the brain and re-organising your mind-body connections.
