Our Philosophy: AM-I
Awareness, Movement, & Implementation
Get Off The Couch!"
In order to understand and appreciate this song, let's visualize our movements in a different way. Instead of thinking... Sit or Stand Up Straight... Think comfort; Think grace; Think power, and Do The Bobble...
Bobble head. Visualize one end of a spring attached to the top of your neck, and the other end attached to your head. The head gently bobbles and floats all the time. As you inhale, the head floats and bobbles upward, and on the exhale it floats and bobbles gently down.
Bobble shoulders. Visualize one end of a spring attached to the top of your rib cage on either side, and the other ends are attached to your shoulders. The shoulders gently bobble and float all the time. As you inhale the shoulders float and bobble upward, and on the exhale they float and bobble gently down.
Our rap song and all this fuss about bobbling... could look gimmickry, but surely it's not! If we can create a buzz and a flair to get your attention, we're all for it.
Now that we have your attention, we'd like to share some of the science behind the rap. Science is defined as the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical natural world through observation and experiment.
At Rocketship Wellness we've studied common every day movements like sitting, standing, walking, and working, and discovered the best strategies to execute these activities. Through our research we've created movement principles, and we will present some of them here. These movement principles continue to be a work in progress, and we welcome your feedback.
Posture / Movement Education & Posture Rap :-)
The new posture rap song Move It Or Lose It is a reflection of the spirit and fun Rocketship Wellness infuses into the education process.
Move It Or Lose It gives you a new approach to the boring run-of-the-mill philosophies on movement education. Get ready to BOBBLE!
Have you heard the saying… Sit up straight or stand up straight? The general public uses this phrase as a strategy for sitting and standing, and to get folks thinking differently, we've created a reverse paradigm called Don't Stand Up Straight.
With over 35 years of research we've discovered that a better strategy for moving including sitting and standing, should include self-awareness and movement principles. Through self-awareness we evaluate our feelings, and make sure to keep our movements flowing and relaxed. One of the principles of movement requires the mind to direct the body. In our song move it or lose it, we are instructing the body to bobble and keep moving. Even in sitting and standing positions, the body is moving and we must honor, appreciate, and promote this essential principle.
Bobble butt. Visualize one end of springs attached to your sits bones, and the other ends are attached to your seat. When you're sitting the pelvis, butt and everything above float and bobble all the time. As you inhale the butt floats and bobbles upward, and on the exhale it floats and bobbles gently down.
Bobble body. Visualize one end of springs attached to the bottom of your feet, and the other ends are attached to the ground. Also, visualize springs attached to the ankles and legs. When you're standing the feet and body float and bobble all the time. As you inhale the feet and entire body floats and bobbles upward, and on the exhale everything floats and bobbles gently down.
I'm not stuck up, I ain't no slouch…
Bobble yourself, get off the couch.
Don't Stand Up Straight, is the new divine…
Feel the beat, feelin’ fine.
Bobble head, bobble butt…
Bobble shoulders and zing your strut.
Now it’s time, to bobble feet…
Bobble body, and then repeat.
Breathe it in, breathe it out...
Move it or lose it…
That’s what it's all about!

Bobble It, Do The Bobble...
1) There's no such thing as good or bad posture. What exists are positions and movement under the gravitational forces of the earth, and each movement and position maintain a measurable amount of load force or strain.
2) The conscious mind is the keystone component of efficient movement. The mind brings us self-awareness, and this allows us to assess and modify our postures.
3) Hands move; body moves. With every activity, feel the energy of the entire body working together as a single force.
4) Your mind gives directions to yourself. Adjust and bobble the load strain of any movement.
5) Bring awareness to the movement occurring with your breath. Feel your body expanding in all directions as you breathe in, and feel the body relax and letting go on the exhale.
