As we develop our flow play through practice, we become aware that the art of learning is not always a steady upward curve. Sometimes we learn new skills with amazing speed and efficiency of effort. Sometimes it is a much longer and arduous process. From time to time we plateau, unable--it seems—to grow our practice at all. And then there’s those days where you put down your hoop and wonder woefully how on earth you could be worse at hooping than the day before!
Our bodies have an incredible control center—the brain—which initiates all movement in the body. This is accomplished through electrical signals which travel along neural pathways. Over time, repetitive movements reinforce these pathways, and many movements we make become nearly automatic. This is excellent for efficiency, but can hamper our creativity and ability to handle novelty.
