In our daily lives, we often find ourselves repeating the same physical movements over and over again.

Whether it’s sitting at a desk, driving a car, or performing specific tasks at work, these repetitive movements can lead to imbalances in our skeletal fascia, muscles, and joints.

Over time, these imbalances can result in discomfort, pain, and reduced mobility. One way to counteract these imbalances is by incorporating a variety of movements that engage different planes of motion.

Understanding and moving through the three main planes of motion – the coronal (frontal) plane, sagittal (longitudinal) plane, and transverse (axial) plane – is essential for maintaining a healthy and resilient body.


The coronal plane divides the body into front (anterior) and back (posterior) sections. Movements in this plane include side-to-side movements such as lateral raises, side lunges, and side bends. By incorporating exercises that target the coronal plane, you can strengthen the muscles that support your spine and improve your overall stability.


The sagittal plane separates the body into left and right halves. Movements in this plane involve forward and backward motions, such as walking, running, Tai’ Chi, and dancing. By focusing on exercises and movements that engage the sagittal plane, you can improve your posture, balance, and coordination.


The transverse plane divides the body into upper (superior) and lower (inferior) halves. Rotational movements, such as twisting, turning, and reaching, occur in this plane. By incorporating exercises that target the transverse plane, you can enhance your core strength, improve your flexibility, and prevent injuries.


To create a lifetime of sustainable resilience, it’s essential to incorporate holistic movements that engage all three planes of motion.

Activities like Tai’ Chi, Qigong, yoga, Pilates, dance, martial arts, and functional training can help you move in diverse ways, improve your body awareness, and enhance your overall well-being.

By embracing a variety of movements that challenge your body in different ways, you can prevent imbalances, reduce the risk of injury, and promote longevity in your physical health.

Remember, diversity in movement leads to strength, flexibility, and a body that can adapt to the demands of everyday life. So, let’s get moving and embrace the power of holistic movements for a healthier, happier you!
