Begins with an exploration of standing and weight shifting.
When we discuss in the beginning, there are at least three ways to shift your weight side to side:
1. Like a tree, all one long pole from ankle to head, shifting side to side with most of the movement happening in the ankle.
2. Swinging the head in the opposite direction as a counter balance, like a large C-shape. This is how we balance in side bending standing poses in yoga. (It is almost a subset of #3)
3. Leaving the head in the middle, doing all the shifting in the vertebrae and hips, legs, and ankles. This is a movement that we do in very well-organized walking.
The movement lesson begins around 10-12 minutes, after scanning in lying, playing in standing shigting weigh, and scanning again. We find our way onto forearms and knees--a demanding position. This is a compound lesson with elements from a few ATMs, so no formal name or source.
TAKE IT EASY. Remember to take breaks.

This is the first lesson back in the Cottage for the winter. This is one of a series. You'll see two versions of it at least in the blog!
Part of a playful series that incorporates being on hands and feet. To make this more accessible, let your knees be bent, and have two solid chairs for an option under your hands, so that you don't need to worry about bringing your hands to the earth. You may find that over time, your choices will expand.
This is a partial recording of an amalgamation of many lessons and much playing. A lesson in standing, feel free to take time to rest seated, or lying on the ground. 22 minutes only, available.
Recorded at public classes, these are for your personal use only. Please read the HOW-TO before doing a lesson.
