This is a fusion of two ATM lessons. Please read the HOW TO to the right.
Lessons that focus on the breath can offer us systematic changes that may seem unrelated to the focus of the lesson. Here, you'll work with some movement, and some breath--focused on the sensations that emerge in various positions. Trying on different ways of moving and breathing can help our nervous systems adapt and respond to the moment, with new and detailed information that we feed our brains through the power of our attention!
Remember to read the How-to
Less is more. If you have any current concerns, or aren't sure on the instructions, try imagining the moves first, and do so little you barely sense movement.
Direction is always in relationship to you. That means, up, is in relation to your head--lying down, up is towards the wall above your head. In standing, up is towards the ceiling/sky.
Two links, this week, since I paused the recording and restarted. I'll combine them again for you later.
An exploration based on the Alexander Yanai Awareness Through Movement Lesson 179. How does your breath impact your movement? How does your movement teach you new possibilities?
We begin already lying on the floor.
