Releasing the Hips by holding the feet
In today's lesson, we will do movements similar to this, in a lesson based on the Alexander Yanai Awareness Through Movement® lesson. The image can be useful, as we use our eyes to learn, as well as our sensing. But, as with any image, the purpose is to help you discover the possibility for movement within your own system, and that possibility may be smaller, feel different, require a speed that allows for you to deeply sense yourself.
Only work in ease and curiosity, when you are stuck, use your imagination.
Next week, we continue on with building intelligence in the hip-joint, which affects the knees, and the feet!
Audio to be posted after class this evening.
3/5 is a combo of "Spine like a Chain" and an introduction to "Rolling Fists". The recording for this didn't work very well. I'm linking here to two lessons that are the components.
Spine Like a Chain - Liz Sisco
Introduction to Rolling the Fists - Liz Sisco.
Here's my not great recording, below.
3/12: We did a further exploring of Rolling the Fists.
The first 35 minutes, the recording is awesome! After that, not so great. Here are notes to help you remember what we played with during the part when the audio goes cablooey.
