A few pieces of the ground puzzle: 

lie on your stomach and roll from side to side: Balance on the sides and continue, roll beginning with the legs, middle and shoulders. (I mean start the wave at the…)  Next lie on your back and curle into a ball by bringing the knees to the chest. Start with one knee and the next coming to the already formed shell. next lie on your back and put the mass on the shoulders as you move the hips to the side and than put the mass on the hips and move the shoulders and continue. next put the mass focus on one hip and the opposing heel and pivot the upper body from there to one side and the other. Make sure the arms are relaxed or helping by forming the right shape for the movement to pass well. I mean by that a very simple thing. We roll the shoulder as we roll from standing to the ground so the shape will be good for the movement. But it is also the rotation itself which lends to the actuall move done by the body. Next sit on your behind with arms and legs in the air and holding onto each other and srart to roll on the ground like a plate revloving on the sides of this formed cone. Next lie on your belly and keep the position of your ribs in mind (do they stick the ground ?) breath in and lift your head and shoulders off the ground. Exhale and relax downward. next breath in again and tilt the head to one side so you begin a roll to the side and don’t forget to push with your belly. next lie on your back and raise the hips with a push from the feet flat on the ground. As they are up. Sway here and there and see how you can roll to each side in this position without banging your hips to the ground or coming into unwanted contact between your face and the dirt. 

 Enjoy and play with there movement. Make your own and try to move continuesly on the ground without pause. It is a key to unlock what the body can do.
