Lie on the ground first face up and than face down. Tense and relax in parts and in waves and than proceed to press the part tensed to the ground going over all the body and now also on the sides.


Continue to do the same drill only now you lift that part in question off the ground and focus on relaxing your parts which are close to it.


Continue to using the legs to turn your body over from face up to face down and as you do this move your arms continuously to learn how it changes the way the body moves on the ground.


Continue to lifting both legs off the ground and use the back muscles now to move the legs from side to side and up and down. Relax the shoulders and arms and help yourself by placing your hands behind your back so you become aware of the movement your back is able to perform.


Continue to sitting on your behind and lifting your arms over your head. Relax the shoulders and lie down and get up using your legs and body.


Continue to repeating the same drill only now you lie down and roll to face down and keep moving all without letting the arms touch the ground.


Continue to lying on your stomach and placing your hands behind your neck. Arch up as you breathe and very slowly relax down and mind how you move your head. Relax your shoulders and hips and Note to the direction of your eyes and remember the body goes where you look.


Keep your hands behind your neck and use your legs to roll face down and up a few times and than lift your legs in the air and repeat the rolling learning to move from the body.

Repeat the previous drill and now as your lower back is on the ground lift one leg first and than the other till they are perpendicular to the ground and than use your back to lift them more toward where you are looking and at the same time move your shoulders as you did in previous drill to help the body move.


Lie on your stomach and hold both ankles with your hands. Arch your back so you lift in the air and slowly relax down. Use the breath and the body movement to roll face up and face down a few times and learn to connect the tension between the shoulders and hips.


Lie on your back and lift just your back in the air using your legs and shoulders. Hold your hands together behind your back and roll face up and face down without letting the hips or hands touch the ground. Learn to connect leg drive with the body.


Lie on your back and place either a stick or one arm perpendicular to the spine and using the breath slowly lift your body so you use only this for support. Learn to place soft tissue on hard contact and align hard tissue to pull together soft tissue and work on soft contact.


Sit on your knees and reach to the sides with your hands. Slowly lower yourself forward and make sure something other than your head touches the ground first.

Sit on your knees and hold both hands at your back and place a bag or a person in front of you and push yourself forward using the shins and feet to meet the ground and what is in the way. Slowly push the object or person ahead till you can do this on the ground and mind your eyes and chin.
