Take any natural position you find yourself in as in standing, sitting and prone and slowly tense one side of you. It can be the front, back side or lower and upper half and keep yourself tense. Once you feel you are fully tense on the picked side start to feel and relax the other side of you and through awareness feel where you got tense in the neighborhood of the tension and this will bring a lot of awareness and through this control to your movement.
Now do this in a non natural position such as twisted or bend by yourself or by a partner. Work on just minding the tension in your body as you are being twisted and feel how this tension or its elimination by awareness can free you to do the work rather than responding to someone else working.
