Lie on the ground and breath without ceasing. Have a partner press on you with his foot one place at a time and you work to tense first where you feel the contact and at the next breath relax. Work to keep your breath undisturbed and become aware of the stoppage and change we experience in our breath as a reaction to contact.

Continue and now instead of rising the tension relax the parts which are close to the one in contact and let the body move without focusing on any part and allowing yourself to spread in the body. This way you allow the body to move instead of collapsing and you will note the difference between awareness and just relaxation.

This is a solo drill: Do a breath pyramid where you walk and increase the number of steady steps you take on the inhale and on the exhale and on the inside listen to your thoughts. Avoid judging or evaluating your thought and simply listen. Once this is done repeat this frame of mind during movement with a partner either talking or talking with your fists and release the need to succeed. Just breath and move and feel.
