Notes from class: Spinal fluidity

We understand machines. There are defined lines of compression and depression, there are defined lines of movement and there is a defined intent to each and every part.

Let us consider a less obvious machine. Let us explore the key to that machine and breathe-move our way to endless intuition.

We begin on the ground as we begin our life as babies with not much to forget and lots to learn. Relax on your back and just breathe. That is the beginning. Paying attention to the breath.

Now extend from your inhale and feel the movement of inner compression transferred to the adjoining body parts. Exhale and feel the decompression move the arch of pressure back down.

Now wait for your body to tell you to breathe between both inhale and exhale. Feel the body moving in between these two arches of inner tension and feel your heart pulse and ebb and flow with this.

Now let the breath movement connect with your spinal movement and sway from side to side on your back. Reach up with the limbs of the raised side from the joint that connects them to the body (big moves small idea)

Now let the breath movement connect with your spinal movement and sway up and down on your back. Reach up with the limbs of the raised back area from the joint that connects them to the body (big moves small idea again)

The rest is just letting the mind wonder in your own direction. More video will come on the subject soon.
