The hands drape over the head to hold it while you explore many ways of twisting through the spine. Variations of moving the pelvis create the rotation through the spine. The result of the lesson is tremendous freedom of the neck and spine.
By exploring many ways of painting imaginary lines with your feet, you enhance their awareness and create ease in your hip joints and lower back.
This year (2017) we are exploring Alexander Yani lessons. These were lessons Dr. Feldenkrais taught at his studio on Alexander Yani Street in TeleVive, Israel.
This lesson has many variations of circling the pelvis. It is great for freeing the hip joints and lower back while integrating the spine and the head.
By working in various positions and turning the heel or heels out to sides, you begin to cultivate agility in the ankles and lower legs.
This lesson cultivates a twist through the torso coordinating the flexors and extensors. Alternately expanding the chest and abdomen improves the twisting.
