Dr. Feldenkrais taught many variations of the Pelvic Clock, a lesson that would go on to be one of his classics and featured in his book Awareness Through Movement. This is on such lesson with many variations of circling the pelvis. A great lesson for freeing the hip joints and lower back while integrating the spine and the head.
The hands drape over the head to hold it while you explore many ways of twisting through the spine. The result is tremendous freedom of the neck and spine.
This lesson creates a powerful ease and openness through the entire chest and back. Movements of the spine through the chest help to differentiate ribs and vertebra.
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 cultivates a twist through the torso coordinating the flexors and extensors. Alternately expanding the chest and abdomen improves the twisting.
