It doesn’t get more “core” than how you organize yourself to use all the nuances and shades of potential action that your pelvis can generate and support. This classic pelvic clock lesson is an essential exploration you can return to again and again.
Drawn from the Awareness Through Movement book, this lesson explores and differentiates the “mechanisms” you use to breathe. Ribs and sternum lifting and subsiding, diaphragm tightening to lower and then returning to its high resting dome. And then shall we turn everything upside down?
Feldenkrais had a general idea about “efficient action”–that you would use all the musculature proportionately to its mass/size. More work in the large, central (proximal) muscles, light refinement from the distal muscles. This lesson explores that fundamental idea.
After a slow season, lessons are beginning again. Here’s something quiet, introspective–just a little lifting of a shoulder here, a hip there, a head from time to time. And the basic “directions” that structure the image of the action, while we’re at it.
From Nov. 7 to Dec. 12, we’ll continue with our explorations, with a series focused on the basics. Classic lessons, careful attention to ourselves, deep in the process of exploring and learning. 7:30 on Wednesdays at Creative Crossing.
And we’ll be testing out a new lighting system to save us all from the choice between the dark and the interrogation lamps!
