Remember all that toe-bending a couple of weeks ago? Coming back to the same basic position, we start to see what we can accomplish with the foot we aren’t holding.
You have a lovely set of twistable floating ribs…I know you do…. Let’s see if we can smoke them out, and change the way you organize the use of your legs at the same time.
What does this have to do with lengthening the hamstrings? Holding your feet and rolling from side to side?
This lesson is a good example of how, in Feldenkrais, we tie some localized “function” to which our culture has attached a great deal of importance (everyone’s hamstrings are “too tight”!) to a broader functional movement that is an echo of something in the developmental process of the first few years.
