I find this lesson fascinating. It explores breathing and the chest from the inside out.
While lying on the back, we begin by expanding the upper lobe of the right lung into the chest wall from the inside. With each step of the lesson, we move to another lobe of the right lung. As we do we expand each one forward, back and to the side into the ribs. Eventually, the entire right lung is expanded. We take a completely different approach to the left lung. The result is a complete sense of breath. So that the passage of air is clear, and all five lobes are present in breathing.
This lesson is based on one that Dr. Feldenkrais taught at his studio on Alexander Yanni Street. In the transcript of this lesson he talks about how he has been developing this series of lessons called “Gluing the Lungs.” His excitement about the lesson is palpable.
