MP3 Download, 1 Feldenkrais Lesson.

Lie on your back with your knees bent and one leg crossed over the other. Tilt the knees to the side and back to the middle. Put the arms in a triangle position with the palms together and elbows straight. The arms are tilted to the side and back the middle. This lesson cultivates a twist through the torso asking for coordination between the flexors and extensors. Throughout the lesson alternately expanding the chest and then the abdomen is used as a way to improve the twisting. This lesson has similarities to Moshe’s classic “Coordinating Flexors and Extensors” in his book, Awareness Through Movement.
