Balanced upright sitting
Flexion and extension in sitting initiated from the pelvis. Using the hands to feel the distribution of movement.
In our highly visual world we often use our eyes to keep balance, and we keep our head stable in relation to the room around us, instead of moving the head in response to the movements of the pelvis and the rest of the body. In this lesson we bring about proportionally distributed movement throughout the entire spine, instead of focusing on and moving certain areas only (for example when trying to adjust the neck position). We become aware of how to employ the entire spine, including the pelvis, for changes in posture. This is not a means of „fixing” the upright sitting posture, but instead of becoming aware of what we do, and expanding on our possibilities; thus improving our skills.
