The extensors of the back

In prone position, you lie on your front side with your legs extended and feet standing on their toes, the knees and pelvis are lifted, and you push from the toes to the head upwards. Head and arms are in various positions. This creates an arch in the back, which spans from the toes up all the way to the head.

We explore how different head and arm positions affect how movement is transmitted from the feet up to the head. Furthermore, we learn how the movement can be divorced from any head or arm position and thus not being much affected by any specific head or arm position. We learn to get a better feeling for being centered between left and right. This long lesson packs in a number of smaller lessons.
