Reaching like a skeleton

For the most part you are lying supine, on your back, with your left arm extended towards the ceiling. You rotate your left arm to find personal neutral, lift the arm towards the ceiling to discover kinematic linkage, leaning points, and unnecessary effort. g

This lesson is suitable for an introduction to explore and discover some basic principles of the method, such as why we lie down to free up resources. How we observe. How we identify unintended effort and personal neutral. How we work with the parasympathetic nervous system. How we set up a situation to explore kinematic linkage, and that there is no limit to improvement.

Supine, lie on your back.

Supine, be comfortable

In this lesson comfort is a condition for learning.

  • Free up resources by lying down: therefore the nervous system does not have to deal anymore with opposing gravity and balancing to prevent falling.

On the back, left arm towards the ceiling.

Hold left arm towards the ceiling

Find a balanced place, there should be not much effort to hold your arm.

  • Is the palm of your left hand facing more downwards (towards the feet) or more to the right (towards the midline)?

    Observe, accept, and admit how it is.

On the back, left arm towards the ceiling.

Turn left arm around its own axis

Find and sense where the movement is easy, and where it takes a bit more effort to move.

  • Don't draw circles, the movement is a rotation, like a screwdriver.

    Search and find your personal neutral, can you feel where it is? What is neutral for the human species?
