How to do Movement lessons
To get the most transformation out of each lesson fallow these basic guide lines:
1) Never do any movement or place your self in any position that creates pain or stress. When your body feels pain or stress learning stops and your body tends to move towards more primitive behavior and reactive compensation. Doing the movements gently keeps your body relaxed and feeds the most helpful and positive information to your brain so it can create a better map of your body.
2) Only do movements in a way that feel comfortable and pleasurable. The movements can be small or large depending on what feels the most comfortable to you. If a movement feels too challenging, you can even do the movement in your imagination. Thats what our top athletes do to achieve perfection in their movements.
3) Any time you feel tired take a rest then come back to them movement. You want to try to keep your body and brain relaxed and fresh for learning and interpreting new data.
4) Most movements are done slowly or slow enough so you can feel deeply into the details of all the relationships involved in your moving parts and thus the information gets more clearly recorded into your brain.
Think of it as a movement meditation that takes you more deeply inside to have a deeper conversation and get to know your self better. When we move too quickly we miss deeper sensations that tell us about how we are organizing for movement and bypass opportunities for learning something new and breaking out of old habits and patterns.
