- Alexander Yanai Vol 5
- Reel 16, Track 4, Lesson 4
- This lesson, in supine, combines side-bending and extension. The hand on the same side reaches underneath the foot, grasping the heel, the arch, or between the toes. The foot then stands on that hand, and then, using the foot to push to extend the knee forward away from the chest, turning the hip and knee inward and outward.
- Highly condensed outline of key movements
Focus of the teaching
- Moshe emphasizes feeling the length of the spine and legs. The principal movement in the pelvis induces movement in the mid-thoracic and shoulders that is otherwise hard to find. ~~Anita Schnee
