Focus of the teaching

Self-image/ Good movement/ Full image

Anatomical landmarks and relationships.

Moshe is very diligent in establishing landmarks and relationships for orientation in space and support of the head throughout the whole lesson … The description of the relationships of parts throughout the lesson is very helpful for filling in missing links.

Cue relationships allowing for felt triangulation and comparison of movement in space…

He also allows time and space for exploration “do it 20x”, “15x more” and

Pendulum movement – interesting wording
