• Write a couple of sentences.

Lesson Outline

  • On hands and feet. Lift R hand. Lift L foot. Lift L hand. Lift R foot. Lift L foot and hand. Other side. Lift R foot and L hand. Opposite.
  • Rest and go through the same variations again.
  • On hands and feet. Turn pelvis to sit, i.e. lift R foot and pass R knee between L hand and L foot to sit. Then from sitting, get up–vary your hands and feet position until it’s easy.
  • Other side.
  • Rest by walking.
  • Alternate. Then come up only just enough to switch, the feet not touching the floor. Then lifting one hand as you go down–which one becomes free?
  • On hands and feet, lift L hand and R foot: oscillate the pelvis/tilt on the diagonal axis you have made.
  • Turn L and come all the way to lying, and come back up again. How?
  • From lying to standing.
  • From side to side. Don’t think: that’s a slow process.
  • Return to the first variations and see how easy they are.

Focus of Moshe’s Teaching

Words are the lowest common denominator. Placing hand/foot back where it is easy to lift again. Lack of personal variation in simple movements. Response of breathing to activity.
