    • Coordinating Flex/Extensors- this lesson helps to clarify the function of the diagonal contraction of the extensors in walking.
    • Hip-Pelvis Freedom – The hips become more free, mobile through release of habitual abdominal tonus and through improved extension
    • Standing – reducing overall tonus, improving the angle of the pelvis vis-a-vis the femurs
    • Walking – increasing ease of transferring weight; increasing balance; increasing ease bringing knee forward
    • Yoga – any standing pose; for example Tree pose – balance is markedly improved.
