Focus of Moshe’s Teaching

  • Indicate focus or key principles that are made explicit in the teaching
  • “There are other means of locomotion that are faster, but there are no other means of locomotion that make the hips and the hips joints and the pelvis as mobile as this one, and this also softens the spine. When you do this movement, the spine, from the pelvis to the neck, is twisting in every movement, bending also, and making the spine more flexible.” MF
