- Mia Segal-Gaby Yaron Evening Class Notes
- 8 August 1977 (#9), taught by Gaby
This lesson in sidelying works with lifting the leg, and turning heel/toes to ceiling, which ultimately turns the whole body towards lying on the stomach and towards lying on the back.
- Scan; roll head (return to this rolling several times).
- Lie on L side, lift head with R hand over top of head on L ear. Lengthen L leg and lift it.
- Hold L leg in air and bend and extend foot/ankle. Same, but bend and extend toes instead, both with ankled flexed and with ankle extended. Return to bending/extending ankle, then lifting leg (now specified: foot at right angle to lower leg): both easier?
- Other side.
- Face up, feet standing, fingers interlaced behind head: lift head, on to L shoulder blade; elbows and head turn a little left. Then on to R shoulder blade.
- On L side. Turn long R leg so heel points towards ceiling, and then so toes do.
- Lift leg and head with heel turned towards ceiling.
- Other side.
- On L side: toes towards ceiling, lift head and leg. Other side.
- Then on L side, lift and turn heel/toes in air, rolling towards stomach/back.
- Other side.
- Breathing, rolling head….
