  • Reel 1, Track 2, Lesson 2 (according to Eva Laser https://www.somatik.se)
  • Duration 42 min.


  • Starting lying on the back, coming to sit through rolling over the side. The lesson is build bit by bit, adding to the movement with every step. It’s a beautiful example of how one movement is sliced up in many parts, so that the parts can be studied in detail, and in the end they all become one simple thing.

  • I taught this lesson to three different age groups (teenagers, mid-30s, seniors) and it was a challenging experience to most of them. This is also a good first time lesson. People meet their limits very fast, overcome them, and bring a great experience back home. – travelsheep Feb 2, 2013
  • I see it almost like a maths lesson. You must understand each part to be able to proceed to the next one. Fail in one part, and you can go on only by faking it, and then after the next step you’re lost. – travelsheep Feb 2, 2013
  • I base almost all my sitting up from supine to sitting in my life on this lesson. – travelsheep Feb 2, 2013
