Description of the theme:
Side-sitting, leaning on one hand, you hold one hand lifted (drooping like the wing of a dead bird) in front of your face (hand hanging down), and turn around yourself, differentiating eyes, head, shoulder girdle, but also relating the turning to the pelvis, hip joints, and down to the feet.
