- AY Volume 3 Part B
- Reel 10, Track 3, Lesson 1
- Starting with asymmetric movements that shorten the back (a kind of extension), then asymmetric lengthening the back (a kind of flexion). This alternating of arching and rounding repeats with delightful variations.
- Some might find this rather athletic. An alternate challenge is finding ways to do the movements gently.

Focus of the teaching
- In addition to the movements, what theme or ideas did the teacher focus on
- I think that AY 140 assists with the lengthening of the back. And others such as 134, 135, 136 & 137 may also intersect with this idea of lengthening/freeing the back. — rob
