Back-lying, often knees bent, sometimes legs crossed, tilting. Clarifying our image of the "five curves" of the axial skeleton in action: the traditional three (lumbar, thoracic, cervical), plus the sacrum/tailbone and the skull. Learning to sense functions and efforts through all five curves, including breathing.
- For some learning context from the workshop where this lesson was recorded, check out my blog post Info and lessons from Healthy Back workshop. It includes the principles discussed after the lesson, and links to versions of the lessons that followed after the break mentioned at the end of this recording.
- Near the end of this lesson I had a verbal slip I didn’t notice while teaching: I mention the “five lines” instead of the “five curves” of the spine. I meant the curves, which are the dominant image of the lesson; I’m asking you to check in on that image once again. Longtime Feldies know how much more often we talk about the five lines image (the stick-figure schematic) of ourselves in scans before and after ATMs. Oops.
