Proud Monkey with Sondra
Sondra teaches The Proud Monkey from Land to Water Yoga. Follow along with this Head-Tail movement through the breath. This is an easy way to access the craniosacral system through the breath and movement of the spine. The pelvis and head, the two large body masses, rock gently back and forward in relation. When the tail bone rocks back and the belly fills with breath, the head rocks forward. When the tail comes forward and the breath empties out, the head rocks back. Sondra teaches this and other patterned processes at the upcoming Online workshop, July 8-12, 2020. Kelly Ferris also teaches. More on website: www.eastwestsomatics.com. Video available until July 4.
Seahorse, Somatics with Sondra
8 minutes. Access the craniosacral system in this simple seahorse process that Sondra Fraleigh describes. Follow along to experience a sense of peace and calm. Sondra augments Amanda Williamson's video presentations on embodied anatomy. Sondra's music is Time Lift Chroma. Enjoy moving with ease in your own home during this time of crisis. The music is chromatic, in semitones that lift, just as this time of Covid will also lift. I forgot to show you the view out of my front window. Next time, and with puppy. Next video will explore more in depth how the pelvis tilts in the seahorse, or maybe you already figured it out, intuitively. I made this video with my computer camera - as you can tell.
