Your breathing gear, support from both the earth and from space
This took the 'sail' image that describes the relationship between head and wings and expanded to the base of the spine and low back ribs - to provide a sense of how the spine between these things can relax into the support of the arriving breath - together with the inner relates of the out breath the picture develops a general sense of how 'your breathing gear' can be the source of your movement and release.

This began with a deep exploration of how to bring yourself to a kinder relationship to the spine and the body, through breathing relationships to the space all around yo and the world beneath you, that means you can interact with and feel supported by the world from the centre of your being.

Exploring rolling through the spine to discover the core/rib activity in flexion, followed by exploring the same relationships that can happen more passively in forward bend...taking it into how to relax the neck/lumbars in uprightness.

The sacrum within the pelvis & the spine within the ribcage
A reasonably 'dynamic' class based on the physicality of bringing the girdles and associated spaces/structures into supportive relationships with the spine from the contact we make with the earth.... to be able to mover FROM the awakened spine itself.

Sidedness and inner relationships between the plevic space and the ribcage
This was quite an intense class with just a few students bringing awareness to how most of our periferal complications in the body can be resolved by finding relationships to what we are doing that support natural responsiveness of the core and ribcage cross-diagonally to leave us simply ....centred
