Finally I am getting my head round making - and editing - my lesson recordings. So here is my first: it is called 'On the Side, Happier Hips & Shoulders' ...
Just 12 minutes long, so ultra-simple.

It is on one side.

To do the second side, repeat the recording and reverse the right/left directions. Then it is 24 mins.

Make your space so that you can lay on your back to start with - but have handy a folded towel or two to use as a head rest when on your side.

Usually a lesson begins with a few moments of laying on your back, this one doesn't so you should do this yourself before you start: Lie down, Tune in and scan your contact with the floor, notice how you feel before you start the recording, so that you can compare when you rest or get to the end.
The Golden Keys of any Awareness Through Movement lesson are: Move with a minimum of effort - Pay Attention to your sensory experience - Seek smooth, light and easy movement and above all, Don't do Anything that Hurts (its simply not productive here) - and, Rest often!

At the end have a walk about and see if you feel any differences in your movement. And Let me know what they are!


This next lesson is done laying on your back.

It is longer - 28 mins. Again, you should begin with a few minutes laying on your back, preferably laying flat, and scan your contact with the floor. Notice how your feet lie, which direction each points, Notice the length of each leg, Notice how your pelvis lies, your back lies, especially any spaces between them and the floor, the shoulders, arms, hands, head and neck. And the rhythm and flow of your breathing. All without doing anything to change or improve what you discover, just observing, sensing.
