In this tutorial I will be presenting a method of exploring rotation in the shoulders and hips using straight limbs. Because the concept is one of exploration and tinkering, once you have the basic idea it is possible and encouraged to use it to explore many positions and possibilities. To give you a starting point 9 exercises are presented which demonstrate usage of the concept.
This program is much like many of my other programs in that doing the exercise is actually quite simple - most people will be able to perform it correctly on their first attempt. The interesting part isn't coordinating the exercise, it's what comes into awareness after repeated usage. As such, I advise that you put this exercise in your daily routine for 30 - 90 days straight, giving it 5 - 10 minutes of attention every day for this period.
It is of particular help in restoring left/right imbalances in the shoulders and hips as it will make them *very* obvious - the rotation simply won't go as far on one side as the other.
Craig is a student of the Da Xuan tradition of Daoism under Serge Augier and formally the creator of Aware Relaxed Connected. From 2003 – 2012 Craig studied the arts of Xin Yi Liu He Quan, Cha Quan and Yang style Taiji under his first Teacher Dapeng Wang. In 2011 he began expanding his education to include gymnastics and gymnastic strength training, various natural/global movement modalities, parkour, strength, conditioning and flexibility, Ancestral Movement and Stretch Therapy. Explorations in these arts lead to Craig creating a Body Awakening syllabus. Craig’s work has now been absorbed by Physical Alchemy and has become an integral part of the Physical Repatterning Work.
