Melina-thank you I LOVED this practise with the block on my head ----i felt so calm and centred afterwards! It´s funny because I teach English here in Spain and when my little kids are getting overexcited I often play a version of "Simon says" - do you know this game in the states? Anyway, I get the kids to put their books on their heads and then walk slowly round the room or stand up and sit down,etc. They love it - and within minutes they are calm and focussed, their wee faces are a treat.¨¡! Isn't it strange that it´s ever occurred to me to do t myself when Im stressed - until now!
I loved the core work on my back. Though my right hip clunks every time I do the wide circles which is a bit disconcerting! It’s not painful, but it is not relaxing! Should I avoid it? (I realise as I am typing that may be impossible for you to answer and is probably for me to judge!) I liked the playfulness of the movements here and the block-on-head scenario added a new awareness in my feet.
Hi Ali ~ Thanks for watching the show and trying out all these new moves! As far as your hip and the clunky movements...I have a few GENERAL things to recommend, please try these and see if they make a difference: 1) make the circles much smaller 2) keep your lower abdominal muscles turned ON as your first priority, then circle the leg and see if that extra support keeps things in place. 3) do all of the above. I'll look forward to hearing how it goes!
