Discover the influence of your body position on strength, stretch, and control – by performing similar movements in ALL positions. We keep the “movement” the same. But change the orientation* [Standing, sidelying, prone (stomach), supine (on your back), seated…)
You will notice that orientation can be used to your advantage. Taking an exercise into a “gravity-assisted” orientation is a beautiful way to prepare your body. Think of the push-up. (An exercise often prescribed way too early). You can build the appropriate strength and perfect technique needed against the wall first. Practise what the movement should feel like in a position of support. Build the appropriate strength (and feel the correct muscles working). Because – when something is too hard. You can’t learn, refine or change. You practise bad strategy (or hurt yourself).
It can also be a way to challenge a movement. Time to befriend gravity.
