I enjoy exploring non-linear movement using a prop to change things up for sensory feedback. This is a short clip where I’m using a weighted ball (about 1kg) to add load and resistance. It helps me to track movement into the scapular, rib cage and spine. The spirals of my bones help to recruit the elasticity of the myofascial chains. Allowing for information from the distal to inform the proximal body in initiating movement.
