Just a brief post on the training the body's strength-control ability this evening. Recently I have watched/been sent a number of great practical and theoretical videos on this: HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE.
Two are from Emile Conrad's Continuum system, the other are two people who have developed a high degree of body control on there own. I love this type of strength-control in the sea of gravity. Check out the skin, rib and spine movements in the 'undulation' clip! Great body control.
The Continuum post on aging being a starvation process of the tissues is an interesting idea.. I love the 3 dimensional exploratory and play elements to this type of movement; and think that it has profound implications for Kinesthetic Education (rather than PE or Physical Education of the moment, which is sport based and not introspective).
Anyhow, I have been playing around with some hand-balancing lately - and it is FUN! Here is a Hand-balancing COURSE for free, from Sandow Plus.
