The spine has the possibility for multi directional and sequential movement that can ground itself into the support whilst simultaneously reaching into the space and new directions.
However by reflex we tend to keep ourself upright and orientated.
Ci has the possibility to challenges this through the support of a partner.
How can an embodied sense of our spine give us the comfort to let go and explore more three dimensional and playfully off balance reaches?
