Re: help escaping extension - connection problem

Can you slowly exhale and let yourself extend into finding connection as you do so? In a Pilates environment, what we call extending would be called "moving down to move up" and can be a good metaphor for letting everything drop down and finding as a result the arm rising in extension. So called "simple" (ha!) paired exercises like tai no henko are perfect for playing with these things.
