Questions to the A exercises

How do you experience the step forward between the repetition of an exercise?

  • The step helps me to let go, to start anew and to deepen experience.
  • The step in between disturbed me because I wanted to stay in the experience,
  • deepen it and not step out of it.

A1    How do you experience the difference between your right and left column?

  • I feel more at home in my right column than in my left column.
  • I feel more at home in my left column than in my right column.
  • The difference was so small that I don’t know if I even felt anything.

C1    Can you experience in the A Gesture  that:

  • it makes you feel at home in your body and deepens your connection with the earth?
  • it produces an instreaming quality which often is accompanied by a stream coming from the front towards you.
  • it brings the weight back on the heels naturally.

F1    In doing the “A-H behind” exercise, do you manage:

  • That the body feels naturally taken along towards the back without you actively having to do anything?
  • That the instreaming quality of the A becomes palpable again in the down-streaming H?
  • That you feel light and refreshed from within afterwards?
