Shoulder Circles

Side-lying on your right side, you move your left shoulder forwards, backwards, up, down, make clockwise circles, and lastly counter-clockwise circles.

In this lesson you will learn that about thirty slow, light, and short movements with your left shoulder are sufficient to change the fundamental tonus of the muscles, which then will spread to the entire left half of the body. Thus any action becomes easy to perform and movements become light.

Side-lying on the left side, legs stacked together, legs bent

Left shoulder forwards

Move your left shoulder forwards, a little bit. And then allow it to return again, to where you started.

  • That’s the home position for your right shoulder.

    Allow your head and shoulders to turn together with your right shoulder. Allow your head and your chest to roll.

    Does your shoulder move together with your head and chest, equally much, or does your shoulder move much more?

Left shoulder forwards

Move your left shoulder forwards, a little bit. And then allow it to return again, to where you started.

In side-lying on the left side like before

Left shoulder backwards

Move your left shoulder backwards into the opposite direction of forwards.

  • Moving backwards might work-and-feel different than forwards. How far does your right shoulder move backwards easily, is it the same distance as forwards?

    Allow your chest and head to roll together with your right shoulder. How much do they roll? Do you feel as if all separate parts are moving, or do you move at once, all together?

Left shoulder backwards

Move your left shoulder backwards into the opposite direction of forwards.

Left shoulder forwards and backwards

Combine these two directions to draw a line. Is it a line? Or is it a curve?
