Rodney,

I am a speech pathologist and do craniosacal work. I first learned of such concepts that you presented from Judith Aston (see a video clip of her here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pn6jGVgmfZM). In craniosacral, I use that point of balance when holding a client's head, digging in with my elbows onto the table, I play with the ab and adduction to achieve a greater communication with the cerebral spinal fluid. In speech therapy, I support my articulation clients in finding that point of balance for tongue, lips and jaw movements. Recently I observed the movements of an unusually good plasterer. He, clearly was using points of balance throughout his entire body to create his art--even though he didn't know it.

I find myself drinking this up. Can't get enough. Did you figure this out on your own, or did you learn it from someone, if so who?

Thanks

Sally

These poses and this internal awareness are Power. Look at photos of people like Nelson Mandella, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Judith Aston and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen. You know it when you see it. I love developing my internal awareness and I learned something from these riveting videos.

I have been practicing since childhood and this is so inspiring. Earlier today, I set an intention to be healed or find healing. I wept after the first segment. It was so simple and intricate... energies I had formed attachment to just floated away. These teachings will become a staple in my practice.
Thank You Mr. Yee.

I am a beginner at yoga, and i always had trouble with my back and i also have trouble touching my toes and all sorts, but this is really helping me get where i want to be! if it wasn't for Rodney's detailed explanations, i would still be doing everything wrong. i appreciate you Rodney!

he always explains each step as he goes through each pose. this one especially ties the core and body positioning details together

Love Rodney, and I wish only the categories were labelled more clearly -- this one should be labelled only MEDITATION and CENTERING ...
