Not the usual pelvic clock


The nice thing about the weekly lessons is that I can share whatever I’m on a kick about!

This week, it’s the pelvic clock—sort of.

This lesson is many clocks. It’s neurologically challenging, so play with it. It’s not a puzzle you can solve by muscling through. It’s a puzzle best solved in the brain. The movements here work best when you let go of trying hard.

The neck and head become free and light in this lesson. It’s a paradox of precise, yet uninhibited movement.

I did this lesson three times today! The amazing thing is that I can differentiate the head and pelvis much better than a year ago. Who knew?

I haven’t been practicing these moves, I’ve just been doing a lot of Feldenkrais, which influences all aspects of my ability to sense and track.

The cool thing about “awareness” is that it’s distributed throughout the system. I have issues with my hip that won’t be fixed by repetitive movement, but my whole life can be better through awareness.

This lesson is slow, mindful, and yummy. Have fun with it.

Approach with a smile.


If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with death
Perhaps the world can teach us
as when everything seems dead
but later proves to be alive.
