Are you ready to participate in a Feldenkrais
Awareness Through Movement lesson? Or, if you’d like to watch the lesson quickly,
click the white-circled “i” icon in the upper right corner. Otherwise, let’s begin the lesson. The title of this lesson is, Belly button upward on the stomach. Lie on the back please. Roll over to lie on the stomach. Stand hands and arms as if to do push up. Stand the elbows. Bend the head to look at the belly button
and return the head forward to the floor. Do this a few times. Pay attention to the entire spine. Which part of the spine are you flexing the
most now? What does the pelvis do to help this movement? As you look at the belly button, try to move
the belly button up toward the head. The head and the belly button come closer. The lower ribs and the spine bend forward. Leave it and rest on the back. Return onto the stomach. Stand the right hand and the arm. Only the right hand this time. Stand the right elbow. Leave the left hand and the elbows on the
floor by the side close to the torso. That means the whole arm and the back of the
hand remain quietly on the floor. Now, look at the belly button as we did just
a minute ago. At the same time, move the belly button upward. The head and the belly button come closer
to each other but a little bit diagonally. Do this a few times. Next time the head is toward the belly button,
stay there. Now elongate and shorten the right leg a few
times. Do not bend the knee. The knee is left long. This movement is mostly done in the pelvis. The right side of the pelvis is lowered to
the floor as the leg extends. Do not let the distance between the head and
the belly button elongated at all. That means not to let the leg drag
the belly button down. Leave it and rest on the back. Return onto the stomach. Stand the left hand and the arm. Only the left hand this time. Leave the right hand and the elbows on the
floor by the side close to the torso. That means the whole arm and the back of the
hand remain quietly on the floor. Now, look at the belly button as we did just

we did in the beginning. Bend the head to look at the belly button
and return the head forward to the floor. And of course, direct the belly button upward
closer to the head. Do this many times and see how easy it became. Leave it and rest on the back. This concludes the lesson. Thank you.
