How it's done
Stand to the side of the practitioner with one leg in front and one in back of the practitioner's leg. If you are taller than the student, bend your knees in a sort of sumo squat. You will then use your torso and arm to support the practitioner's back and offer stability. Your hands can massage tension out of the neck and you can help to create length in the spine. Additionally, you can help to deepen the breath.
Effects of adjustment
- Create length in spine
- Soften tense neck muscles
- Provide stability
- Experience common balance
