Stading to Forward Fold

Here, the suspended flow is coming to an end. In this situation the body of the receiver should already be very relaxed.
These elements offer to refine of the journey into softness that the receiver is experiencing.

The receiver’s knees must be bent to enable the giver’s feet to push here and lift the receiver’s legs and lower body. If the receiver’s legs are too relaxed to do this, simply skip this element and move on. 

The giver’s hands are placed under the dorsal and lumbar vertebrae, then gently lift the receiver’s body. Wait for gravity to bring the receiver's body back down. 

The giver provides a soft rocking motion using only gentle lifting pressure, and his legs can help by slightly moving back and forth.

30.6 details: softening the spine

From this view you can appreciate the movement of the body while rocking up and down.

30.2 softening the spine

The receiver is supported by the giver’s chest and legs. 

The giver inhales deeply into his upper chest while inviting the receiver to relax and soften her back more and more, breath by breath. This subtle movement enables the receiver to sink into a deeper state of relaxation.

30.3 rocking side to side

Hold the receiver securely but gently, then start softly rocking side to side. Keep your shoulder under the receiver’s head to support it and prevent it from dropping during the rocking motion.

30.7 details: rocking side to side

A different angle to appreciate this action and the position of the hands.

30.4 rounded rocking

This is similar to rocking side-to-side, but instead of a side movement, the giver uses a circular movement…first clockwise then counter-clockwise. Try to avoid any interruptions of the circular motion…the smoother, the better.

30.9 details: rounded rocking

Note here how the giver is squeezing the receiver’s hips, how his legs create a circular movement, and how his arms are relaxed while still holding her hands.
