Hanna Somatics Cat Stretch Series - 8

Like all Somatic Exercises, these movements should be done slowly, gently, and with maximum awareness. Do them in an easygoing and catlike manner.

8. Seated Rotation:

Sitting with your right hand on your left shoulder and with both knees bent and facing left, rotate your trunk to the left 3 times.

Holding your trunk motionless at full left turn, turn your head to the right and back 3 times.

Turn both your head and your trunk in alternate directions 3 times for the full spinal twist.

Still holding your trunk to the left, lift your face to the ceiling while dropping your eyes to the floor and vice versa 3 times.

Do the same for the other side of your body. This will take about 60 seconds.
