The 3 Ranges of Motion
First, let us explore all of the ways in which your hips can
move. Actually, they can move in just about any direction or combinations of
directions, but we will break these directions down into 3 ranges of motion:
Forward and back, up and down, left and right.
Now imagine that you are holding a hula hoop around your body. You can move this
hula hoop around in each of these 3 ranges of motion by tilting it forward and
back, left and right, or by "steering" it in a rotational manner
around the body. Your pelvis moves around the spine in a very similar manner.
In this lesson, you will be learning some tricks to help you discover the ranges of
motion within your own body. You will learn how to isolate the pelvis so that it
moves independently of the rest of the body, using all of these ranges of motion.
You will then teach these movements and positions to your body through exercise and repetition.
