Startle Reflex Somatic Education Exercise by Lawrence Gold

For clients of Hanna somatic educators.

Follow-up to Session 3, Startle Reflex lesson (clinical session). Integrates breathing with movements of neck, shoulders, trunk

The key this exercise is to synchronize the movements of breathing with the molling movements of the shoulders and the arching and flattening of your back.

As you roll your arms, your shoulders move with them. Explore for the limit of turning of your arms, both directions.

In the “back arched, chin tucked position”, press the back of your head down equally with the pressure of your tailbone/sacrum.
