Do the movements very gently. Move with as little force as you can; do small movements rather than large ones. The less effort and force you put into your movements, the more sensitive and aware you become.
Move slowly and repeat each movement 8 to 10 times. Slow lets your brain feel and create better ways for you to move. By going slow you avoid injury while getting better at what you do.
Do small movements. Start as if you do not know how it should be done and do not worry about the final outcome. This will allow you to explore and will greatly enhance your learning process.
Look for pleasure and avoid pain. If you experience pain or discomfort, stop, slow down, reduce the effort, and look for a different way to do the movement. If the pain persists, do the movement in your imagination instead.
Look for novelty and variety. Be sure to go through all the variations in each of the lessons and do all of the lessons in their original order for maximum results.
Do at least one lesson every 2 to 3 days. You may do the lessons as frequently as twice a day. Do not do the same lesson over and over, but rather do one lesson after another in sequence. Go through the full video program series at least two to three times. Once you have done this, you may do any of the lessons at any time. Note that these directions are for the NeuroMovement programs, not this workshop, which is a mix of NeuroMovement Lessons and other information.
