Yield and Push
The idea of how yielding with the whole body pulls you back and then you sense a response to be repelled into activity. Through hands-on-work I felt like I was actually stuck to the ground. My partner and I talked about the imagery of pushing play-dough or blue tack onto a surface. When I began to move my movement was really fluid and free. I noticed that in moving my partner, there was a strong sense of body reacting to each movement and that no matter what direction I pushed my partner, there was always a willingness to go there and give in to the movement.
