Watching Buffel, the visiting wild Elephant Seal, rear up in one smooth, powerful movement into perfect spinal extension, is one of the most inspiring movement-watching experiences I’ve had in a long while. So how do we get the best from our spines? Thoracic extension becomes less and less available to us as we get stiffer, slouch, breathe poorly and do predominately forward-facing activities. The morning’s Feldenkrais exercises will focus on gentle extension and how we get more evenly spread movement throughout the vertebral column.
