from Jason Shore
This is the coolest “quick trick” you can do sitting at your desk to develop independent seat and co-ordination. The horse rider’s independent seat is not just for dressage, it’s for all horse riding sports to gain the ability of moving one part of the body without interrupting other parts or the fluidity of the horse. This email, received from Jason Shore, is currently going around all the email mailing lists, so I am not sure where it originated….but it’s brilliant!
You can do this at your desk
This will boggle your mind, and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot – but it seems it’s pre-programmed in your brain!! 1. While sitting where you are at your desk, in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. 2. Now, while doing this, draw the number ‘6’ in the air with your right hand. Does your foot change direction?
