Enthusiasm is delightful!
Where do you teach?
Hi Tiziana! Thank you for this question. I, too, learned headrest up. Through years, I have learned many approaches from different master teachers and movement experts. What I have learned most is
1.) always teach the person in front of me, and
2.) Be certain of my goal (the "why")
My intention in Footwork is to build foundation for standing posture and gait. With that goal, I like to allow the natural curves of the neck. In modern culture, we spend a lot of time with "head forward" (driving, computers…) I use footwork to balance the front and back slings by extending the hips and opening the chest with head in line with the spine. They can then translate that awareness to upright positions.
If someone who is too tight to have the headrest down, I do put it up to accommodate.
Watching videos on PA, there are examples of both positions from wonderful teachers giving great classes. Just do what works best for you or your clients :)
Hi Jennie! I"m so glad you enjoyed the class! My studio is in Chicago.
hi Jennifer ,sorry for my late answer!
so..thank you for your explanation ..it makes sense for me and sure..first thing ..we always have to teach for the person in front of us!! but i am used to that when i change something of the classicity of the method I say it and normally i give an explanation of the reasons......that's it!! but the energy and enthusiasm in your teaching was great Tiziana
