I already wrote you something, but this time it’s more of a summary of the first week of participation in the program.
I decided on the 30-day exercise management program because I thought that this way, I would be able to exercise more regularly and with greater presence. When I was doing the exercises myself, I spent quite a bit of time reading. Then I tried to do it. When reading, I tried to remember as many things as possible so that I could use them during the exercise, which distracted me from my feelings. I wanted to memorize the exercise in its entirety as soon as possible so that I wouldn’t need to read it again. This made me rush my steps and lose my will to do the exercises.
With Aleš’s (teacher’s) guidance, I only focus on his explanation. I let myself be guided and deal only with my body and feelings. While guiding me, he warns me about squeezing unnecessary muscles, and with questions, he encourages research and possible ways to lead to easier exercise execution. Twenty minutes is just enough for me to get information from the exercise that I can process during the day and maybe even use it in everyday tasks. Aleš’s (the teacher’s) answers to the questions after the end of the exercise shed additional light on the observations I feel myself or other participants in the program and indicate the causes that led to pain or difficulty in performing the exercise (leg or head lifting).
During the first week of leading the exercises, I realized that leading with a teacher is much more effective than if I doing it alone. That I have many parts of my body that I can’t feel or connect. I shouldn’t ask a question before the exercise because I have difficulty calming down to listen to the teacher’s instructions. That I tighten the right side of my neck, regardless of what I squeeze or move in my body… pelvis, heel, shoulder… and that I don’t know (can’t) relax my neck. I also felt my forehead pressing on my eyebrows. And that it is not difficult for me to take 20 minutes twice a day to do the exercises.
