of the spine, opening and releasing all the centers in the body. This
initial preparation awakens the senses, creating an awareness of the body
moving as an integrated whole. The body is then ready to move into larger
movements involving the extremities, always working from the core.

movements increase in functional and complex actions thus increasing the
demand on the neuromuscular system. In this way

perfect conditions for achieving a more organized, coordinated and
integrated way of moving.
