Go back to the beginning of learning movement… coordinating moving the eyes and the mouth with the pelvis

Walking in our local park bringing my attention to my mid pelvis (like you do) and with the idea in mind that walking is directed from this point.

I noticed that when I did this my chin dipped, my jaw protracted a little and at first it was harder to keep my eyes on the horizon. Moved backwards and forwards between walking with and without the pelvis in mind.
Then walked with the pelvis in mind and slowing moved my eyes into varying positions to look out at the park, pausing inbetween each position… lots of alterations of breath and some letting go followed each variation..
Then walking with the pelvis in mind and making individual letter sounds, all done lazily and unhurridly… lots of alteration of breath again followed.

I stood still and repeated the same variations of keeping the mid pelvis in mind whilst looking around then making letter sounds. It was much easily to do this more smoothly.

Several things struck me.
Starting at the beginning of the developmental process
Keeping variations simple

Walk along at an easy pace.. bring attention to breath and where in the trunk is rising and falling and the position of your chin, is it slightly lifted or dipped.
Bring attention to mid pelvis while walking for several steps, next whilst attention in partially on the pelvis notice if your chin is in a different position.
