  2. Here's the latest three video movement-patterning series from Simon Thakur (of Ancestral Movement) and Craig Mallet (of ARC training). The three videos follow the theme of leading movement patterns with the eyes (and finger-tips), and cover rolling and spiralling (rotating) through a number of postures and positions. The drills are excellent, and can be done just about anywhere! Simon is demoing them with the smoothness and movement control-awareness that you want to work towards. Nice work guys!!
