Example text

Sometimes you may not have been informed of a sensitive area, or the actor may not be aware of it herself. Even when I’ve been unaware of the specific reason or incident that causes an exercise to be hurtful rather than helpful, I’ve found that by trusting my instincts and listening closely to an actor, I know when to stop. I’m aware on an instinctual level of when an exercise has become dangerous and should cease. Many times, the exercise shouldn’t even be attempted at a later time without some personal closure by the actor on the issue.

If the actor is very stretched out in the hamstrings, he might open his feet to the sides, or place his fingers beneath the front of his toes. If he is very limber, he should press his hands flat against the floor. • Many times, with the vibration, emotion will come up. If it does, the actor should just let it release. Cry, laugh, scream, grunt—whatever comes, he must let it go and allow the sound release from his whole body, like it is coming from way down in the thighs with the vibration. • After some time in this position, the actor drops his butt, sucks in the stomach, and comes to a standing position by straightening his back one vertebra at a time.

The image is as if his breath is coming from his thighs, keeping the mouth open and totally releasing the pelvic area. • The vibrations will get stronger, especially in the legs. If the actor is very stretched out in the hamstrings, he might open his feet to the sides, or place his fingers beneath the front of his toes. If he is very limber, he should press his hands flat against the floor.
