I once asked my mom if she knew she had ribs before she did Feldenkrais. She said, “Yes, but only in the front.”
What is your self-image of your rib cage? When you look for the answer to that question do you go to image, sensation, feelings or words? Is your experience of your rib cage (or rib basket as it is called in German) informed by images you’ve seen? Do you pay more attention to the way your chest is tight or stiff or do you more attention to the flexibility, movement and adaptability of your rib basket?
If you have a moment right now
(or maybe later) spend a little time sensing, imagining, experiencing your chest/ ribcage/ thoracic spine behind and sternum in front. You can touch with your own hands and move a little bit in any way that will help your feel how your ribs are intimately connected with many other parts of you. All of you.
The shapes of your thoughts and feelings are expressed in the chest and abdomen, the way you breathe and move through the world.
How does observing yourself in this way impact your experience of yourself? What will you find if you learn to experience your chest as a soft and flexible basket rather than a rigid cage? What treasures await?

• Sense of calm, alert uprightness
• Feelings of connection to yourself, the present moment, the ground
• More freedom in your neck, shoulders and arms
