S1

Hold the WAV in a overhand grip (use the smooth bands on the WAV to make sure your hands are evenly placed).

Lie on your back. Position your body into what’s called the three-to-six month supine position (the term for the common posture of being on our backs in early infancy), drawing your legs up so your legs form a right angle with the floor. Warm-up your visual senses by slightly tipping the WAV back and forth.

Watch the liquid flow from side-to-side. 

Let only your eyes, not your head or body, follow the liquid’s movement. Roll your entire body gently from side-to-side with your eyes closed.


Modifications

  • Amplify: Close the eyes

  • Moderate: Maintain hook lying position
