Gary Stockdale Nick Konow       View this post on Instagram   You read one question, but I am asking two. One asks you to take inventory and the other inquires how you look for it. I have always been particularly aware of the tensions I carry (emotional or physical), but early into my […]

Rib Cage Mobility

20201008 105129

Gary Stockdale     View this post on Instagram   There is an intimate interplay between the rib cage and pelvis.

The Boop Test

Boop

Gary Stockdale     View this post on Instagram   DO YOU EVEN #BOOP BRO? Scrolling through the reel of seemingly endless video captures of my movement curiosities, I found this glorious little Boop and decided to revisit. The Boop is a fine art. The tension built in the slow, stalking stages of the Boop […]

Gary Stockdale       View this post on Instagram   SLEEPY SCORPION The connections yielded by this simple rolling #PushUp left me feeling restored, springy and well integrated. Start simply by pushing and turning. Then allow the leg thrust to initiate the spiralling. Pin the pushing elbow tightly into your side until the final […]
