Safe Falling Class: Rocking and Rolling

The first actual falling skills you learn in our classes are how to rock smoothly back and forth while exhaling and keeping the spine gently curved and chin tucked to the chest, and then how to roll the body from side-to-side into the ideal side-fall position.  These exercises can be practiced at home with minimal matting, or on a firm bed.  Repetition of the exercises will imprint the proprioceptive sensations so that the movements will feel natural and safe.
