Frictioning is a simple technique that can create stability in your yoga poses any time you have two or more points of contact with the floor.

Activate Your Muscles Using Friction

Pushing against the floor activates muscle and depending on how you do it, you can activate muscles in such a way that you create stability.

It Also Helps You Feel Your Body

With awareness directed in the right place, it's also a great way to help learn to feel your body.

This same technique can be used in a variety of ways to strengthen both the legs and the arms, and even the mid-section.

For example, frictioning the feet while standing is a great way to make the legs feel strong. Done with clear instructions on how to guide your awareness, it's also a great way to develop body awareness as well as muscle control in general.

But what if you only have one point of contact with the floor?

While "Frictioning" is a great way to activate muscles and feel them activate, and also a very simple way of creating stability or movement, it doesn’t work if you only have one point of contact with the floor.

And so Frictional Muscle control includes techniques for activating muscle even when you only have one point of contact with the floor, such as when trying to balance on one foot.

A Routine for Practicing Integrated Muscle Control

This set of videos takes you through a sequence of yoga poses.

  • In each pose, you’ll use friction, and other techniques, to activate muscles and/or joints.
  • You’ll learn to feel muscles and joints activating, create stability, and strengthen your legs, arms and midsection.
  • Rather than activating muscles in relative isolation, these techniques tend to activate muscles in such a way that they work together.

So, these are great techniques for "integrating" your yoga poses.

Video Break Down

The first video includes some seated poses with exercises that warm up your shoulders and arms.

The second video focuses on a sequence of standing poses that uses combinations of foot and hand friction.

Option 1

The next video teaches you how you can use these techniques when doing chaturanga (a yoga push-up). If you have weak arms and would like some simple progressions, or even options for working towards chaturanga, this video may help.

This video is optional.

Option 2

An alternative is the splits video which shows you how you can apply these techniques when working towards both front splits and side splits.

This option includes progressive exercises for working towards both side splits and front splits.

This video is optional

Option 3

The third option includes both the chaturanga video and the splits video.

All options include videos 1 and 2.

Using the Same Techniques in Different Poses

One important idea you can learn from this workshop is how the same techniques can be used in different poses.

You’ll also learn how to feel the different changes that go on inside your body when you change the way you interact with the earth.
