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.
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.
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.
