I have been looking for a program like this. I was interested in Trager but have not had access to a class. I like that you say this isn't Trager but what you are showing is the elements I really was looking for. I find it's really important to move energy and activate chi while getting the body to relax while work is being done. Personally, I find a lot more healing happens through relaxation than aggressive work. I wasn't sure what to practice for this module so I played around with moving my husband around with slow rocking, fast rocking, wiggling, circling and swinging. It was with more humor than therapeutics since I don't fully know what I was doing but it felt good to give and I heard the motions felt nice through our giggling.
I totally agree with you that more healing happens with relaxation than with aggressive work.
There wasn't really anything to practice in this module. It just lays the foundation for this style of working, and in the coming modules you will get all the techniques that go with it. But it's nice that you started playing with it anyway.
