Exercise 1 | Box (Solo)
Root move #7, the box. The box is smooth, multidirectional, and it gives you permission to groove. It works well with many timings, 1-2-Whoosh being the best timing to learn it.
Start with side moves back and forth to identify your weight and free leg. Then take two moves, forward or backward, ending with a whoosh to the side.
1-2-Whoosh = Forward-Forward-Whoosh or Backward-Backward-Whoosh. Feel your whole body powerfully moving in these directions.
You can start the box on either side. Play with your left leg starting forwards and then backwards (right side of the box), and then play with your right leg starting forwards or backwards (left side of the box).
Your kickstand leg is imperative to maintain, otherwise, you can confuse which foot to move next, and/or lose your balance. So remember to articulate your kickstand leg as you box.
Enjoy and become confident with the box and it will treat you well.
