It takes less than five minutes for this animal to adjust reflexively in gravity. Notice the HEAD LEADS, then the partial or secondary patterns follow (first with the forelegs then hind legs) becoming reflexively coordinated. The reflex travels down from the head end to the tail and co-ordinates the entire animal. There are some Alexander Technique “teachers” who actually dispute that the primary control even exists. This is because they are badly trained. There is no nice way to put it. But here is the principle of it for everyone to see for themselves.
