In this exploration, we initiate movement from each individual lobe on one side and then sequence through each lobe. This is different from initiating movement in your muscles.
The right lung has three lobes: an upper, a middle, and a lower. The left lung has only two lobes: an upper and a lower. However, the upper lobe of the left lung is divided into two sections, an upper and a lower, so we can approach both lungs in a similar way.
It can be helpful to start with small movements to feel that the initiation is coming from the lung itself. When the movement sequences into your lower lobe, feel how the lower lobe brings energy and strength into your leg on the same side.
Explore on one side first and feel the difference between what each side feels like.
This exploration may be helpful for people with limited mobility in the lungs, spine, shoulders, and hips.
