If you look at it from a seasonal perspective, Frog Rock is winter in some ways. In winter, we store our energy, we do work, but nothing is overly taxing. It’s also a gentle Yin movement. Let’s look at rolling out to dive, starting in that Home (stillness state) we roll out/dive out, which becomes the spring season (spring yang, new growth); but we always return to stillness, Home, the emptiness of the Frog Rock’s squat.
So too, with Skater. Skater can’t be performed without stillness and emptiness first. When you sit at the top of the ball, one finds stillness, centeredness, emptiness. Then we move from the center to find one foot grounding and pushing back to return to center, stillness, Home.
Let’s look at the end of the practice as having the purpose of refining ourselves to help us return to Home or emptiness. That calm after the practice, that nothingness, lightness, the buzzing felt after a RevInMo sequence, is Home.
