pressure/no pressure

28 Jun

Purpose
Fun, physical understanding

Instruction
Tell the players to pair up to start the exercise. Then instruct one apply pressure to the other by pushing/pressing softly somewhere on the partners body, the partner then tries to yield to the pressure. You can use the methaphor of the one person trying to squash a mosquito (that little pressure is needed) and the other is trying to save it. The exercise should be dynamic and you should encourage the players to move around.

Ending
End the exercise when you feel the players has understood the basic point of yielding to pressure.

Variation
You can vary the exercise (and increase the dynamic) by letting both players try to push pressure on the other.
