The Pelican represents freedom and control, united (as most birds do). During this exercise, once you, the instructor, guides your student into a strong posture and solid balance, you have the opportunity to introduce the balance challenge of your choice. In this Video Clip, Renee does an excellent job of achieving all goals of the exercise, using the TVOPAV Principle. Notice use of Vestibular (head turn), Proprioceptive (reaching arms, twisting body), and Visual (finding a new focal point). Refer to pages 65-69 in your Phase II manual for more TVOPAV.
