"Instead of attempting to create a stabilization by fixing or holding the body in a particular position, the method encourages the mover to find a balance between reaching, or lengthening outward (extending or expanding) and puling inward toward the bodies core (tensing or retracting). This opposition is not a static, instead there is a continuous wave like pulsation of reaching out, and reeling in from center of the body. In this way stability is attained by a counterbalance of opposing forces." (CAMPBELL, JOYCE).
