Bodyflight Basics, broken down into every element by SDC Rhythm:
Body Flight 1 – Basic Body Position and Range of Motion
JaNette describes the neutral FS body position, the building block for all other moves. Master a good, symmetrical, head-high position and everything else is easy from here.
Body Flight 2 – Slow Fall and Fast Fall
JaNette explains and demos how to use the arms, head, legs, hips, butt and gut to change fall rate.
Body Flight 3 – Forward and Backwards

Using input from all limbs, and remembering Start- Coast- Stop – Neutral, demoed and explained by JaNette.
5. Turns 1: Mechanics
