I'm struggling to understand why you want to be CONSCIOUSLY,aware, of your position in space , that's what todderlers and drunks and learner driver have, advanced movement skill happen once your subconsciously aware of your position, and you no longer have to plan not to fall over or walk into walls or drive into lamp posts ! your subconscious portion of the brain working far faster than your conscious portion
I can see that's it's useful as a remediation exercise, but its not where you want to be long term
A. I think the problem with drunks and learner drivers is that they don't have conscious proprioception. Toddlers have their natural abilities before too much life gets in the way.
B. I get the thinking that subconscious is better, yes it we could function perfectly on auto-pilot that would be great. But having the ability to be aware of what is actually happening can only be a good thing IMO, when auto-pilot isn't working well. If you are perfectly balanced with a full range of movement and able to achieve true alignment with your body then that's great, but how many can really achieve that? Remedial exercise/ self improvement??
