This was precisely the focus of Christine Mair's teachers' workshop at
last month's Capital Weekend here, that she calls "covering on the
diagonal". She had an interesting exercise to demonstrate this, using
"markers" held by each person as they moved through reels of 3 on
opposite sides, so that you focused on your "equivalent" for covering.
Very enlightening.
