Need Help Learning To Throw While Standing

24 October 2014 - 12:45 PM

I had back surgery six weeks ago to remove portions of a ruptured disk in my lumber (lower back) region.  Surgeon says I have two adjacent disks that are degenerating and may rupture if I don't change my ways!  Problem is throwing in a sitting position, bent over the wheel.  I need to re-learn how to throw while standing.  I have access to classes at my local community center, but they have neither a table-top wheel nor an instructor who feels confident in that position.  Any videos or books you recommend that deal with this topic?  Or artists that use this throwing position?  Any tips on converting/raising my Brent Model B to table height are also appreciated.
