Different kinds of choice
Allowing things to be as they are is a kind of choice. It's a choice of attention, of heart, of being. Of course, in order for it to be a choice, you might first need to see past clouds of emotion, to realize what is -- which isn't always possible in the moment.
Perhaps in movement, you can find moments of what is. If you do, you get to choose whether to let them be, to be with what they are, or to move past them for now.
What’s in the "allowing" episode of moved to heal?
I invite you to try standing and seated forms with a folding component. If you want to see any of the forms, you can search by title in my library of yoga forms.
The forms + movements offered in this episode
- Standing sway
- Standing forward fold
- Kneeling lunge fold
- Childs or Hands / Knees
- Cross-leg seated fols
While you listen to the episode, you can do or not do any of the practices, and in whatever manner or degree you choose.
What makes this trauma informed?
Choices, invitations, noticing, open-ended experiments. Read more about those here.
Be moving, be true, be you
