What’s in this episode of moved to heal?

No moves this week! I wanted to share my reasons for making Moved to Heal a podcast rather than a video channel. It's really quite simple and founded in experience.
 

Anything else of interest?

Why yes! For those of you that want a visual version of Moved to Heal, I have an idea I'm eager to try. Listen in to learn more 😉
 

Stay in the loop

I'll be announcing a visual offering for Moved to Heal both on the podcast and via my newsletter. Sign up to get updates when they land!

What’s in this episode of moved to heal?

In this week's movement episode, I'm building on last week's sequence of moves by adding a breathing component. The sequence is taken from yoga and is sometimes called a "sunbreath". And this week, I'm inviting you to move in time with your breathing.
 

Moves + breathing cues that make up the Sunbreath

From standing (or seated!), the sunbreath sequence consists of

  • lifting the arms overhead (while breathing in)
  • folding the body forward "all the way down" (while breathing out)
  • lifting the body up half way to vertical (while breathing in)
  • folding the body forward "all the way down" (while breathing out)
  • lifting the body up all the way to vertical and lift the arms overhead (while breathing in)
  • lowering the arms down (while breathing out)

You can take or leave the breathing cues! And any of the moves, as always 🙂
 

Integration suggestion

After listening to the episode, perhaps take a moment to check in: did you notice something that you want to remember or follow up on? If yes, maybe jot it down in a notebook or record a voice memo to help you remember.

 

You can give it a try when you're ready
