curious: hands and knees forms moving on breath on moved to heal

Explore with courage

I suspect most of us are naturally curious. Sometimes curiosity feels good and exciting, and sometimes it raises questions and takes courage. You might notice your experience of being curious in movement leans more towards safe or scary, pleasant or unpleasant. And if the latter, more unpleasant or scary, perhaps look for the moments when you do feel safe and good in your curiosity (whether in movement or elsewhere in life), and let that be a guide to what's possible.

Listen to "curious: moving on breath, hands and knees forms"


What’s in the "curious" episode of moved to heal?

I offer hands and knees forms and invite you to practice movement in sync with your breathing. If you want to see any of the forms, you can search by title in my yoga forms library.


The forms + movements offered in this episode

  • up cat / down cat (aka cat/cow)
  • alternating birddog (hands and knees balance)
  • hands and knees moving twist
  • up cat / downdog
  • up cat / child's
  • reclining or seated rest

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.
