exploring all sides: ten belly down + seated movements

sides and parts

Where do you experience different sides of yourself? Does it depend on location, company, or activity? Do different practices and movements help you be aware of all the ways you're you?

Sometimes, it can be challenging to just be ourselves when who we are can seem to change with our environment. Of course, I think that's just being human. We come like this, and we become like this: complex and multi-dimensional.

The movements offered in the "exploring all sides" episode

  • Lying on belly or back, leg lift
