As we head into 2021, I'm trying a new normal for the Moved to Heal episodes. I'll offer episodes with 5 forms (seats, stances, shapes) each with an action choice (such as lifting the arms, rounding the spine, etc).
You'll see the same forms and actions over and over, in different combinations and sequences each week. I plan to offer short, medium, and long episodes over the course of each month.
This week's episode is a preview of what a short "5 forms with actions" practice. I hope it's useful, and of course, I welcome any feedback.
What’s in this episode of moved to heal?
5 forms, mostly all seated, each with an option to add an action. In some moments, I invite you to notice your breathing. In other, I ask you to notice whether there's any feeling in your back.
The moves offered
- Cross-leg seat with cat / cow
- Straight-leg seat with neutral arms
- Kneeling seat with hugging arms
- Kneeling lunge
- Kneeling fold (child’s)
I guide you through this practice step by step, and you can choose to skip or stay with any area you like.
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
Be moving, be true, be you
