get comfy to let go of tension - a mini moves practice

New on Moved to Heal!

We're all at different stages of our healing journey, so I decided to begin including some "regular" mov/ed yoga practices in addition to the trauma-sensitive yoga ones on the podcast.

The new "Mini Moves" episodes follow the same style of teaching I use in my general population classes that I teach online and in local studios. From move to move, there's a little bit more direction (let's do this, then this) than in TSY, though still with the invitation to make it your own and do as you choose.

Future episodes that offer practices in the trauma-sensitive yoga style will be labeled "TSY practice".

I invite you to give a quick listen to both kinds without expectation or judgment and see which feels better to you.


Listen to "Mini Moves - Getting Comfy to Let Go of Tension"


What’s in the Mini Moves episode of Moved to Heal?

I invite you to get comfortable in these forms + movements and let go of a little unwanted tension -- or whatever they yield for you!

  • Reclining, bringing attention to breathing
  • Hip bridge, roll up, roll down
  • Bicycles
  • Roll up to sit
  • Arm reach and release

Some of the forms may be pictured in my yoga forms library.

While you listen to the episode, you can do or not do any of the practices, and in whatever manner or degree you choose.

Be moving, be true, be you
