being brave by being patient
When it comes to movement, patience largely comes from being ok with what you're experiencing -- which means it doesn't feel like what I normally think of as "being patient," requiring oodles of discipline. Of course, sometimes to find that sense of being ok with what is, you have to move through discomfort, awkwardness, and doubt. And letting those move through you takes not only patience and discipline (or the knowledge that something good will come of an activity you may not feel like doing), but also courage.
Listen to "patience: still seated forms"
What’s in the "patience" episode of moved to heal?
I offer seated forms and invite you to practice stillness, knowing movement is always an option. 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
- seated forward fold
- seated side bend
- seated arm hug (eagle arms)
- seated twist,
- seated or reclining 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.
