upright: five standing movements

Sometimes, it can be good to just observe

Does all that we’re aware of in ourselves need to have meaning? Do we need to explain all that we can sense in our bodies? I don't think so. Being aware of being, of sensing without explaining --or being aware with curiosity and patience-- can be a gift, especially when it's a practice you choose.

Listen to "upright: 5 movements standing"


The 5 movements offered in the upright episode

  • Standing, side bend
  • Warrior 1, arms hug or cross
  • Standing, balance (tree)
  • Warrior 2, lift + lower arms
  • Standing, backbend

I guide you through this practice step by step, and you can choose to skip or stay with any area you like.

Integration suggestion

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.
