wandering road: ten seated + standing movements

What's in a body?

Body can be “a body,” a specimen of the human body. The kind of body we study through many lenses (science, medicine, sociology, history, art, and more). Body can also be your body. Unique, experiencing, being.

If you'd like, you can ask yourself to notice which body --or bodies-- you bring into your practice today.
Listen to "wandering road: 10 movements seated + standing"


The 10 movements offered in the "wandering road" episode

  • Cross-leg seat, cat/cow
  • Forward-leg seat, lift arms
  • Forward-leg seat, lean back
  • Downdog, peddle feet
  • Low lunge, lift + lower back knee
  • Side lunge, lift arms forward + lower down
  • Side lunge, arm reach
  • Low lunge, twist
  • Downdog, breathe
  • Cross-leg seat, fold forward

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


What makes this trauma informed?

Choices, invitations, noticing, open-ended experiments. Read more about those here.


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.

Be moving, be true, be you
