Wednesday, March 25, 2020 ~ Dancing Water Daily ~ Medicine of Now: Quarantine Questions

NOTE: I see that Facebook has blocked some of the music for copyright issues. First, I apologize for this and please know that from now on I will only post practices with copyright free music. Second, I list the playlist below and on the blog so you can create it for yourself and move with me! Thanks for hanging with me while I build the airplane while I’m flying it. xoxo

Today we continue to explore finding the medicine for this moment by contemplating the six Quarantine Questions that I found on the Engine2 Instagram feed:

Daily Quarantine Questions:
1. What am I grateful for today?
2. Who am I checking in on or connecting with today?
3. What expectations of “normal” am I letting go of today?
4. How am I getting outside today?
5. How am I moving my body today?
6. What beauty am I either creating, cultivating or inviting in today?

Today’s class continues our practice with the physical anchors of moving our heads, hearts, hands and heels. The intent is to use these touch points in the body to ground, relax and move in different ways. As always, it’s about paying attention: the investment in yourself. You can find it on the Focus Pocus Facebook Page.

I continue to work on all aspects of offering online classes (what do you think of the “street legal” music yesterday? the camera’s better! a cordless mic might work soon! Fingers crossed!). Another option for you might be NiaTV which is an online service offering 30 days free access to Nia TV’s at-home dance workouts, podcasts, meditations, and exclusive livestream.
• To register, click here and start your free trial today.
• Please note: you will need to cancel your Nia TV account within 30 days to avoid being charged after the 30-day trial period.

UPDATED PRACTICES THIS WEEK
In order to solve the music copyright issues on YouTube, to address the issues with internet streaming and the fact that not everybody is on Facebook (and in the interest of simplicity!), at 9am every day I will post a recorded practice. This will allow people to access classes whenever they can do them, whether they are Facebookers or not and will be less stressful for your teacher to produce.

You can help to increase the interactivity and assure me that you are out there! PLEASE DO:
• leave comments on the Facebook videos and share them with friends
• subscribe to my YouTube channel (it’s FREE, of course), like, comment and share them
• subscribe, comment and share these blog posts
• email me at sjmnia@gmail.com with ideas and suggestions for what would be of the most help and support in these days

Love

    Missed the music this morning, but I stuck it out. And then it came on for a while. And then it was gone. And then it was back….. And then Oh, well.

    • Yes, I’m so sorry, Lynn. I didn’t think Facebook would edit it (as they hadn’t so far) but they blocked some of the music for copyright issues. First, I apologize for this and please know that this will NOT happen again. All new practices will only use copyright free music. Second, I list the playlist on the Facebook video post and on the Focus Pocus blog so you can create it for yourself and move with me! Thanks for hanging with me while I build the airplane while I’m flying it. xoxo
