Ajna: Listen to your inner instruction. We are all the answers.
Ajna is sometimes translated as “perceive” or “beyond wisdom” and is the word used for the energy center of intuition ~ the Third Eye Chakra (located between the eyebrows). Part of the reason we practice together is to strengthen our own “wisdom muscles” so that we can access our skill whenever we need it. In that spirit, I offer a short guide to creating a simple movement practice of your own. You can find it here.
I hope you will create a playlist of 5-6 songs that you love (perhaps from your youth) but if you’d like you can use this e sample playlist that I delight in moving to:
Ajna ~ Self-Guided Practice ~ Sat, Mar 28 2020
Rama Dasa 5:11 daVinci
Artichoke Funk 5:56 Zeb
Make Me Believe 5:23 Above & Beyond, Daniel Kandi
Shining Light 4:32 Annie Lennox
Summer Morning Rain 3:52 Tierra Negra and Muriel Anderson
A Sound Meditation 5:30 Benjamin Iobst
Whatever you choose, make it music that sings to your soul.
I continue to work on all aspects of offering online classes (new music! better camera possibilities! a cordless mic! 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.

• 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 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 email@example.com with ideas and suggestions for what would be of the most help and support in these days
