Tuesday, March 31, 2020 ~ Dancing Water Daily ~ Nourishing Movement: Resilience

Today’s Nourishing Movement practice continues our exploration of the sensation of resilience. Our very bodies are designed to be resilient: balancing tough and flexible, tenacious and mobile, strong and fluid. The more we embody these sensations in our movement, the more access we have to them in other aspects of our lives.

Case in point: my mic battery died at about the 33 minute mark which is PERFECT for practicing resilience It gives all of us a chance to trust our own strength and suppleness and to move with our own wisdom (PLUS it gives me a chance to face my perfectionism head-on). AND below the playlist are some notes to refer to for those last songs! Thank you for your patience, friends as I figure all this out. Find the video here.

NOTES on the songs when the mic stops:
Kamogawa Dreaming ~ Move through the joints of the body feeling their resilience – strength and mobility: ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists, spine
Lazy Boy Blues ~ Alternate between the resilience of movement on feet and balance
Streamline ~ Movement on the floor both pushing away with strength and softening into support
John Stockton Slow Drag ~ Keep moving, listening to any body parts that need attention, ending in stillness and stopping.
