Mon, Jun 22, 2020 ~ Dancing Water Practice ~ Nourishing Movement: Plumb Aligned

The world is shifting. My world. Your world. All of it. As it always is, it’s unclear what will stay and what will burn away, what will crumble and what will stand. As I it shifts, I want to move with it and make space for what needs to happen. I am, then, shifting my online teaching schedule from seven classes a week to four: Nourishing Movement on Mondays, Dharma Dance or All Out All You Movement Parties on Fridays, and Restorative Yoga on Wednesdays and Sundays (Minimal Props and Nesting Props, respectively). For my own health and energy and for the space to allow change to happen, let’s keep moving together while we are apart.

A plumb bob is what carpenters use to measure vertical alignment. It’s a beautiful, old-fashioned tool that uses a weight, a string and gravity. By observing when the weight and the string are out of alignment, the builder can adjust and make choices that bring her structure into plumb.

We can do the same in our bodies, our minds and our hearts. Notice the sensation of alignment and out-of-alignment, whether it’s shoulders and head, hips and feet, or values and choices. In today’s Nourishing Movement practice, we’ll anchor attention on the spine and how it is like the string on a plumb bob, an indicator of the alignment of the whole body. Please find the video here.
