choose to be inspired 111015
This was the first week with the new routine, Inspired. Launching a new routine is always a little edgy and exciting…for me, anyway. I have a sense of aliveness and possibility that is almost effervescent. Thanks to all who came out to dance and be inspired.

Below are all the playlists for the week. Did you know that you can listen to all the playlists for free on Spotify https://www.spotify.com/us/ ? Sign up for free, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen! No matter where you are, we can listen and dance together!

TEDx is tomorrow! TEDx CHARLOTTESVILLE ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2015. I’m excited for a whole day of inspiring talks about ideas worth spreading. The show is sold out but fear not! You can live stream the whole day via the TEDx Charlottesville live stream!  It’s really an incredible line-up of amazing speakers and worth checking out any time during the day (the show runs from 9am to 530pm). The two speakers I’m coaching, Elliott Woods and Leslie Blackhall, go on at approximately 2:40 and 3:05, respectively. Get inspired, tune in!

As always, please let me know if you have questions or how I can help more.

Dance on. Shine on.

fingers around fingerAfter a week of dancing fingers and toes, I can feel the effects far beyond those distal digits! I hope you can, too.  In addition to the week’s playlists, a few videos:

My favorite toe song this week was Michael Franks’ Popsicle Toes

And of course my favorite finger song was The Police, Wrapped Around Your Finger. I just don’t think I’ll ever get tired of that third verse: “I will turn your face to alabaster. When you find your servant is your master.”

And check out the details of hand movements in Indian classical dance, as well as a demonstration. Amazing what the human body can do.

And also information about the mudras I mentioned this week:
the grounding Apana Mudra
the energizing Prana Mudra
– and Garuda Mudra for opening intuition.

Have fun with those 20 digits, everybody!
As always, let me know how I can help more.
Love,
Susan
