Some resources for home practice…
Below are some simple, easy to follow Awareness through Movement lessons that can be used as a daily check-in to restore ease of breathing, posture and movement…
All you need is a mat or blanket to lie on, and a folded blanket/towel to support your head when lying on your back, or on side.
The movements described are not intended as ‘exercise’…. the aim is to develop new body awareness and connections that improve your habitual ways of co-ordinating yourself.
No position or movement should feel uncomfortable or painful: If you can’t find a way to begin without discomfort or holding breath, please stop.
In general: Can you allow yourself to explore the movements, keeping them small and going slowly, without straining, so that you have time to sense more fully…. (do you need to hold breath / tense your shoulders before you move…?)
