*NEW Candlelit Recovery Flow – Non Striving, just Being!

Welcome to your Recovery Flow!

Most of what we do in life, we are doing with a purpose or goal in mind. So today we are “non-doing” and focusing on seeing and accepting things as they are in the present moment. 

Today, we will try not to attach at all to a particular outcome, such as relaxing or clearing the mind or becoming a better person, striving towards these goals actually interferes with the ability to accept what is here too,.

This can be very restorative because when you think about we always have so many agendas, we are always on the way to reaching a goal, to actually be in a place where we practice non striving, non doing and allowing things be as they are is very nurturing,

Again, not easy to do because we have so many things that we feel we ‘should’ be doing.

Give yourself some time to practice non striving/non doing, realizing that whatever is already here in this moment is good enough, you don’t need to fix anything, escape from anything or make anything happen.

Embrace the moment you are in, hold onto your awareness, and do your best to not react or transition into goal-setting mode!

I’ve recorded this again without music as our tastes are all different. But I do have a nice relaxing playlist on spotify should you wish to use it. The link is below:

Mindfulness & Mobility. March 12th. Includes Body Gratitude!

This class could be a great one for dance teachers to use at the end of a dance class from time to time.. For dancers to tune into their body and practice gratitude for all it does for us! How often do we take time out to appreciate our body? – It’s important 😉

Hamstring Flexibility/Mobility/Strength Sequence. *Shorter class*

You’re here because you have assessed your hamstrings and you know that they are tight. Please do this routine 3-5x a week and keep re-assessing and checking in on your progress. If you’re not sure whether your hamstrings are tight, please head to the assessment area of the on demand library.

 

Pre practice encouragement, body gratitude, breathe, mobility, goals & intentions!

In this class I encourage body gratitude, acceptance, we do the cyclic breath for calm and focus as well as a full body mobility sequence, then we set a goal and intention for the day or dance class. A nice little boost I hope! It can be easy to get swept up in the challenges that dance can bring, this class might help you to shift perspective a little and bring you back to a place of kindness towards yourself and gratitude. I hope the poem shared, my thoughts and insights as well as the movement piece are good to you. As always, I am interested in your thoughts and feedback 🙂

Yoga blocks might come in handy and a yoga mat. Feel free to spend more time in any particular movement given if you wish.

Enjoy it!

Morning mobility flow – Ties in nicely with front splits work ;)

A request from some of you guys was to create some short energising morning movement/mobility sequences. In this one we start with a shake, the breath of joy and we move through a sequence that will help to enhance front splits and extensions. I hope you enjoy. I recorded this on New Year’s eve, so Happy New Year all!
