In light of our new mobility month kicking off this April 2023 I decided to record for you a new dynamic warm up routine. Teachers feel free to use it in your classes! And dancers can use it for pre comp prep and really however you wish. Listen to the cues given – and if you’ve any questions at all, ask away! You’ll need a mini band or theraband for the glute activations.
What does that mean I hear you say initially.. Watch the video and lmk what you think. I will be recording my clouds int he sky meditation for you soon. I find it super helpful when it comes to managing ‘stressful
One of the greatest things I have done for myself and the way I show up in this world is to practice pausing before reacting. We all go through times of challenge and adversity and as dancers we have our fair share of disappointments..
Honestly, I used to be quite reactive, which I now realise just isn’t very helpful.
This week has come with a couple of setbacks for me and the difference is that now I have the ability to pause, create some space, see things from a different perspective and then respond in a much calmer, more peaceful way. It’s truly a beautiful thing to be able to cultivate – Like anything worth while, it takes practice..
We go through a lot as humans/dancers.. In spite of it all we deserve kindness! Let’s cultivate it x
Day 5.. Start practicing now x

Today we focus our attention on the ‘dorsi flexors’ of the ankle.. The muscles that draw our toes towards our shin.. Why is this important – have a listen x
