Always working within the limits and comforts of your own body. It doesn’t need to look or feel like anything in particular, and doesn’t need to look like how I do it. Make everything in the class work for your body and space. There is no wrong way to do this as long as you're listening to your body and remaining safe
1. Two deep breaths in a neutral position to start, in through the nose and out through the mouth. Continue using the breath at a natural pace to find softness and easefulness in the body. A sense of comfort. With every out breath softening your posture, allowing various body parts to submit to gravity. Every in breath reinflates you.
2. This begins to get larger but following the same rules, always easeful and soft, perhaps beginning to use the limbs as well. Although working off of a screen, find 3-Dimensionality in your body. Work along all the planes. Every body part can move or twist in any direction.
3. Finding circles in the pelvis to instigate movement in the rest of the body . At times easeful, but then occasionally creating a thickness and tension in the pelvis, contrasting the release we were finding earlier. Instigating body part then shifts to the ribcage, and then to the head. Can always swap between any of these as well.
4. Already working with circles, tension and release/softness. Every now and again allow a moment of specific articulation to come out, whether through the hands, feet, elbows, or any of the areas we’ve been working with. Another way to contrast what we’ve already been working with. Going deeper into whatever you’re working with, and increasing energy in a way that feels right for your body.
