Ok folks, I have just a musing for you this week. I'd like you to pick a previous lesson and be the move vs do it. You could even pick just one movement, like flower or the side bend.
Are you scratching your head wondering what the heck am I talking about? Our world requires that we spend a large amount of our daily lives working towards “doing stuff” and “getting things done.”
The flip side of doing-doing, go-go-go, is just being in the moment. Being mode and doing mode are both useful in different ways and at different times. But if things are stuck in your life, maybe a shift to a being mode could help you. This is your lesson this week. To apply being to your somatics practice and just notice what you notice.
Here are some qualities of Doing vs Being.
Qualities of Doing
So as you explore a lesson or movement today, I'd like you to be in it, not do it.
As you roll an arm or let a knee turn out, what do you sense along the path of your limb?
What happens in your body as you move the limb?
Do you sense anything far away from the "focus" area?
It's like walking across America vs taking the Concord. If you walk it you will sense/notice a lot more. If you are just flying by you will miss everything expect for a distant view from a tiny window 30K feet away. Pretty disconnected, right?
I think this lesson will be a fun exploration for us all. Myself included. :-)
Let me know what you discover! Enjoy!
Most of the routines are 45-60 minutes long.

Search for key words...
Use command+F to search for key words like running, back, pelvis, arch and flatten.
That said, please remember Somatics is not about addressing one muscle at a time or certain areas of the body. Humans function as a whole system, so no matter what the focus of a class, everyone can benefit.
