Side to side wiggling and shifting is natural to the baby learning locomotion on her belly on the ground and is an important member of the pre-crawling, creeping group of movements. As adults, we may neglect sideways undulations or forget them entirely.
Let’s revivify our fishy/snaky/reptilian past! We’ll sidewind, side bend and stretch all sides of the sides to discover and explore our essential 3-dimensionality. Your spine, your breathing, your energy and state of mind will thank you.

Curving, continuous movements, the hallmark of Qi Gong, are rare in yoga and introducing circles, figure of 8s and spirals – mentally and literally – warms and lubricates all the systems of the body creating an overflow of pure enjoyment and assures us there’s always another chance, another beginning.
We’ll circulate breath in pranayama practice, relaxation and meditation; wobble, slosh, swish and roll during floor work; and dig deeply into the earth to experience the wavelike rebound while standing and inverting. Discover yoga practice as a circle game of free movement, cumulative learning, awareness and delight.

Let’s explore the experience of standing and walking with an emphasis on stretching the feet, lubricating the knees, circulating the legs within their hip joints, releasing the sit bones and tailbone in the direction of the inner heels, and encouraging the wave-like elongation of the spine. We’ll spring, bounce, stamp, grow roots, balance and practise all things vertical including meditative walking, sitting and even inversions with awareness, confidence and joy!
Together, connected through our shared yoga practice, we’ll “step in the direction of life, which is the present moment.” (Thich Nhat Hanh)
