Come join me for some rolling around on the floor movement studies!
Take it to the floor! *said in Timbaland voice*
We will start sliding around then transition into some more dynamic twists targeting release in the outer hips, groins and shoulders(but keeping it chill and reclined).
You can take this one at any time of day - this tends to be my end of practice ritual - i hope it´s useful for you whenever you need it!
You will need: a blanket or duvet if you´re going extra luxe!
Ideally a hard floor or pad it up if you have carpet to avoid chaffes!
Remember, it´s your practice, let this be intuitive and divine because you deserve to feel good - always.
Let me know how you go!

We´re often encouraged to start from a centred and grounded place that feels supportive. Steady.
...But when is anything ever steady? Really?
I have a self care box at home containing the things that uplift me when i need to feel better. It includes my trusty eye pillow, some oils, words, art tools and so on. I find it useful to have these items always at the ready - a “ritual in a box” if you like, that really helps me practice self care on the regular.
Read on for my tips to create your own self care box!
Thank goodness for our wrists! They, along with our hands, support us in so many ways during the day, so let´s give them a little bit of love!
Feel the need to unwind and get back to your centre?
Take a break in your day to reconnect, realign and reenergise with some twists!
Those days where we think about doing something. Yet it doesn’t quite happen. On those days, i remind myself and others to tread gently.
Here´s a sequence i use when i want to slow things down and practice being a little more tender and gentle.
The possible has been tried and failed. Now it’s time to try the impossible.— Sun Ra
The time has come. I have to jump and, ahem, “just do it”.
As the trees shed their leaves and go back into the earth, we are also afforded the opportunity to draw in, retreat, reflect and reconnect by releasing the stuff we don´t need. Because with endings also come new beginnings. We are part of a bigger cycle.
Many of us have a tendency to be hard on ourselves. We learn from a young age how to be self critical. harsh. pushing. punishing. forcing. harder. faster.
Can we re-educate ourselves to become more tender?
