Wet season in Bali means spending more time undercover, seeking out hidden gems to work from and making sure there is ample playtime ♂️
Deep in editing, creating and launch mode as my first offering for 2018 comes into fruition on the new moon (17/01). This FREE online course is a tiny taste of the Movement journey we go on while on retreat in Bali.
Movement As Medicine is a 7 day course dedicated to liberating your movement journey through weight transference, somatic awareness, moving from form into formlessness, self enquiry, stepping out of your comfort zone, journaling and so much MORE!
We trace the map of the energetic body working with a different theme each day which includes a 12 - 15 minute guided movement practice, inspired by the vayus, Prana Vinyasa yoga, 5 rhythms, dance movement therapy, ecstatic dance, yoga trance dance and breath awareness.

So EXCITED to share this with YOU!
ANATOMY TIME This last week, I’ve been focusing on breathing into my back body. How the heck do you do that? And why would you want to do that?
One look at this model (from #bodyworldsdecoded exhibit @thetechmuseum) and you’ll want to breathe to the back body. Look at how your lungs wrap around back there. When you direct your breath to the back body, you’re not only expanding your lung capacity to it’s potential but also mobilizing your rib cage in the back side which effects your spinal flexibility as well as strength.
Best way to feel this is to lay down on the ground and start breathing. Notice how it’s easy to breathe to the front body, the front ribs and belly will expand easily. Try to direct breath to your back body and use the pressure of the floor against your upper back to provide you with feedback on how well you’re moving the breath back there.
Sped up for IG....if you do this, move slowly and mindfully and BREATHE
🧘♀️ These poses gently open the heart, the front of the chest and shoulders.
1st pose - using a bolster, rolled blanket or even your yoga mat, lay with it supporting your spine. Sit on the floor and lay back over the bolster/roll. After some time, begin to move your arms with your breath - inhale and slide them up the floor, exhale down to your sides.
2nd pose - Start on your side with your arms out in front of you. Begin to make clockwise circles with your top arm. Do 5-10 linking your movement with your breath (inhale in the first half of the circle and exhale in the second), then switch to counter-clockwise direction before switching sides. Take a mini savasana between sides to notice your body.
3rd pose - Lay on your back with your ankles crossed and your feet tucked up by your buttocks. To do this, draw your knees to your chest, reach around your legs to hold the tops of your feet like handlebars of a bicycle. Pull your feet towards your buttocks as you lower your crossed ankles to the floor. This pose will gently arch your back and open your chest. Breathe for 5-10 deep breaths before switching the cross of your legs.
