Moving as editing.
Weekly foundation practices help you get back into your body so you can source the wisdom and support that’s available to you there. They are designed to be easy to action and accessible to all bodies.
What way of moving through the world do you need to edit?
Practice: Moving As Editing
For 5 minutes a day, I want you to edit how you move through the world. Editing might involve removing something or it might just mean changing your movements slightly.
You can edit your posture so you take up space in a way that feels right for you.
You can edit how you move forward through your day. This might include the pace of your moving, how you hold the rest of your body as you move, and/or how you move around—or don’t move around—other bodies.
You can edit smaller movements too. Things like how you touch your own body, how you chew your food, and/or how you let yourself unwind at the end of the day.
Whatever comes up for you when you think of editing how you move through your day is valid and worth exploring.
Before starting this practice, take a deep inhale. Feel your body in space. Connect to the ground or the surface that’s beneath you. Feel the power that exists in your body, even when it’s not moving. Exhale and begin.
