Final Step..Poetry In Motion.

Today..we learn Poetry In Motion…
Standing in an open space..put radio on a music channel you like.start with cat stretches..finding the sweet spot..moving to stretch dance moves of stretch and hold..move to new stretch and hold as you see fit. Add small rocking to each sweet spot as you feel the desire to… then add arm moves..from ballet to slow rhythmic workout moves..
A key is to hear the music..let the sound touch you..let the music move you..as if you were a leaf and music is the wind. Stay slower than usual..really feel the musics effect on your body and psyche..
As you do this..choose the movements that fit you this day , right now..
Start with two to three songs..
The final objective is to move to an hour a day of moving as you wish..as you feel..from stretching only..to rocking only.. to arm movements only..to a full hour of poetry in motion.
Peace..I am glad you are here…Kandy

Part Eight..Stretch Dance Moves

Today, try this…
Do a great cat stretch..
Feel how good that feels..do it again n notice there is a sweet spot that feels so good..
Now stand and start to stretch whatever feels like it needs to stretch..find the sweet spot n hold..when tired..go into another stretch..and hold..then again and then again.
Do this for five minutes in your spare time.
Do this for 15 minutes to get you going in the mornings or do it for 30 to 60 minutes as a real workout.
If you aren’t sitting still..you are exercising.
Peace..I am glad you are here..Kandy

Part Seven..House As Workout

Today..notice places around the house that can be an anchor to trigger you to exercise spontaneously throughout the day.. for example.kitchen counter..turn your back ..put hands on counter…do assisted squats..this works out your upper arms..buttocks..and thighs.. Another place..a wall or door is good to do easy wall pushups..out of bath or shower bend and stretch..body is limber from heat..
When you look in mirror..if you don’t like a part of your body..do 20 seconds of isotonics for that body part.
In essence use your house to condition your movements and strength building throughout the day. Peace…I am glad you are here ..kandy.

Part Six..Poetry In Motion

Today is easy..in spare moments or while watching tv..listening to audio or music..just stand and do arm movements..
Ballet moves..tai chi moves..Dancin with the Stars moves…any move that feels good..
Do it for 5..10..or 30minutes at a time..
Simple way to fit in a fun mini work out..
Lean into it..peace..
I am glad you are here.

Part Three..Rocking And Movement

The next concept to know so you can do Poetry In Motion..is that just sitting you can be exercising.. at home in front of TV, at work at lunch break.. the level at work depends on your ability to have privacy.Any movement gets your blood flowing.. just stretching.. like a cat is a good start.. then stretch and hold.. soft twists and hold.. gentle rocking  at your stretching sweet spot.. moving to more rhythmic rocking.. which can be soothing to your psyche also.. remember your privacy level. Rocking is a little known form of  gentle exercise.. and you can do it on a couch, regular chair.. sitting on the floor…doesn’t have to have a rocking chair.. Your elderly relatives can  benefit from choosing to rock as they watch their shows..

Remember any kind of movement is a form of exercise.. think of how this is true.. which is better.. sitting still all day or rocking an hour a day?

Small movements like this done every day prep your mind and body to move more… heading to your own Poetry In Motion…

more to come tomorrow.. peace,, Kandy..I am glad you are here.
