Let go and move
I just love watching this baby move!
I'm including it here, as a visual aid for your Somatics practice.
I encourage students to move their whole bodies, not isolate parts, when we are doing pandiculations. Well, really, let your whole body move with anything you do in life. Just like Baby Ella is doing in the video.
If I cue someone to move their heads, or a shoulder, or a hip, or a foot, whatever, I ask them to notice what else moves along with it.
If one part of your body is moving how does it wag the rest of the body?
Ella has no cultural expectations, or rules, or isolating parts of her body. She just feels like dancing, and does it. Looks fun, eh?!
Try it out for yourself. Can you wiggle and jiggle your whole body, moving your shoulders and hips, and spine and head?
Really, the freer you are to move, the freer you are. Period.
I'd love to hear what you think . . . throw a comment below. :-)
