Experience your body in a whole new way! This month, Dance Through Life by exploring playing with sound and savoring silence!

 

Play with Sound

  • Every day, consciously take some time to make noises
  • Use emotion to activate sound to strengthen your lungs and free spirit
  • Vary the tone to help keep your diaphragm and thoracic muscles strong and flexible
  • Sing in the shower
  • Express passion and pleasure while having sex
  • Sigh with enjoyment when you’re eating food
  • Scream with delight when good things happen to you
  • Allow small and big giggles to emerge freely
  • Laugh out loud
  • Let your expressive voice and Sound be heard
  • When you dance Nia, walk or run, use Sound to integrate breathing with movement

Then Savor the Silence

  • Invite Silence into every hour
  • The moment you feel tension, impatience or agitation, exhale longer and slip into Silence
  • Listen to and savor the spaces in between the sounds of life
