:: movement #1 ::

Yes! We're kicking-off with one of my favourite movements. One that changed my relationship with and understanding of my body for good. I call it the earthquake. Since I've come to known this exercise I've been doing it (almost) every day. It's amazing. And the long-term results are even more amazing..

 

After a few weeks of doing this movement regularly, you'll feel incredibly light. Free of baggage.

There is less 'old stuff' stuck in your physical body that's weighing you down and influencing your life. Old, unprocessed emotions & energies. You don't need to carry that around, love.

 

Also, I've personally experienced that the longer you do the earthquake, as in trúly implementing it in your life, the more sensitive you (& your body) will become.

 

Say hello to more intense pleasure and sensation.

By doing the earthquake you are, quite literally, shaking 'petrified' energies to the surface (like lava bubbling up) and ask your body to let go and heal. Re-group.

 

So you take care of your energy(body) this way, all that is rigid or blocking your flow, you get rid of. If you ask me, it's necessary upkeep. Giving your body the opportunity to release anything it's been (unnecessary) holding onto. In our society, we tend to hold in a lót, so doing this daily is BLISS. 

 

This movement is the últimate release.

:: How to Experience it ::

Implement this movement in your life at a set time every day this week.

Maybe when you've just woken up, before preparing your breakfast or maybe before stepping into bed at night. It doesn't matter when, but take a specific time of the day.

 

Set an alarm now or stick a post-it where you can see it, so you'll remember to do the earthquake.

And if you feel like doing it multiple times a day, go for it!

 

I recommend this because a new movement only 'sticks' when it's done regularly. Creating a new pathway in your body by doing it regularly, so that it'll be added to your body's vocabulary. This goes for every exercise btw. 

 

When you do the exercise only once you won't (truly) reap the benefits and you won't remember it in your system. Just saying, be consistent if you want to experience the 'results' I talked about. 

 

After a while your body will (subconsciously) remember the movement as an option, and you'll start to feel when it's time for some earthquakes. For some release. Your body will ásk for it.

 

So when it's 'saved' in your system and vocabulary, you can go at it intuitively and do it whenever.

But still, I'm all for daily upkeep. 

So. Are you ready?

#1 - Stand up, unlock your knees & close your eyes. 

#2 - Start bouncing your whole body softly from the knees. Feel into where your body wants to be 'shaken' and move around a bit while doing the bouncing. If not, know that simply doing the bouncing is enough too. Energy will start to come loose after a while.

Oh, and a good tip! When you start to feel like you're 'done' with it, stick with it for another minute. Usually the moment when we get uncomfortable and want to quit, is the moment before a 'breakthrough'. Keep moving (through it).

:: Important Pointers ::

Movement :: When doing this standing up, remember to unlock your knees and slowly start bouncing from there. Let your entire body relax and close your eyes to not be distracted, to go inwards. Experiment with the pace and depth of your 'bounce' from the knees and try to find places in your body that feel a little stiff or stuck and move those. Oh, and if you bend over a little, you can 'quake' specific places in your back, specific vertebras.

 

If you're laying down you simply kick your feet up and down, to start the vibration. 

I talk about doing this after a yoga session, but you can do this in bed too! Before sleeping for example, shaking loose all that you've held during the day. Rocking your body gently.

Duration :: Try it for at least 5 minutes a day. Some days you'll want to 'quake' for 20 minutes, and on other days 5 min feels like enough. Depending on how deep & thorough you want to let loose and what you've been through that day or the day before. How much you need to 'digest'.

 

Depth :: Know that the longer you shake, deeper energies start to come loose. Things that've been stored years ago. Like a heavy stain in a shirt needing a good couple of rinses & soaks to truly be gone. And the beauty is, you don't have to understand any of it (and please don't try to), you just have to experience it. Move through it. Your body knows things your mind can't comprehend. Go with it. ;)

And, don't forget to sigh! LOUDLY. Sighing and sounding are perfect ways to release.

Open your mouth a little, let your jaw relax
