    Welcome movers! This week's moved to heal practice is part one in a seven-part series of reclining forms. The theme is welcoming movement.

You can choose to engage with any episode on its own or the full series in any order.

    Forms and movements offered in this Reclining Series
    - Leg fold in
    - Leg lift and fold
    - Arm lifts
    - Knees side to side
    - Side-lying
    - Closing

    You can participate in this practice by listening and/or moving. You're welcome to do or not do any of the practices, and in whatever manner or degree you choose.

    Be moving, be healing, be you!

    #8 on accepting myself just as I am (from the standing series)

    #8 on accepting myself just as I am (from the standing series)

    Welcome movers! For this week's moved to heal, I'm not offering a practice. Instead, I am sharing seven thoughts on "accepting myself just as I am" in daily life. These were shared one by one in each of the seven standing series practices, and this episode brings them all together in one place.

    Feel free to tune in or pass over as suits you!

    Be moving, be healing, be you!
