Playful Movement: Upper Body Focus
Permission To Play: Yoga Jenga!
A game for the mobile and curious who are looking to play! Two rules. To add or to remove. To resist or to surrender. A nice way to ease into bearing weight on your hands and gradually across any parts of your body. A full body game which can even be turned into a dynamic massage. Play to your heart’s content!
Permission To Play (2): Bolster Olympics
A simple game in which we stand on the bolster and perform the 'olympics'! This challenges your balance and ﬁres up your feet, in turn strengthening your legs particularly your ankles. A great workout for the hips, too. Find out what happens when the surface you stand on is not what you’re used to in this fun, playful movement class. You'll need a bolster.
Permission To Play (1): Shoulder's Tea-time
Mobilise and gently strengthen your shoulders creatively. This playful movement class is a must for those dealing with shoulder injuries or tight shoulders. If you have an injured or weak shoulder, or are just protecting your shoulder, but would like to retain strength in your shoulder, the shoulder's teacup is a fabulous exercise, inspired by qigong. Also a fantastic warm up for safely practising speciﬁc movements like wild thing and crowning your pigeon. You will need two blocks or books.
