We Came To Dance

Everything we need is already inside us, just waiting to be moved – We Came To Dance.

We began with rhythm. From the beating of our mother’s heart to the first kick in our mother’s womb.  We were born to move.  ‘We Came To Dance’ combines this rhythm that we all share, with the rhythm of music, dance and an epic piece of spoken word that unravels over the course of two and a half minutes.

Prepare to be pulled in and carried along on a journey of expression, smiling and inspired to move.  Beware: you may feel compelled to get your groove on after watching this video.

Take 5 Deep Breaths

1. Feel your body.

2. Relax your shoulders.

3. Choose a word that makes you feel peaceful, such as om, peace, or love.

4. Inhale slowly while mentally saying the word you chose. Pause before starting the exhalation.

5. Exhale slowly while mentally saying 1 with the first breath. Exhale saying 2 with the second breath, up to 5 or more.

Feel Your Body

Relax your body, and just be aware of how your body feels. Without changing anything, notice what you are feeling, and where you are feeling things in your body.  If your body wants to adjust a little, let it. Be curious how it feels as your body relaxes. (Resist any temptation to analyze or think.)
