An exercise in movement and breath, movement and sound to help anchor the body to the earth while opening it to the world.
This exercise has its origins in the Japanese practice of Shintaido. The addition of sounds was developed by Chloë Goodchild in her practice of The Naked Voice.
This series of chained movements connects us first to the earth, our origin, before opening us to the sky and the world, to our dreams, our intentions, our ability to visualise and manifest and our ability to let go of everything before returning to the earth.
The effect of the cycle is to mobilise the body in many directions, to connect the movement of the breath to the movement of the body, to feel the whole body and to warm up the voice.
Tips for practising this cycle: repeat the cycle several times so that the movements become more and more fluid and fulfilled. Explore how the timbre of the voice changes throughout the cycle. Use this cycle at the beginning of the day as a warm-up or before an activity that requires concentration and presence.
