Friday What I’m Loving

Friday What is rocking my world…

It is a winter wonderland here in Portland now…gorgeous, and everything shuts down when we get lot of snow…but I”m on my way to the Oregon Humane Society to walk the dogs  for the morning before heading off to celebrate my man’s 60th birthday at the coast…and to think I was just in 80 degree sunny weather in New Zealand just a few days ago…jeez…

I am so intrigued with Amy Cuddy’s work, which I was just turned onto the other day. And here is why.

In my dance classes, I am always telling the dancers to take up space, to move forward with intention from the heart, to dance from the soul, and to really mean it when they dance.  This is part of the power of Tribal Bellydance experience— to super define the moves so as a leader you can be followed, to move quickly and creatively with our improvisational format and language, and to share with each other the magical spark and energy of dancing together.  I always say that we are supposed to be here, on this planet, to be seen and heard, to live each moment, and to walk with compassion on mother earth. Either in our warmups or cool downs, I often use this exercise where we reach out, standing tall, and stretch our arms and legs way out like a five pointed star, and then curl up on ourselves  with bended knees, hugging ourselves over our thighs, and then standing tall again to reach out and feel big and empowered!  And then I see this video talk with Amy Cuddy…rock on sister!

so here you have it! What do you think? Pretty cool, eh?
