Disrupt: Shake, Rattle, and Roll

I’ve been writing about the shortening days in a way that might make one believe I am all about gentleness in the face of the transitioning light. Well yes, but I am also not advocating for hibernation.

The fact is we can’t hibernate, there is work to be done. So sometimes you need to shake things up to keep the body and voice limber. So on this grey, Boston morning I invite you to an explosion of movement.

Get some fun music going. Then move your body in ways that are unfamiliar. Shake out your limbs. Jump around. And then, change your relationship to gravity. Do a forward bend. Do a handstand (if your body does that). Get on the ground and stretch out. Bonus points, for singing along during the exercise.

All of these are simply ideas for you to explore in your physical context. The point is to keep the body using air so that your voice has a solid basis for the work of connection.
