Week 1 Gateways into Movement

Practice in your own space guided by Areeradhana | Let's begin with the following 3 steps. Enjoy!

1. Setting Intention & Inquiry


  • To increase your body awareness
  • To move toward positive thinking and free movement expression
  • To develop ease and lightness
  • To release stress and strengthen your body

Write in your DANCEmandala Practice Journal.

  • How do you feel about your body?
  • Your intention for this dance
  • Feel free to share your inquiry with me (optional). Use the message form in the next section if you wish.
2. Learn about Practice's Tips
  • Create and prepare your personal space.
  • Rest for a few minute lying down on the floor, on a yoga mat if you have one.
  • Do a few simple stretches to warm up. Fold the mat away when you are ready to move.
  • Take long deep breath and be in silence for a couple of minutes with your eyes closed before starting the guided meditation.
  • Continue the guided meditation until the end with out ‘rewinding’ or ‘forwarding’.
  • However you find the music and the guidance, whether you like or dislike it, keep moving and breathing well.
  • I suggest that you keep following movement that feel good and right for your body.
  • Be with the your experience and emotion moment to moment.
3. Reflection & Journaling

After the dance, please write in your journal :

  • any insights arisen during the practice.
  • question or answer that may have come to you while you were dancing.
  • reflection on the overall experience of the dance for your record and for later contemplation.
  • reflection on your intention that you set before the meditation.
  • points of practice that you can take into your daily life.
  • It is up to you how much attention and energy you put into learning from your movement practice.
