I have found that I really enjoy creating new videos! It's a a very satisfying process. There is a portion of my brain always actively looking for material for videos. And this means that I am even more committed to developing my style of movement to be able to offer strong, intelligent, mobile and blissful bodies.
So, if I’m practicing on my own and find a nice flow I immediately write it down so I can share it with you. I test it on myself and my clients in Berlin to make sure the magic has been preserved. And then eventually it will make its way into a video. The Accumulation Flow videos one and two are a great example of this.
Sometimes, I have a conversation with a client about something that I know others are also curious about, like the pelvic floor. If I feel like there is an opportunity to create a video like in the Pelvic Floor Exploration - a short yet deep dive into a topic that can dramatically improve our home practice - just this extra awareness to have and integrate into our movement.
Or, if I’m teaching a class and something interesting and spontaneous happens that creates a significant change, I also write it down so I can figure out what happened and then ask myself if it would translate to a video. This was my process in the No Nonsense Flow.
But I find this question of 'Will it translate'? fascinating. Because obviously there is a difference between doing a video online and attending a class. So far my findings are that we are all a little bit less focused or perhaps less patient with ourselves when practicing at home than in a live class. This means the videos need to have super clear directions and keep your attention! I find it’s important to build up a little bit faster than in a group class because we are all anxious to start feeling something. So the videos need to pack more of a punch in a shorter amount of time. And they still need to be mindful, effective, safe, challenging and inspiring! And they need to be broad enough that one can imagine repeating the video without wanting to throw their tennis ball at the screen. What a wonderful challenge!
So this renewed commitment to learn and question myself about what I think is important to me about movement and what I hope to offer is incredibly inspiring. I’m always looking for ways to understand the body more fully and to organize it in a effective and simple way. I feel so grateful to be able to share what I’ve discovered and I’m confident that the delivery will only continue to improve!
It’s important to me that this website continues to be a tool to help us move more. I want this to be a place where you can say - 'I want to move and I have 20 minutes of time', or 'I want to move and I need to calm down', or 'I want to move and….' no matter how much time you have or what you feel like you need, I want there to be options for you. To make it that much easier to get moving. I encourage you to look at any resistance you find to doing any particular video. Sometimes it is the kind of video we don’t want to do that we actually need.
And finally, I have yet to unpack the data I have on the videos. It’s coming up on the to-do list and I’m looking forward to learning more what you the user want and need. Then I can align my ideas and plans even more with your wishes to deliver videos that fit your needs to inspire, strengthen, mobilize and ground.
Let’s keep moving together!
