Lesson 2 - Rejuvenation
A. Do the sequence of stretching exercises in Part 2.
B. Choose a piece of music that makes you feel refreshed. Listen to it for a few moments to feel the mood and then join in with your free-form dance movements.
Go with the flow; stretch out with big arm circles and moving in circles, too, if you don't get dizzy.
C. When you are ready, just sit down in place, or on a cushion, or on a chair. Close your eyes, fold your hands in your lap, and begin your reflection time. Begin the reflection time with 20 counts of even in and out breaths.
Do not retain your breath. Continue on for a few minutes of reflection on positive thoughts about yourself and others and for world peace.
End your session by taking a breath in and out, standing and stretching. Enjoy the feeling of rejuvenation and renewal.
Dance meditation is poetry in motion and when you are done your session you'll find you are invigorated for the rest of the day.
