Have you ever watched kids at the playground? They are not running, climbing, sliding and swinging from monkey bars to “get their workout in.” It is a form of play for them. They enjoy it! Smiles adorn their cute little faces as they move their bodies.
Can you remember how to playfully move? Is it possible to be so completely present with your body and the sensations of stretching and strengthening that joy naturally arises? Can you smile as you move?
On the mat experiment with some balancing poses-they easily invoke a spirit of play. Then, see if you can playfully move throughout your day. Don’t move to check it off your to do list; move because it’s fun!
