A: Staying open – Getting grounded

8 Exercises. Duration 11 Minutes, Pause and possibly rest.

With the eurythmy exercises for A you learn to stay open, remain earthed and to create a stable nourishing base for yourself.

A - pronounced as in Answer

A1    The left and right columns

Perceive yourself in your centre between front and back, up and down, right and left.

Place your weight on the right side with a small step and perceive the carrying force of this column. Return to your centre and do the same on the left hand side.

Take a step forward and repeat the right and left column. Pay attention to the different experiences of the two columns.

B1    A with the legs

Perceive your middle. Take a step to the right and so far to the left that you return to the middle. Feel down from the heart, through the legs into the heels. Allow this to move your weight onto the heels to deepen your connection with the earth. Take a step forwards and repeat the exercise.

C1    A raying out

Lift your right and then your left arm, and ray through them so, that you have the impression you are raying into two different spaces. Experience how this affects your body.

D1    H with the shoulders

Roll your shoulders a couple of times. Contract a little in the front and release them with a slight backwards jerk, followed by gently streaming down from the shoulder-blades.

E1    H with the Arms

Put your hands in front of your collarbones. Use the whole body to send them high, and allow them to be carried down slowly in the back.

F1    A-H behind

Ray through the arms and feel the counter current from the periphery. Create an H with the shoulders that takes you a step backwards. Pay attention that the memory of the in-streaming A is still present in the down streaming H.
