June 19, 2017

The language of Mind Body Dancer is dynamic. “Action words stimulate change in your students,” says yoga teacher TaraMarie Perri. “Try ‘pour,’ ‘push’ and ‘experience’ –not ‘feel’ or ‘do or don’t’ Those words don’t mean anything.” Here, Perri and dancer Maggie Ronan use the active MBD language to demonstrate yoga poses used as a warm-up in many dance classes. While practicing, be sure to inhale and exhale in steady cycles.
