Dance to This: The White Stripes

Betty, who is 75 years old and spent 25 years of her life as a nun, absolutely adores this song. The second it starts, she is gone. I can no longer give her instruction because she just dissolves into the music.

Which, you know, is the whole point of this practice -- to get to the point where you are so totally free that you just do your own thing, listen to your own body, respond from your gut.

I use this song for warming up the feet and connecting to the earth through the lower legs.

Think of yourself as the percussion.

And just go.
