Day 1: Touching

45 min - Practice


What would it be like to move from the curiosity and desire of the skin? In Day 1, Suniti leads a class to explore touch and being touched internally and externally. We are asked various inspiring questions as we move through familiar asana poses feeling how our bodies touch ourselves and the space around us, making curious contact with the body through brushing and patting, and bouncing to feel the contents of the body moving. As homework, Suniti asks us to go outside after this practice and pick up and feel things with the eyes closed.

Hi Suniti,
Thank so much for this wonderful exploration of touch! It was most touching indeed! The phrase "effortless effort" came into my head- the bounces are such a great shifter. Your voice and pace are perfect -encouraging spaciousness and ease. What a great start to the series- looking forward to completing homework assignment and joining you in the continuing exploration.
Have a beautiful day!

This was a dreamy sequence for me. Your use of imagery and some mind-blowing concepts (feel your skin from the inside/from the blood side) I was able to go way inwards and feel the familiar postures in a whole new way. I loved this 🙏🏻❤️

Oh Suniti, this was just lovely. Thank you for always showing me how to be curious in my own body. You help me move in ways I didn't know I could. I did most of this practice with my eyes closed and it was heavenly. I also loved your little giggles. I wish I could be giving you one of my rocks like I used to before class.  So much gratitude :)
