What shall I pay attention to?
With which videos shall I begin?
You would like to learn eurythmy and use our videos?
Wonderful! The whole field of inner movement possibilities is available to you through eurythmy.
Eurythmy takes place in the centre of your body. I draw in the arms by contracting the pelvic area. I send the arms out by relaxing the neck. The arms follow when I contract the body. And even when I let the arms get light and rise up behind, I do this with the body intelligence.
The videos are there to show you how to activate your inner forces and what you could experience by doing so. Look at the videos in a quiet moment and then try to repeat what you have seen from memory. Can you repeat the exercises independently out of your own body intelligence and experience the effects?
Time, space and clothing
Exercising for a small amount of time every day is the best. Start off with a short amount of time which you can later expand to 20 to 30 minutes. Try to arrange for an undisturbed practice time.
Support your practice by arranging your practice space. The less distractions the better. The more peace and calm in your surroundings the better you will be able to focus on your inner perception and lead your movements and experiences from there.
Arrange everything in such a manner that it helps you to perceive yourself in a calm and loving manner and so that you feel uplifted and protected.
Choose clothing that feels comfortable and which doesn’t hinder you.
Eyes open or closed?
If you haven’t done eurythmy before you may wish to close your eyes. Then you are usually wil be able to experience the inner movements more clearly.
But don’t forget that eurythmy represents a whole which contains your inner world and the world around you. That is why we in general keep the eyes open with a relaxed, unfocussed gaze whilst doing eurythmy. We simultaneously gaze into ourselves and into the world!
Refrain from using a mirror to see whether you do everything “correctly”. That’s not the point. Work with your inner perception and recreate yourself anew from within. You have everything you need in yourself!
With which videos shall I start?
Start with the Basic exercises. With these you learn many of the rudiments.
Then progress to the Rod exercises. With these you learn to address different zones in your being and allow the harmonising cosmic forces to work on you. That does the body good. It remains healthy, vital and alive. There are six basic exercises and the rod exercises with forms.
Then proceed to the participative videos of the Vowels in Action series. In this course you obtain almost all of the videos contained in The vowels as supporting material. So you may practice and learn at the same time. With each series you do something else for your inner wellbeing and health.
The movements for the consonants B, H, K, L, M, P, R, S, T, W may be found in the course Eurythmy on skis. Here you even learn how they may be applied practically using the example of skiing (in German only).
If you are less interested in eurythmy, but you want to get a better grip on your everyday life reducing stress and exhaustion, then our ABSR course Action-Based Stress Release is just right for you. In the course you will give lectures on the various forms of nervous phenomena, get to practice everyday exercises and amplify the effect of eurythmy. In this course you will find everything you need for it.
Have fun and enjoy the discoveries!
