January 16: Psalms

Psalms is a moving position.  This is the point at which we move from stretching (or in DoxaSoma we call this “Chara”) and into positions linked together for worship.  For Psalms, once you have  a feel for the position take a moment to put on some music that stirs you and see if you can move from the mechanics of the position into the reason we move in DoxaSoma, praise.

Begin the session with the stretching and warm up segments we’ve done this last 2 weeks.

Psalms Position:

From a standing position, step left leg back to anchored position (45 degrees to front foot), come up on ball of foot on rear leg, bend at front knee (not past toes.) Bring your  hands to front leg.  Your left hand and arm moves making a large circle toward the rear wall, circling to the back and around to face front again. The whole torso will move with to follow the movement of the arm and be sure to allow your back leg the opportunity to move as well so as not to twist at the knee. Left hand finishes the movement raise, in praise. Bring the right hand to the heart and then up to match the left.  Once finished on this side, step feet together and begin on the opposite leg.

“Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and

spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart

to the Lord.” – Ephesians 5:19
