March 19, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 250:
Find an object that is roughly the size of your head. Your task is to explore different ways of carrying this object by surcharging yourself with as many ways as possible. Consider different parts of your body that can be used to carry the object, such as your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, head, or even your feet.

March 18, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 249:
Start by moving slowly and quietly. Try to make your movements as silent as possible. Gradually increase your speed, but make sure you don't lose the quality of your silent movements. Pay attention to your body and how it moves through space. Can you feel the subtle shifts in your weight and balance as you move faster? Take your time and be mindful of each movement.

March 17, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 248:
Experiment with different movements and transitions that create a sense of being almost out of balance. Once you have a few movements you like, start to string them together into a dance sequence. Play with the tempo and dynamics to create a sense of tension and release in the dance.

March 16, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 247:
Begin by laying on the ground with your arms and legs extended, and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths and start to visualize the bones in your body as if they were made of wood drifting on the water. Each bone is separate from the others, moving independently as they float on the surface. Spend ten minutes in this visualization, allowing your muscles to relax as much as possible.
After ten minutes, slowly move your limbs, but maintain the water-wood quality in your movements. Imagine you are still floating on the water, with each bone moving smoothly and independently. As you progress, keep your muscles relaxed and your breath steady. Continue for another ten minutes.

March 15, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 246:

"Walking with weight on the heels and weight in front: What does it do for your presence?"

March 14, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 245:
Explore the discomfort of your environment by finding the most challenging spot to sit in your house. Once you have identified it, take a seat and begin to playfully engage with all the discomforts you encounter. Experiment with your posture and movements, shifting and adjusting to find new ways to adapt to the discomforts. Embrace the challenge of the situation and allow yourself to be curious about the sensations that arise.

March 13, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 244:
Imagine that your eyes have transformed into skin. Visualize your newly evolved skin-eyes, sensing the environment around you through touch and texture, rather than relying on sight. Move your head slowly from side to side, feeling the subtle changes in the air and the surface beneath you. Notice how the textures and sensations differ from what you would typically see. With each movement, allow yourself to fully immerse in this alternate mode of perception, and explore the world through your new skin-eyes.

March 12, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 243:
Choose one object from your house that you can hold comfortably. Feel the weight and texture of the object in your hand. Take a few deep breaths, and bring your attention to the center of your body, just below the navel. Begin to move with the object in your hand. You can move in any way that feels natural - walking, spinning, swaying, etc.
As you move, try to maintain your focus on the center of your body. Notice how the weight and texture of the object affects your movement. Rather than seeing the object as something separate from your body, try to integrate it into your movement. Feel how the object becomes an extension of your body. Spend a few minutes exploring movement with this object. Try moving in different directions, at different speeds, and with different levels of intensity. When you feel ready, set the object down and choose a different one to explore. Repeat steps 2-7 with each object you choose. Remember to stay connected to the center of your body throughout the exercise.

March 11, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 242:
Choose a few movements that challenge your balance. As you move through each exercise, focus on the coordination between your movements and your nervous system. Notice how your body adapts and responds to each movement and how your nervous system helps you to maintain balance and control.

March 10, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 241:
Begin initiating movements using your elbows and knees, and continue for as long as desired.

March 9, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 240:
Find an audiobook, radio show, or podcast and listen to it for 8 minutes. While listening, keep a pen and paper handy and write down all the words that catch your attention or that you are gravitated towards. These could be words that stand out to you for any reason, whether they are repeated often, have a unique sound, or have a personal connection for you. Look through the list of words you wrote down and choose three you feel drawn to. For each of the three words, write a short memory associated with that word. Use these memories to create a short dance piece or video performance. Consider how you can incorporate movement and gesture to evoke the memories you have associated with each word. Think about the mood and tone of the memories, as well as any physical details that stand out to you.

March 8, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 240:
Begin by taking a few deep breaths and focusing your attention on your body and your emotions. Think about situations or experiences that make you feel irritated. Start to move in a way that reflects the feeling of irritation, using sharp, angular movements that convey tension and frustration. For example, you might start with a series of jerky arm movements as if you are swatting away an annoyance. Let your movements build in intensity, allowing your body to express the full range of your irritation. Incorporate stomping, pacing, or other movements that convey a sense of restlessness or agitation.

March 7, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 239:
Begin by gathering a variety of objects from around your room that have different textures and shapes. These could include a tennis ball, a rolling pin, a scarf, a brush, a wooden spoon, or any other object that you can comfortably roll, press or rub against your feet. Set up a comfortable and safe space where you can move and access the objects without tripping or slipping. Start by warming up your feet with some basic stretching exercises. Wiggle your toes, flex and point your feet, and rotate your ankles to get your feet ready for the massage. Choose one object and use it to massage your feet. Roll it under your arches, press it against your heels, or rub it along the soles of your feet. Experiment with different pressures and movements to see what feels best for you. As you massage your feet, notice how the texture and shape of the object affects the sensations in your feet. Pay attention to any areas that feel particularly tight or sore, and focus on those spots for a few extra moments. After a few minutes, switch to a different object and continue massaging your feet. You can use a different object for each foot, or alternate between objects on the same foot. As you move from object to object, try to incorporate some simple movements or gestures with your feet. For example, you could point your toes while rolling a ball under your arches, or lift your heels while rubbing a brush along the soles of your feet. Play with the different textures and shapes of the objects to create a short dance piece or improvisation. You could experiment with rolling or tossing the objects, balancing them on different parts of your feet, or using them to create rhythms or patterns.

March 6, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 238:
Stand in a neutral position with your feet hip-width apart, arms resting by your sides.Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, focusing on the sensation of your spine. Imagine that your spine has a sense of touch, like your fingertips, and can feel every movement you make. Begin to move your spine in a slow, gentle, and fluid manner, as if it were exploring its surroundings. Allow your spine to move freely and without tension, focusing on the sensations of each vertebrae. Experiment with different movements, such as bending forward, arching backward, twisting to the left and right, and rolling from side to side.

March 5, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 237:
Find a comfortable place where you can sit or stand without any distractions. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to relax your body. Begin to listen to the sounds in your environment without trying to identify them. Just listen to the quality, pitch, rhythm, and intensity of the sounds. Pay attention to how each sound affects your body. Notice if you feel any physical sensations or changes in your body in response to each sound. Do you feel it more in a specific area of your body, like your pelvis or head? Continue to listen for 10-15 minutes or until you feel satisfied with your exploration.

March 4, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 236:
Start by focusing on the sensations and abilities of your hands. What do you feel when you move them? What are some of the things that you can do with them, such as gestures, grips, or manipulations? Using these sensations and abilities as inspiration, start to experiment with movements of your feet that mimic or complement those of your hands. For example, if your hands are making flowing, circular movements, try to create similar movements with your feet.

March 3, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 235:
Take a moment to observe the sky and pay attention to the quality of its movement and the feelings it evokes within you. Then, you are instructed to transfer that quality and feeling into the movements of your feet while walking, dancing or running. The goal is to imbue your feet with the same sense of grace and fluidity you observed in the sky.

March 2, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 234:
Begin in a completely dark space. Remove your shoes so that you are in bare feet. Allow your eyes to adjust to the darkness. Experiment with different types of eye movements. You might try focusing on a single point and moving your eyes around it or shifting your gaze from one object to another. As you move, try to feel the ground beneath your feet. Allow your feet to connect with the surface and feel the textures and temperatures. Play with different qualities of movement. You might move quickly and fluidly or slowly and with more deliberate intention. Use your body to create different shapes and formations. You might crouch down low, stretch upwards, or twist your torso. Continue to move and explore the space for several minutes. When you are ready, start to slow down your movements and come to a stop. Take a few deep breaths and allow yourself to arrive fully in the present moment. Reflect on your experience. How did the darkness and bare feet affect your movement? How did the movement of your eyes influence your overall experience?

March 1, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 233:
Choose a location where you can feel the cold weather, such as a park, the forest, or a balcony. Stand in the space and take a few deep breaths, feeling the temperature of the air on your skin. Start moving your body slowly and intuitively, exploring how the cold weather and touch of the environment affects your movements. Pay attention to how your skin reacts to the cold, and incorporate these sensations into your movement. Can you use shivering or goosebumps as a way to create a movement quality? Finally, think about how the environment and your skin interact with each other, and use this awareness to inform your movements.

February 28, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 232:
Look at your room and objects in your room as a soundscape. Make a piece of music with your room and the objects.

February 27, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 231:
Choose two objects in your home that are very different from each other. Perhaps one is heavy and the other light or there is a difference in size, or one makes a sound and the other doesn't. Use these objects to explain something of today's news to a friend, family member or yourself.

February 26, 365 Movement Prompts, Day 230:
