Questions and suggestions

A1    What effect does the exercise “Straightening up out of the thighs” have on you?

  • Do you have a stronger perception of your body when staying anchored in your thighs in becoming upright, than in being anchored in your heart? Do your feelings also change?
  • Do you perceive that, in becoming upright, the legs are also streamed through from above and become more connected to the ground?
  • What effect does the exercise have on your breathing during and after the exercise?
  • How does arriving in the feet or “waking up” influence one’s perception of the whole body or how it feels enveloped?

B1    How did you best manage to fill the O gesture with warmth and mindfulness?

   What corresponds to your experience?

  • It helps me to bring the hands to the heart to start and allow its force to support the gesture.
  • After creating the O it helps to give a little more tension into the hands and arms.
  • When I perceive myself fully that is enough to allow the O to be filled.
  • I concentrate on the forces that come up from below and fill the O.
  • I pay attention that my feet are well rooted below, this also gives my middle fullness.
  • I don’t become especially active but rather become inwardly still and wait. Then a fullness comes about by itself. I become quite calm in doing the O and feel myself fulfilled and car

D1    What helps you to perform the O - form in space?

  • Do you manage to remain particularly active in the hand and arm and to allow the legs to follow? Can you simultaneously be conscious in the legs and arms?
  • Could you try to particularly engage and allow your lower system to work in leading the O? How does that feel? Strange? Or comfortable and strengthening?
  • Does leading the O pull you out of yourself or are you even more strongly anchored in yourself? What helps you not to lose yourself?
  • What helps you to retain the size in the returning half-circle so that you quite naturally return to your starting point?
  • What is the difference when you let go between the two half circles or not? Are both ways equally successful?

E1    How did you experience the O in front, below, above and behind you?

  • Could you experience the space outside of the gesture? Did you notice how important it is to experience yourself and your body for this effect to come about?
  • What was the easiest? In front, below, above or behind? Which impressed you the most?
  • Do you agree that all these versions of O fit the O and express something of its quality?
  • What role does the surrounding space play for you? Or is the inner dimension more important?

Eurythmy exercises for joining in.

In the eurythmy exercises for O (O pronounced as in All) we connect ourselves with our inner sources of warmth and light. We make inner spaces, build relationship, and create harmony in our body. The point is to connect ourselves fully with that which we do and so awaken our inner potential for change

The O Join in Exercises are the fourth sequence of exercises in the series Vowels in Action (ViA). In this course you find 15 different exercises developed out of the manifold possibilities of O.

In each of the three sequences we show you variations of an exercise with different aspects and effects. In order to allow you to practice for longer we have combined the single sequences to two half-length sequences and to one mammoth sequence. This allows you to practice intensively and soon enjoy the positive effects on your wellbeing.
