Gravity (Sara Bareilles) to invite the taste of touch, Heal (Tom Odell) to inspire the permission of our lazy, Sunday morning roll, and Departure (Daughter) to inspire your world of standing and spinning into the unknown.
The EA Physical Practice playlist is setup to be used three songs at a time, offering new flavors and colors to each of your explorations.
This week I’ve added Elysium (Lostboy, Slashtaq) to our EA Imagination Practice playlist.
The playlist begins with Perpetual Mobile (Penguin Cafe Orchestra) to ignite our Michael Chekhov work, welcome our mischievous Elysium Artist, and stir the feel of forward.
Songs are added weekly, inspiring new levels of permission and play as you cross the threshold into your playground of possibility.
