Welcome to the Witchual Workout with Laura Tempest Zakroff – a ritually-inspired movement experience designed to get us moving a bit more on a daily basis. 5 days a week, we’ll have a different magical focus and build up our stamina and body exploration.
It’s Wednesday, so we’re looking to the divine again for our theme. Today’s inspiration is Asklepios (Asclepius) – Greek god of medicine, a son of Apollo. He is often depicted with a staff that has a serpent spiraling around it. We are going to use a very simple hand/arm sequence to tap into this healing energy, so you can do this seated – and there isn’t the usual warm-up. You can use what we go over today to combine it with larger movements, or just keep it simple.
