028 – Physical Warm-up: Plating

  1. In a wide stance, imagine a plate is on the up-turned palm of your right hand. Explore the full range of movement you have whilst being careful not to let the ‘plate’ drop off your hand. 
  2. Your palm must always face the roof. In long circular movements, stretch out the front, to the back, to the side. Keep exploring how far you can stretch and contract this movement, exploring its full range whilst keeping your feet planted.
  3. Repeat with the plate on your left hand. 
  4. Combine the movements, as if you had a plate on each hand, and explore the relationship of the two sides, with the aim of creating fluid complementary circular movements.
