Emily Goes (Nut)Bush !!

Posted by Jackie on 23-Jul-2014

Microsoft Word - Emily goes Nutbush.docxTeaching Tina Turner’s dance moves to schoolchildren was not in Emily Brissenden’s brief when she was recently deployed for a short-time in Papua New Guinea for work – but that’s exactly what she did!

While working in Papua New Guinea, Emily was invited to Ndrolou Primary School to teach ‘Aussie’ dance. For two hours she endeavoured to teach the basics of physie to the children including ballet, gymnastics, contemporary and disco. The final dance included teachers and parents dancing together to Tina Turner’s Nutbush City Limits.

‘I love teaching dance to all children and, just before I left Australia, I packed the BjP preschool music CD in my bag just in case” Emily said. ‘I wanted to share my love for physie and I got the chance to do just that. And it was no surprise that the children loved The Milkshake dance the most.’

Physie Tip of the Week

Posted by Jackie on 18-Jul-2014

17 18In yoga they call it “downward dog” but in Physie we call it the “Inverted V”.  Whatever you call it, it’s an amazing stretch that will, if done correctly, stretch your calves, hamstrings, Achilles tendons and shoulders, as well as increase upper body strength.

Take the weight on your hands (shoulder width apart) and the balls of your feet (with feet in parallel – ie feet touching).  Rock backwards trying to push your heels down into the floor and pushing your shoulders towards your knees.  Keep your neck long and your pelvis rotated back (towards the ceiling).

If you can’t get your heels down, try pushing them down one at a time, allowing the opposite knee to bend. “Walk the dog” like this for a while then have another go at pushing both heels down together. Go slow and breathe!
