Most people find that it's more comfortable to stand when doing the movements.
You can do them in a seated position, and for some people that's really the best way to get started. Body puzzles can be done by people with limited mobility who are seated in a wheelchair, at a desk, or even in bed. You'll probably know what's best for you. If you have some physical concerns it's always best to ask your doctor.
Start by listening and watching. The clicks that you hear and the movement of the animated shapes introduce the rhythm and pattern of each movement. The goal is to accurately imitate the movement of the person on the screen.
If you get tired, you can rest your arms (or shake them out) when the screen goes dark between each movement.
A fun way to learn new moves is to have individuals pair up. It may be necessary to partner users who have learned a specific move with those who are struggling. Face each other and touch hands (if comfortable). The person who knows the move will guide the one who is still learning.
If you are having trouble with the bilateral movements (the left and right hands are doing different moves), begin by moving only the focus hand (the hand with the more difficult pattern) before trying to coordinate both hands.
When you have mastered a movement, follow the path of each hand with your eyes, instead of watching the screen. Finally, close your eyes as you perform the movements, then open them to see if you’re keeping time with the movement on the screen.
