    Hip Rolls et al.

    Hip Rolls et al.

    If you find that you prefer to slightly round your lower back in order to feel less pain, more strength, and greater ease then you may find this episode particularly enjoyable and beneficial.  That is not to say that if you prefer to either not round &/or slightly arch your lower back that you should avoid it- just realize that the cues used regarding lower back placement may not be directed towards you specifically.  That is the joy/challenge of group exercise: not everyone needs/benefits from the same thing.  Learning about what works for you is a foundation to long term health and well being.

    Walking Lunges 101

    Walking Lunges 101

    Walking Lunges are one of the most versatile vertical exercises you can practice.  They only require a little bit of space (like a hallway etc.) and have a huge impact on overall health.  Being able to practice a walking pattern efficiently is a cornerstone of long term health and well being.  By adding three sets of 10 lunges a few times a week, you will see and feel immediate results.

    Eighth Core Workout!

    Eighth Core Workout!

    Eighth Core Workout! -Not be confused with “stop listening to your body”. Please think first of how you feel, then move with awareness and sensitivity.

    We combine everything into a synchronous flowing pattern. I encourage you to be familiar with the concepts introduced in prior episodes before diving into this session. If you have trained with me for a while, this episode may feel like more familiar territory in terms of pace, sequencing, and endurance.

    Breathing Squat

    Breathing Squat

    Using your breathe to measure out your movement is an incredibly meditative practice.  In this episode I challenge you to keep moving for the full length of both the inhale and the exhale.  Be aware that your legs will want to return to the starting position before the arms shoulders because they have a shorter distance to travel.  So when you are inhaling and bending into your Squat be sure that you don't hold the motion and continue to inhale.  If you are inhaling you are still moving into the depth of the squat.  The same is true of the exhale.  If you are still exhaling you should have not stopped moving.  I repeat: Specifically the exhale you may find yourself returning to the start position prior to the completion of the full exhale.  You may still be moving your arms/shoulders but your legs will have already returned to standing tall with  no motion.

    Corset: Moving Stillness

    Corset: Moving Stillness

    I have a client with a fused lower spine. This means that, in terms of exercise, we focus on keeping her spine as still as logical while moving her limbs.  Because the spine is fused means that the immobile parts force  the parts of her spine that are directly above and below the fused section to compensate/move much more than is desirable/safe over time.  We found great success in focusing on helping her feel the front, back, middle, and sides of her torso contract in order to help keep her spine supported.
