Great advice for the neck/collarbone area. I teach a variety of women at the Y,, and I see a lot of "gripping" in the neck area! Will certainly use some of your cues! Thanks! Ginger

After viewing both Beginner Series workouts, I checked back in with my own neck position and noticed I get so much more benefit from the exercises when keeping my neck in absolute correct alignment. Even bridging gave me more of a low back stretch by correcting my neck position. It amazes me how every little detail makes such a huge difference in how I feel the exercises! Thank you so much for you insight once again!!

I love teaching a beginner series class. I love it when I am a beginner at anything for someone to explain and verbalize and demonstrate pieces that can make a whole. Y'all keep it up. Teaching beginners can be a challenge, but it is very rewarding. And, yes, Melissa, this dolphins can be distracting. Sometimes I have to stop and look myself. What natural beauty!!
