Hi, I'm Claire Dunphy Hamani and today we're doing a low intermediate math class with special attention to how to work on a yoga mat when you don't really have a mat with straps on it....

I completed a 9 mile hike yesterday so the emphasis on flexion in the feet was particularly appreciated. One legged teasers are a nice "gateway" to the two legged version and build confidence. Thank you.

In the CRISS CROSS you cued that the closer you pull in the incoming knee to your chest the more you get into your abdominals, i.e., the abdominals are working more efficiently. If I understood this correctly(?), how is that explained Anatomically?
As a devotee, may I suggest, that this was an excellent piece of mat work Instruction. It is always preferable to see the Instructor doing the work!
Thank you Clare Dunphy.

Superb! Will be doing this class many more times...
Thanks for taking a minute to post a comment! About the Criss Cross and pulling the knee in closer to get more into the lower abs. Try it so you can feel it. You might also try giving resistance at the front of the knee and press the knee into your hand to feel what happens. Its an old physical therapy trick to get the deep abdominals muscles to fire. It's also good for the people who are quad dominant.

Kathleen, I am glad to hear you enjoyed the challenge and the fact that you feel long in your body is the best feeling ever! I hope you come back and do it again and again and again.
