Elizabeth this was a festival of thoracic rotation, as you would say. Fantastic ideas to play with here. I am thinking that people who are hyper mobile would benefit from the work more proximal for joint congruity. If that is the case, would you have the springs be slightly heavier to enable that process? Loving it all!
Thank you SIlke and Lynn, really appreciate your comments. Yes, Lynn, I agree about the use of heavier springs. Once the client becomes familiar with the precise alignment, increase the spring resistance. This helps keep the femur head in the hip socket, challenges the lateral pelvic stabilizers and requires All the abdominal slings to activate. Take care to align the thoracic spine, scapula, elbows and wrists as they contribute to whole-body stability.
I love how you always incorporate rotation in such a creative way that makes me love it instead of not love it so much! Thanks for the great side work on the chair. Excellent class Elizabeth as always

Wow, that is defintely one class you have to DO before you comment...so much going on that you would never imagine by just watching. I don't have handles on my chair but I rigged up something with my cadillac to get a similar effect. After the class I felt like I unknotted parts that have been stuck for years; great great class.
