So you are going to need a foam roller, you are going to need a magic circle and you're going to need a mat and just enjoy the moves you guys. Okay so we are going to start the foam roller is good. We all know for some release work so I thought basically just get into that first if you turn your rollers sideways for me. So we've kind of logged.

It's going to start nice and easy with the roller underneath your neck this time lying down. Okay? Yes. Place the roller underneath your head with your knees. Paints are, there is no tension on your back. And then you can just start any your head from right side to the left side and again from right to left and right to left and the next time turn your head to the right side hold.

Did they just find that tight little spots on the occipital and just turn your head in and around. Just try and release a little bit of the tension. Okay. And then reverse it the other way and come back to the same. To move the head over to the left side and circle the nose and reverse it the other way and bring your head back to the center. From here, just lift yourself up, flick the roller in underneath your shoulder blades, bringing the roller onto your thoracic area.

Interlace your hands behind your head please guys. And then just slowly allow your body to lean back and just open up that thoracic area. We're going to hold it here. Make sure it's not too uncomfortable. Adjust the Roil if you need to just hold if, yeah, we inhale and just relax the body. On the exhale. Your hands are supporting your head. We do that twice. More. Inhale, Andrew's. Breathe out. Every exhale, feel the body. Get a little bit heavier. One more inhale.

Okay, and exhale. Okay. Take a breath. Inhale this time. Then just move your body forward into flection, not worrying too much about connecting the abdominals. Rather just think of moving those facet joints of your spine in how to move back, keeping the hands to support the head and exhale to move forward, forward, forward, and you can move your spine.

Don't be scared to move here unless you feeling any discomfort in your, in your vertebrae, nose. Exhale or maybe in the neck or the shoulders. Adjust your body and we'll do two more guys. Inhale and excel. Oh my gosh, that already. Feel so much beta. One more inhale. The next one only come up halfway. Please exhale here.

Inhale, move your elbow and you'll chase back halfway up. This is kind of NACA awkward position, but press your feet into the floor, lift your hips up, elevate the pelvis and in row, that whole shoulder girdle out for me over the lats. Just nice and easy wasting.

It's like tenderizing a steak like roiling and good to Hmong. Good. And of course if you find the spot that needs a little bit more attention than you just hold it, they can either just breathe in that space or just gently rock forward and back to try and get rid of all that pulled up.

Now. You're going to just tilt your pelvis and roll back. If you need the support of the floor, place their hands down and they lower your head on your roller lock. Feel like one of those clients. Okay, so set up is everything. I'm just going to recap.

Make sure that you sit with your pelvis right to the front of the roller. Doesn't matter how tall or how short you are, your head will fit on either end of the roller. I can almost guarantee that to you. Okay, so the reach for your circle, extend your arms up towards your ceiling. And then from here we're going to just activate the arms by bending your elbows to the side. What I love about this exercise on the roller is that you can feel how your scaps and need to be safe and not pressed into the rollers, so widen your scapular so that you've got great shoulders stability, and then the only joint that's going to move is from the by SAPE.

So you're going to Xcel press into your circle.

And inhale, release. We do four more. Exhale, exhale in hell.

Okay. And it's held to your hip screaming at you and it's hell. One, four, five, four, four and threes and two and one parallel legs. And Bend your knees all the way back down. So if you're, are you okay? And remember guys, if the circle is distracting your good form, put the circle down to the side and keep moving.

And the same goes for the roller. If you feel the role is too taxing on your body, but the Rolla to the side and keep moving with the circle, take control. Okay. From, yeah, we are not finished with it. Make sure you engage your abdominals and then you're going to lift both leavers up off the floor with control. Sorry man. Circle back in between the ankles.

Exhale, extend. Draw the abs down, down, down, left your legs, lower your head and bend your knees. Take your hand, remove the circle. Did you see that? Brilliant. Okay, you guys roll off to the side closest to me on your math. Take a moment and enjoy that beautiful sensation of the open spine on the stable surfers. And then you're going to just move your circle.

Place it over your head for now. Okay. And breathe in. Just excel, relax. And again, inhale and exhale. Inhale your next exhale.

Move your pelvis up into a bridge or a pelvic call. And then move your roller in underneath your sacrum. Okay. You're going to just draw the leg closest to me up in towards your chase having a nice little hip flexor stretch today. Yeah.

So I'm going to come and give you a nice little stretch because I love you guys so much. Okay. You can stay [inaudible] always making sure that if you are giving tax or feedback to your clients that you have their permission and that you move from one joint, from the hip down towards the knee in this case. And you'll also feel if there is resistance with the client's body, if it's not okay for the, hmm. Yes, Sarah. That's how much I love you. Breathe in and I'm going to do the other side for you. XL, pull the stripe league up into your chase, then press the other leg down and away.

Yeah. First allow the joint just to release and straight. Inhale and exhale. Hmm. And another, so that I'd like to share is that if you are doing tactile feedback as to also, oops, look at people's expression on their faces.

So all the other tell you in a, if it's a happy moment or a not so happy moment. [inaudible] brilliant. And come back to draw both knees up until chase for a split second. Just allow that lumbar spine to stretch out. Just being the space. I mean, get your mind ready for the roll over with a circle in between the ankles.

And then we're going to also move into the Jackknife. And again, if the Jack Knife is not for you, you keep going with that roll over. So placing the circle in between your ankles and just while I'm here, always make sure that when you get onto the roller that you are doing it in a safe way. Okay. So like for me, can I do this? Getting into the role of from this side is not ideal. Um, just because it's so white bearing on your spine, moving over this unstable surface. So safer way is to have the circle, the roller between your heels and your, your grades lie Supine, going into your political place, the roller place, the pelvis, and that's much safer. All right, so one day up at the lake up circle in between your ankles. I first kind of do your spine twist supply and getting into those glutes. Place your hands on the outside of your Rola, not gripping please.

No fingernails in the foam. For those who have tactile issues. Oh, move your knees over towards me, over, over, over, and exhale back to your center and inhale over, rotates in the waist and excel back to the center and inhale over and excel. So the circle is day for your adductors to be active and exhale and inhale over. Can you stay here for me? Everyone do a little glute release as you just move your knees in and around and in and around and in and around. Let's reverse the direction.

[inaudible] two more and one up and over to the other side and circle and circle and circle. Reverse up and around. Oh, that's alright. The hamstring side again, and back to the same, to adjust your roller, if you need to place your hands on top of your roller, we're going to inhale, extend the legs to 90 degrees. And then on the Xcel. Can you lower your legs as far as your body allows you to go by maintaining your back Pelvic Lambo stability here in to 90 Xcel. Articulate that pelvis up and off your roller.
