What a fabulous class! The cues from the clavicles were really helpful. I love the ball work at the beginning, and the saw on the Reformer is amazing. The tutorial on feet to the pelvis was very helpful in understanding the cues in this class. This work is really beautiful - I’m so grateful to have the chance to participate.

I saw your class was up and I knew I had to make time to watch and do it. I hope one day to be the quality teacher that you are, giving so much information, yet not just constant babble! Loved the class, The Saw variation felt yummy! Thanks Tom McCook !

Tom, as always I really appreciate the anatomy put into movement so we can move with greater fluidity and balance. For me this is great tool, although being hypermobile means I have to find ways to not get so much space. SI joint force and form closure are an absolute which means I have to forego all lumbar flexion. It's been a long work in progress after 10 years of doing pilates along with old neck issues. I would love to see your take on actually creating whole body support for us "squids".
