Loving this series!  Your cueing for standing and raising  foot behind you was especially helpful for me on my wobbly side.  It was the first  time I was able to gain some stability while standing on that leg.  Thank you.  I’m not able to do the walk through with knees elevated because of joint (shoulder and ankle) issues.  Any alternative exercise suggestions or should I just keep trying?  I’m going to concentrate on this series over the next few weeks especially to see what gains I can make in my flexibility and strength.  Thanks so much for filming this series!
Thank you so much, everyone! Lori, if the walk-through itself is too strenuous for your shoulders, just holding the lift of the knees from the table top position will be an excellent placeholder and strengthener. Otherwise, perhaps elevating your hands by doubling up on blocks or using a Pilates "long box" on either side may give you the space you need to be successful. Let me know how you get on, and thanks for watching!
Fabulous class! Love your progressions. Keep coming back!
