This was so interesting, I really can see many clients benefiting from the awareness we create by visualizing the spine throughout the movements. Well presented, i will be using this for sure. Many thanks.
Thank you Christine Lynn. Visualization, proprioception and movement are all so important for our clients.  Glad to hear you see how to easily use it for yourself in your work!

I love the slow pace of this class to really pay attention and precision what happens. I also like the feedback of the dowel with each exercise and the difference it makes when one holds the dowel with the pinky or the thumb. I will check out where I can get dowels in my town and will try to implement it. I also like the way how it teaches proper standing up - I think this is very functional and important for many clients. Thanks so much!

This was amazing - the first session I've done after two weeks off with a chest infection. This really helped me reconnect and reactivate all those tired muscles. The delivery is great, very relaxed but focussed. Loved it, thank you.
