Most advanced version, the knees are stacked, so one he is right on top of the other. The ankles are right on top of the other. You're really on your right hip.

So that's your tightest position. It's very compact. See how much you can be right on top. So there's a huge stretch on the right side and quite a compression on the left. Take this on way up to the ceiling. Other other harms. Now pull up with it. Try and get the shoulder almost to your ear so you open up the side ribs, lift up in the waist and start bending.

Very good. Now stretch the legs out to the side and swing them around for snake twist. So in this position, your top leg is going to be in front of the bottom leg. This hand is quite close to your hips, a more modified version. Start from here, but let's see if you can go places. Hand here, turn the hand out.

I signed up a couple of weeks ago because I thought this website looked like a great idea, and it is! And this class was AWESOME. I loved the challenge and the transitions were were so good, simple things like the move from rolling like a ball into single leg stretch were brilliant. Four stars.
