Superb. I learn so much from Brent and everytime something new to pick up - the extent of his knowledge and his attention to detail unveils itself again. Thank you PA.

Being Polestar trained myself, I really appreciated this session with Brent. It was lovely to hear his valuable insights and knowledge!
I had the chance to work with Brent in Miami when i was with Lolita 's San Miguel Master Program and was very interesting all this things he explain about how to work only with the part of the body we need. This video is perfect, remind me all the work he did with all my group. Thanks for every thing
Am so excited to FINALLY see him here. I been waiting on this one. I was hoping for a workshop as well ,is that coming too? Hope Hope..

That was a really informative class! I often have clients come in with low back pain, and these were some great exercises to include. I really liked the cue of letting the ribs fall back and up to curl up.
Hes amazing!! Rather like a magic genie!! I was so interested in him talking to you Kristi about your "snapping hip" since I have same thing in mine.
I know this was worked up for mechanical low back, would it work for Chronic pain or clients with slipped discs?

He is wonderful and working with such an experienced instructor who I am sure learned a whole lot more about her own body! We can all look the part but need to feel the part and what a STELLAR video to capture just that!! THANKS!

My back said ahhh just watching! I can only imagine how long your low back felt after softening the tension around the thorasic. Very useful for many populations (osteo, prenatal). I love the rotation elements without compression. Resembled Feldenkrais work with the bridging. Thanks Kristi and Brent!
Ooooo yes! As a PT i can testify that in a daily basis we use this kind of class a lot with injured clients! Great approach Brent! A little rehab but using functional movement, that's one of the many joys a client can experience by doing PIlates! ! Love it! :)
