So today we're going to do obviously spine corrector with a lot of gadgets and props cause we going to use a stick and a ball and a magic circle and a lot of creative interpretation of the exercises. So if you, when you're sitting, you're this kind of the top of the barrel and I'd like you to bring your bottom, just a here forward and put your hands in the side. Do they have this like, um, section that you can grab, hold up and just sit up really straight and use it to pull your shoulders down. If you bend your elbows a little bit, you can kind of pull the shoulders down and lift the sternum way up. That's it. And then rock back of your sit bones just a tiny bit and close the rib cage and pull the stomach into not so far back. Wendy, with your chest, just a little bit of a rock. And then sit up straight again. Pull the shoulders down and lift the chest and then broaden between the shoulder blades as you go back. So you close the chest. When you look at me just a little bit. So you close here? Yes.
And the shoulders are still over the head. Sit bones. Little bit more back, Tim [inaudible]. And then sit up straight and roll back and broaden your elbow sideways. That's better. Wendy. Sit up straight, wrong, tall through the crown of the head and roll back. Pull the stomach in and sit up straight and roll back. Pulling the stomach in a little bit.
Squeeze the thighs together and sit up straight and roll back just a little bit and come back up again. Sitting up nice and straight. Take your magic circle in front of you. Have your knees together, your feet together. And now just squeeze a circle and lift your chest with the elbows lifted a little bit more, Megan and relax and squeeze. So Debbie, bend your elbows more and lift your chest. Shoulders down, and release and squeeze. Every time you squeeze the chest lifts and squeeze. Belly goes in and up. And squeeze in.
Lift and squeeze and lift and squeeze and lift. Very good. Place the magic circle on the outside of your knees. So just above the knees and get the feet apart to the about hip width apart and just your bottom if you need to again, hold onto the side of the uh, barrel and just to lift up. So you're literally pulling up. The elbows are going out a little tiny bit so you hold side body feels long and then push the knees wide and release and push the knees wide all the way up to your bottom. You want to feel the side of the hips working and press and widen and get taller and press and widen and get taller and press and widen and get taller.
Broaden the shoulders, press and lift, press and lift, press and two more times. Press and lift and last one. Press lift and hold this position. Now feel the tailbone long. Pull the stomach in, lift up the ribs and bring the arms in front of you. Very Long. Arms, shoulders down, and little circles here. Circle the arm, feeling the movement in the shoulders. Very gentle movement.
Keep the chest lifting, reverses circle, circle, circle. Keep squeezing those ties wide so the outer thigh works. Then bring the arms down, get taller, taller, taller, taller, taller through the spine, and relax. Take the magic circle off, place it to the side. And just Ma, you may want to move your hips a little bit back and stretch your legs out and in this position the toes along and just pull the quads up and press the knees to the two long Straw and release the legs and pull the thighs up and release and pull the thighs up and release and pull the size up and release and pull the thighs up and release. Very good. Now bend one knee and pro, stretch the other foot down and then reverse it. Flex and stretch the straight. They reach the toes towards the floor. So Tim, mortal work and flip. So the toes go up there. Megan, toes go up, toes go down. So you're doing a seesaw movement like a pump. So think pulling the knee up toward your chest, even though the heel stays on the floor, you feel that pull of then Bentley in and the other leg is stretching out and switch and switch and switch and switch and switch.
And switch. Very good. Now bring yourself, actually keep the CIC down first. So all just stretch your arms out in front of you and very slightly start rolling back, reaching the legs out and roll back up instead of very nice and tall and again, roll back, pulling the stomach in the shoulders. Come Down Debbie and roll back up. So there's a point your legs will fly up. You don't go beyond that point. Shoulders are down. Stomach is in to just get connected to the powerhouse and lift and roll back.
Long legs and lift. Two more times. Roll back and come back up and lift. And one more time like that. Rolling back and come back up and lift. Very good. Now take your ball and place it between the knees.
So the fee, do you want the feet about the same width as the knees and if you are maybe a little bit higher up when d with the ball. So it's not down here. It's up kind of on the hyper. More between the size. Top of the knees. Yep. There we go. And just squeeze the ball just like you did with the magic circle. No, you didn't do it with the magic circle, did you? And release. So as you squeeze, put your hands between your inner thighs to feel them.
You want to get in touch with the adductors, the muscle on the upper part of the thigh. And then release and squeeze. Cause you can squeeze just with the knees and you want to seed and get the whole outer thigh and inner thigh to work and squeeze. And really, so the whole thigh is working and that's it. Now as you squeeze, try to get that lift in the spine and release and squeeze and long spine, Tim, that's excellent. And squeeze and lift through the spine and release. And one more time.
Squeeze and lift and release. Now arms come in front of you, squeeze the ball and same thing you roll back, articulating through the spine, reaching the thighs away from you and roll back up. And again, roll back. Shoulders go down, go a little bit further if you can, and roll back up. So you only go as far back as you know you're in control. If you feeling gonna fall off the cliff, you're going further obviously than you're supposed to add lift and again, roll. Hug the knees and lift two more times and roll and come back up.
And one more time and roll long reaching arms and come back up. Very good. Bring the hands down. Now I'm going to turn my box [inaudible] my spine corrective sideways. I would like all of you to just get put the ball down and walk around so that you will be sitting or lying down with the top of your head and the pinnacle and you'll be holding onto the stick right above your shoulders. So you want to make sure the head is nicely supported.
Your bottom's going to be over the edge. You're kind of like, that's it Wendy. Very good. Very good. Yes. Good. Your head should be supported to Tim. Move down a bit more. Move down a bit more. And in your case that's pretty good. Let's lift up. That's you.
I'd rather have you down with your head and I'm going to get you a towel. Lift your head just, there we go. Okay, good. Everybody stretch your arm straight up to the ceiling above your shoulders and take your shoulders and press them away from your ears. So that's it. So the neck fields law, even though it's and very slightly, press your head down so you have a little bit of work in the neck down. Now keeping the shoulders down, stretch your arms back, reaching out, pulling the sternum down, arm, arms go long way from you and then bring the arms back up and down to your size
He started to loosen up or under the armpit and back down towards your size. Nice. And again, lift the arms up and reach them away. Keeping the stomach pulled in so you have a tiny little waist. Bring the arms down
And take your right leg out and then the left leg out. So both legs are straight and really reach with the toes and even get the legs together. And same thing, stretch the arms out and feel the fingers and the toes moving away from each other. So very long reach. And then bring
Take the arms up nice and long and down to your thighs. Now just put the stick onto the floor next to you
Now everybody lift your arms without the stick up to the ceiling and take your right arm over your head. But as you move it up, feel the shoulder blade lifting up and then take your left arm down to your thigh down to the side of your side. So one arm is up, one arm is down and the right shoulder is lifting a little bit so you'll have more traction with the left hand. Reach it in the opposite direction. Then bring the arms up in the middle and start reaching the arms in the opposite direction. So the shoulder blades are doing a bit of a CSR, really like the short left shoulder move, shoulder blade move up towards the hand. And the other hand goals like you out in the opposite direction, like a bow and Arrow being traction. And then bring the hands up again and then reverse it. So one arm is up, one arm is down, and you really reaching the arms apart to stretch the fibers up. Very good. Bring the arms up and reverse c.
So there's like this seesaw pulling apart of the arms and again, lift and switch the arms. One arm is up, one arm is down long all the way through the fingertips. And then the other side all the way out. Nice long stretch. Let the shoulder lift a little bit so you get that opening as you come up. Then bring the arms up to the ceiling and take the arms up over behind you towards your ears and take the arms out to the side. You're going to do big circles.
Bring the hands down and bring the arms up again. Reach them up behind above your head and around. So you're doing these big, so just start doing these circles, feeling the movement, letting the shoulder blades move a little bit so you're not holding the shoulder blades down. You're actually letting them rise up in your back. And then as the hands go out and down, the shoulder blades come down. One more time. This way. Nice Long, big circle. And then after your last one, all the way down, now you reverse it.
So you start going out and feel as though you're lifting everything up over your head and then coming down to your thighs. That's it. The palms go out and lift way up and all the way out and down and circle the arms out and up and all the way down. Very nice. And one more time like this. Take the arms out and all the way up.
And then bring yourself up to a sitting position.
That's it will actually legs and again squeeze. So you pull the feet so you're putting your feet in and relax. And one more time. Squeeze. You feel the legs, work and relax. Now you're sitting, I hear in front of the top of the allege just to here with your bottom, not here's the top. You're going to be a little bit in front. So you've got w w you'll be doing is squeezing the legs and rolling back.
Still holding on so the feet are gripping a little bit and then coming back up and then rolling back and gripping the ledge with your ankles and your calves and coming back up and sitting tall and rolling back. Closing the ribs. The are broad
Nice tall lift of the chest and the spine and same thing. You roll back and the legs keep you from falling and come back up and lift and roll back. And this time as you come up, lift the arms and roll back, reaching the arms in front of you and roll back and lift. And one more time. Rolling back, squeezing the legs in a little bit and coming back up and lifting. Very nice. Put the stick down. And now slide your back down into the ledge.
So you're sitting, you can bring your feet a little bit forward. And now bring the hands behind your head and lift the spine up. So nice and broad. First of all, close the elbows a little bit. Feel the shoulder blades getting wide behind your back and roll back and just feel the base of the ribs. Open your elbows, close your elbows, roll up and open the elbows out. And again, roll back. Going a little bit deeper this time.
So you're starting open the elbows, close the elbows and sit up tall and a little bit further. Rolling back, looking at the ceiling if you can, and close and sit up tall. And again, rolling back and looking up at the ceiling. That's it. And roll up and sit up tall. So pretty good. But just have a quick look here. When you go back, you don't want to be in this position with the back of the neck is short and you're kind of hanging out in space.
You're looking to get the shoulders and the head like a platform, so feel that the next day is long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, and then your face is long so you're not shortening and straining the neck. The head is still supported. It's really coming from the ribs. Now you actually need to release the ribs a little bit to get that part of the back. That's so stiff to start to loosen up because it's a lower rib. Cades it gets like a solid rock. So have a go again. If you can't get to parallel, that's fine.
Nice lifted body long next or literally feel as though you're taking the back of your skull and lifting it to create that. And then if the whole spine up even more height. Yes, that'd be beautiful. Now Start Rolling back. Let the spine articulate and as the head starts to go back, feel the back of the neck. Long back of the neck team, not the front of no. There we go. Good. And then contract
Sit Up nice and tall and again back of the neck is long and roll back again. So you're hovering out there much better Wendy. And then come back. Very good. And sit up nice and tall and again, rolling back, lengthening nice and long so you're supported and come back and sit up nice and tall and one more time. Rolling back like this and feel that hover position and come back and sit up nice and tall. That was really good. Excellent.
So now take your stick and if the arms are so nice and lifted, you warmed up your back and now bend your right elbow. So right elbow bends and see if you can put the stick on the floors or you may need to get your props. That's it right on the flow. So pull the stomach up and see me. Take the other elbow to the ceiling, Wendy, without bringing the shoulder forwards right to the side. Now take the left arm and start to straighten it out. Left arm is straight. Have a lift your spine.
Look at it and start to reach it towards the floor so you stretch it towards the fro. So big stretch on the left side of the ribs. Come back, try to lift and open the left arm pit, and then come up to an upright position and big lift up with the chest up with the waist. When did, that was another three inches. That's great. Bend your right elbow and put the left arm on the floor. So first of all, stretch up the right side of the ribs. Yachts, it, Megan. Yes. Now start to bring the right arm to straight. Reach the right our way out. And take a moment to feel this beautiful stretch on the right side from your hip all the way up to your shoulder. Come back, open up the right side, lift the right waist, and then bring the arms up to an upright position. Lift and again, right hand goes down. Stretch the left arm out.
Lift your chest, shoulders down, left arm straight. Reach out with it. Towards the floor. Come back, lift your elbow, and if the way up and other side, left hand down, stretch the right arm out, reach the right hand down, bring the right hand back and come all the way up to an upright position. Very, very good. Put the stick down and set yourselves up. 400 so you want your sit bones over the edge, you're pulling the stomach in and lengthening it down.
So you're kind of sitting in this little cocooned position. Just for a minute, hold here and feel how the you help with the help of your hands to just deepen into the powerhouse here. And when do you okay with your neck? Bring your knees in and extend the legs halfway up, not fully up, and really pull the stomach in and the waist down towards that empty space. Strictly
And then moving into finger like circles. We've done this before. I've just want to review with you how you get down to the floor. So you're sit at the top, one foot on the floor, one foot step down. I'll do it this way so you can see now I'm starting with my bottom and front, not at the top. So as I go back, you work your hands now and you slowly slide yourself down. If you go too quickly, you're going to fall down and then at the end then you'll lift this leg up to finish. You will slide down to the floor and rest.
So it's a little bit te strictly on the sticky mat, but we'll do our best. So make sure your bottom is in front of the edge, not on the edge. And then you slowly lower back. Use Your power has then reached down with your hands to the floor. Deb [inaudible]. That's it. That's it.
[inaudible] don't slide. That's what I was talking about. You're going to have to slide all the way down and come back again. Okay. Though the rest of you can just stretch the leg to the ceiling and just hold it there. So when do you keep your bottom forward? Right? And then back you go one hand in the floor, other hand to the floor.
Down you go, bend your elbows, then your elbows, bend your elbows. There we go. And now nice grip with the hands on the box on the side of the spine corrector and everybody's got their left leg to the ceiling. Excellent. Now extend the left leg out or towards the middle of the room. So you just stretch your hip flexor away. Way, way out. He
So just start going down and up a few times to get that opening in the hip and lower down
Two more times. Very good. Megan here. And one more time. Nice and long and come back up. Very good. Change legs. Place the other foot down and lift your right leg up. Stretch your knee, reach the foot up and extended way out.
Bring it back down onto the ledge so you can get both heels on the ledge and push into the heels and just lift your sacrum a little bit and relax. And just, it's as though you're trying to lift your bottom and your, but you're not to push into the heels to get pressure into the pelvis and relax in one more time. Push the heels that activate the hamstrings and relax. Now get a good grip with your hands again and lift your first leg up to the ceiling, stretch it, and now slightly turn it out and bend the knee and flex your foot. And push the right hip down into the bowel and stretch the leg up and point it and flex it down and stretch through the heel and reach the balls within the toes to the seating and bend and stretch.
Put the foot back down on the ledge. Lift the other leg up to the ceiling, bend the knee, flexing the foot and stretch and point and bend and stretch and point and bend and stretch and point and bend and stretch and point. Bring both legs up Pilati stance, not narrow the hips. Bend your knees and flex your feet and stretch and point and bend the heel. Stay together, not so deep, but Wendy and so half the bend and bend.

The legs go out over your head, stretching the legs, and then bring the knees up. Stretch the legs up to the ceiling. Again forces as long, long legs, narrow hips. Take your right like way away from you towards the, the leg goes away from you towards the middle of the room and bring the legs up and the left leg goes out and bring the legs up to the leg that's going down and away from you as the important leg. Stretch the neem there, Wendy and,
Rock the knees to the right, right shoulder. Lift the knees to the ceiling over to the left and bring the knees to the left shoulder.

Bring the knees towards your nose or your forehead and just rest there for a minute. Pull the stomach in and then lift the legs back up to the ceiling.

So Megan for you, flex your feet and stretch the knees and then bring the legs up and then bend the knees a little bit and wiggle yourself down to, this can be the awkward part because you have to wiggle on the sticky mat towards the floor. Once your bottom has landed, let the legs rest. Stay down there for a minute, Debbie, let the legs west and just enjoy this because this is a nice place to be. So you have a moment to actually recover from what just happened. Okay? And then roll to one side and come back up and sit on the front.
So a lot of work into the hip. Hold it there. Put the leg down, bring the first leg up, pull it in. Really feel that work into the stomach and put it down and the other leg. Pull it in.
