Loved this session Benjamin. Just a bit confused with principles of Leg Circles. I've been taught pelvis to stays anchored on mat as leg circles, not lifting with spine rotation as you teach. Which is correct? I suppose really no right or wrong it's comes down to what feels good. I like both :)
Thanks so much for your message and question Jaye - correct, there is no right or wrong ;) originally, this exercise had the lifting hips initiating the movement and bringing the spine into rotation and prepare for movements such as Corkscrew and Saw later. Keeping the pelvis anchored is a great exercise in and of itself, for a different goal, and it's a great alternative if spinal stiffness or injury keeps you from doing the original version. If you can, keep practicing both!

Really enjoyed your cuing and use of humor, Benjamin! Love your breathing reminders, especially about "stealing your breath." Got to remember that one! Thank you for a wonderful class.

Thank you lovely gentle teaching. It was interesting to look at the fundamentals this way. The one leg circle I was always taught to focus on pelvic stability? so I have to admit I am a little confused on that one
