Thank you! This was very helpful.

I loved watching the transition and cueing from the rounded spine to the flat back. The note about pushing the sits bones back toward the heels to not push the carriage out with the arms is such a great point as well.

I really enjoyed the cue of holding the pole stable at the hips because made it very clear that the the pelvis isn't initiating the movement, its coming from the core, glutes, and to think of only the legs moving.

I really appreciate how you are assisting the student by gently placing hands on the hips to remind them to keep their sits bones toward the heels instead of dropping the pelvis forward

I really enjoyed all the tactile cues used  such as the hands on the pelvis and use of the pole. I also thought it was very interesting to hear further explanation of the reasoning behind why the student should be so far back with their pelvis close to their heels since this makes them less likely to use the bar as a means of doing the work in the exercise.

I love the clarity of this movement. This exercise is intense and full body, so it was helpful to see what cues were used to make sure a student/client feels what is supposed to be working.

The cue about positioning the tailbone and sitz bones over the heels/shoulder block in the flat back version of knee stretch is very helpful! "Sticking the butt out" can sometimes cause the back to arch as well, so this cue helps maintain the flat back while keeping the pelvis in the right place.
