I tried these exercises with my private clients and with my mat students and the next day my muscles around the shoulder blades really felt worked and my posture feels amazing. The cues are great for my client and students who may not have known movement their whole life. But they are even deeper for me personally. Plus I actually feel like I know what I am talking about!! Thanks!!
I very much appreciated this tutorial. I am now beginning to imagine all the many exercises where we want to protract and retract the shoulder blades verses where we want to flex and extend the spine. Thank you!
Ron Fletcher would tell the story of how he asked Joe what muscle did something and Joe said, "Shut Up! Every muscle in the body does it!" It is impossible to think of all those relationships at one time. That is where intelligent cuing includes changing the perspective...is it the spine or the shoulder girdle...it all goes together. I am glad that you are enjoying the imagery.
Wonderful teaching thank you so much, I am an apprentice teacher and I love this kind of in-depth explanation of what's happening and watching this type of dynamic between client and teacher! Very Helpful thank you for sharing
