Have been waiting for this one to come out because you get so many creative versions and angles which our bodies really need. Elizabeth, do you find a particular formula helps to build a VIIT class? Meaning body positions to follow, supine, quadraped etc and starting from feet and working up through the body and then return to the start again?
Terrip88*, thank you for checking about the appropriateness of this class for osteoporosis. You are correct that Short Spine Stretch which is loaded thoracic flexion is contraindicated. In addition, the quadruped abdominals with hands on box that involves thoracic rotation is also contraindicated. Options: you may keep the jumping sequences and replace the thoracic flexion and rotation with related excerpts from my Reformer 2017 class. Caution in terms of sustained weight bearing through wrists Very best to you!PS: my next VIIT reformer class that posts next week has options that are safe for bone health
Super fun, very creative, and lots to learn and digest. I really enjoyed the conversation between Elizabeth and Kristi - it added both good humor and good things to think about. Thank you for a wonderful class!
