I love this class! I have a question: can I use the exercises proposed in this class even if there is a surgery for a removal of a cervical hernia? The surgery took place more than 10 years ago.Thank you for your reply.
Maria Rosa, wise of you to screen the appropriateness of this class for the condition you describe. In all situations it is responsible to act within scope of practice guidelines. As a movement educator I seek guidance from clinical professionals in physical therapy, osteopathy and medical specialities. Some of the movement sequences in this class that may cause concern include impact in supine, impact in quadruped, impact in side lying, cervical rotation in quadruped, partial inversion with weight bearing on the upper thoracic spine. I appreciate your question. Very best to you.
I have an Allegro on the floor and substituted two widely rolled up mats on the floor for the box on the side of the carriage for the kneeling rotational work. Nice for the knees, and felt pretty flush to carriage surface.
Elizabeth, You are such a breath of fresh air just when I feel that my teaching is going stale! You give me such great ideas on how to incorporate fascial research into movement. Thank you for inspiring us (and giving us permission) to be more creative in our teaching.
