Thank you Sherri and PA for a great Awesome workout and very much needed series, even though I'm fit and practice yoga and Pilates I  felt that I'm getting weaker with age I'm almost 63, so this was challenging but feel that I need to do some strength (wt) training. Great clear cues, lovely precise instructions and modifications for props. The second time I did the class I felt stronger so I'll aim to do it regularly. So much to share with clients young and old. Thanks again and have a wonderful month.

Diane such a great question, I can see where the confusion lies!  Yes, I do recommend that if you are doing weight lifting or weight training, that you don't mobilize your spine first.  That's why we do the squats with weight lifting first.  However, with postural correction using the ball to promote thoracic extension, the spine is not vertical or loaded.  We are trying to improve the thoracic extension, then strengthen the thoracic paraspinals to support the newly acquired range of motion.  I usually like to end the class with thoracic extension to help everyone with improving the round back "kyphotic" posture and maintain it after class.  I use the Kyphotic Index measurement using a flexible ruler to measure the posture improvement before and after interventions or classes.
