Hi Dawn, I really enjoyed the workshop, thanks for sharing this. Love the use of the balls to make the exercises more interesting, challenging and effective. Also loved the butterfly exercise and looking forward to trying it out.

Hi Dawn, the feedback the body receives from the balls in this back workout is extremely effective. This is wonderful material for me to share with my clients, many of whom are dental professionals with tight forward rounded shoulders. Thank you so much for a very well presented workshop.
Wonderful workshop! Thank you so much!! I look forward to watching more of your videos.
I loved this workshop! I am working with a lady, mid 50's, slight scoliosis , I'm thinking this will be very good for her as well. Your thoughts. She is short, does not have mich space between her ribs and hips. She is just starting her Pilates journey, and is very excited to learn,
Thank you Dawn, great workshop, very informative and helpful!
