Dear Clare, love you to pieces for this tutorial. It validates so much of what I've been struggling to work with my clients and it gives me so many more ways to explain it to them. Thank you again! and yes thanks to Amy for been such a perfect student. :)

absolutely fabulous,..and all of a sudden I have a lot of work! Can´t wait for the look at head and shoulder placement, because that turned out to be an issue for me in the end.. And the breathing! I have to send my diaphragm somewhere else to keep the ribs in place.. thank you so much! Clare, you are great inspiration!
incredible instruction clare....very well done...you certainly do remind me of myself, funny/passionate and an over extended gymnast/aerobic instructor since the early 80's...i can't wait for the next tutorial. thank you..i so appreciate you.
it took me many years myself to get the ribs.
