Thank you!! I'm going to add these exercises to my own daily routine and definitely I'll share this with my clients!!
so helpful, Lesley! Thank you for breaking it into pieces, - it still is such a complicated area! With clients who are stuck with high shoulders, - pulled up and tight in inward rotation, - would you also do this? 
Waking the rotator cuff muscles have made amazing changes in my clients’ shoulders.  Between understanding the bone rhythms and improving rotator cuff function is key to a better shoulder girdle. 
I love the way you explain things clearly with visuals. Looking forward to more. :)
Watching all these videos has been so enlightening, and is most valuable resource for me, thank you for this lovely precise teaching. When are you going to come to London?!
