    Loved this! What a great way to start the day. I could totally tell a difference in my breath after.

    Hello! Thank you for offering this course. I am watching the week one anatomy video and it continues to stop, the screen goes black and will not restart unless I sign out and begin again. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for the help.

    Wonderful introduction to fundamentals – helped me – hoping to become more fluent in them.

    Hello Alex: I love all these innovative ways to get the body moving! The windshield wipers and all their variations will be great for my favorite end-of-day stretching place — which is in front of the TV!

    Just watched the Anatomy video. Great info. I watched it twice just in case I missed it the first time, but didn’t here you mention anything about the knee and what kind of joint it may be. I learned that it is considered a hinge joint, but it does have some lateral slide ability (although not for any functional purpose, other than maybe pivoting). Is it a hinge joint, or maybe a category all on its own?

    I have same question as Tisha above – I also learned that the knee was a hinge joint but also considered a condyloid joint because it does have a small % of rotation internally & externally – so just wondering your thoughts on that and is a condyloid joint similar to an ellipsoid joint? Thank you!

    Some reason I cannot comment on the live videos. I was wondering if the rest days should include active recovery or literally its rest as in doing absolutely nothing?

      You deserve a “do nothing” day! You’re doing so much during the six weeks anyway. 🙂

    Awesome class Alex! A sweet way to re-enter into the world of yoga following a six month break to ‘re-hab’ or should I say get reacquainted with my spine after learning I have scoliosis. My biggest concern regards my SI joint. Because my scoliosis is a C-curve to the right involving T12-L4 (apex @ L2), my L SI joint has been an on-going issue. Anyone who has ever endured SI joint syndrome/dysfunction/pick-a-label, can attest it is an awful, shearing kind of pain! I am ALWAYS all ears whenever someone has tips or techniques to stabilize the SI joints. The Coregeous ball rolling plus the mobility class felt safe and fantastic. Looking forward to the next six weeks!

    Question for today’s live chat in case I cannot figure out how to join in:
    What are your suggestions specific to doing this program with scoliosis and what are your ‘go-to’ techniques for strengthening SI joint that has history of dysfunction/misalignment?
    Thanks!

    Hi Alex, I can’t make it to the live chat today (because I am getting a pedicure, yeah for self care!), and I have a similar question to Dianne’s. What are some good things to really focus on to help SI joint pain that has now gone all through the surrounding muscles, around the hip joint and down the IT band area? I know for sure my core needs a ton of strengthening, and that is why I am here, but anything else you would specifically suggest?

      Also, Are there any modifications I need to make for diastasis rectify, or are these already good for helping with that?

        Haha, autocorrect— I mean diastasis recti. 😉

    Thanks for offering these classes. When I watch the mobility matters class the video stops about 7 minutes in, the screen goes black, I have to log out and back in again. I have to start over at the beginning each time.

      Hi Robin, thanks for letting me know! The video file is a bit large due it’s length and it can sometimes take a while to download on the page.

      Have you tried pausing at that point to let it catch up? Another option would be to press play, then pause, and let it download for a minute or so before you click play. The speed which it downloads has a lot to do with the internet connection also. You can tell how far the download is based on the grey bar in the play bar (what you’ve watched is light green and what is downloaded is grey). I can send you a pic if that doesn’t make sense.

      Let me know if this solves the issue for you or if you have any more issues!
