    Thank you so much for the reminder about the importance of core strength, stability, breathing mechanics and practicing pristine posture so that we may move better in our bodies. We can spend a lot of effort and energy worry about the aesthetics of the rectus abdominis when it may not even be in the physical make-up of our body. I plan to share this with my yoga community! Love your work!

    Wonderful, creative sequence – really appreciate the intermittent pauses between cycles of exertion – helps me to build proprioception. Will continue to work with this one as I’ve discovered a number of weaknesses. Love the class!

    Core work is my favorite, so I knew I would love the 360 Core class. And as usual, you did not disappoint.

    I will definitely be coming back to this class over and over. Nine months of ‘rehab’ for my issues with scoliosis and the related SI dysfunction really showed up when I did this practice…parts of it were just plain challenging to my 63 y.o. body! My L side iliacus or maybe my glute med feels cranky (as this area often does for me!) Perhaps I’ll do some extra therapy ball work here this week to see the effect. I also appreciated the breaks between poses! Great class!

    This is an awesome video for the back and core. I feel pliable and strong after doing it, and able to sit up a little straighter.

    This has been very interesting. With your instruction I feel like I’m able to do the spinal bracing but my upper back and shoulders want to “help” and it’s a challenge to focus on the spinal bracing while trying to keep the upper back relaxed. But I am noticing that my core is more engaged even walking down the hall at work but in a fluid way, not stiff like I’m posing for a picture.

      That’s awesome! Awareness is the first step – just by paying attention, you will start to rewire the pathway of upper back and shoulders trying to be your core. Yay for awareness and improved strength!
