side body love

Dec 20, 2020

This practice addresses some of your sore QLs, as a couple of you described. The Quadratus Lumborum are two muscles that lie deep in your flank area — sort of a back muscle, sort of a core muscle.

Sept 26, 2020

Feel empowered in this flow that enlists the back body muscles to encourage safe, healthy, and great-feeling heart opening. Find an emphasis on energetic seals — like the cue to squeeze into your midline, or to draw the feet toward one another, protecting & strengthening your joints.

Thoracic Mobility

One of the consequences of aging and modern life is a creeping tightness in the thoracic spine. It’s quite a challenge to keep this section of the back as mobile as it was when we were little kids who hadn’t yet developed decades-long habits like too much sitting and slouching.… Read More “Thoracic Mobility”

Low Back Love

This class is especially great for anyone who wants to protect, strengthen, open and stabilize the lower back. With precision cuing and a mindful pace, you’ll hear reminders to engage the deep core, to strengthen the upper-back (thereby relieving overuse stress), and to fire the low gluteals, which can easily go underutilized.… Read More “Low Back Love”
