Another well received flow. The core work seems to be going over well — no one likes doing it, but there’s always a lot of thanks when it’s all done and over with.
One student had concerns about her wheel and feeling panicky and short of breath. The issue seems to be really arching her spine and neck to get lift, rather than pressing down through the feet and hands equally. Anyone else dealt with this before? What did you recommend for the student or have others recommend for you?
In a 60 minute flow, how do you get in the core work?
