Smaller group than usual for this time slot, but they were all so powerful!  Really great class.  Again, had some good questions at the end of class.  One student asked about stretches for the low back, while another was curious about jump backs.  I don’t practice jump backs (I’ll confess to a deep-seated fear of not being strong enough and getting hurt) but there are a couple students who have beautiful practices that include jumping back.  I asked one of them if he minded demonstrating while I talked through the Sun A so the other student could get an idea of what it looked like.  Her response was “Yeah, not doing that anytime soon!”  HA!  I hear ya, sister!
