I began with the idea behind the developmental 'sequencing' of your 'intention' in practice - so that you can create, for yourself, the experiences I offer when you work with me. Then I led a class that offered a step-by-step approach to each posture.
We started on the ground to get into how to find standing relationships to the ground that leave the lower back free and the core of the body responsive, did a fed leg extensions, the progressed into standing postures including warrior and triangle.
