FOCUS: Improve flexibility and mobility for squatting
The movements in this class can help to increase ankle and hip flexion and range of motion, especially if practiced with the right props. If you can’t get your heels to the ground in a squat, it is important to note that some people have genetically stiff ankles, while others have a lack of flexion available in their hips or lack of dorsiflexion in their ankles. For some people, restrictions in flexing the knees may be the limiting factor. It is important to use props for support in this class and observe where movement may be limited without judgement. Use the cues and props to adjust accordingly.

Focus: Heart Opening
Heart opening postures expand the chest and rib cage, create more space, and make you feel more receptive and free. When the back rounds, the chest can collapse, and over time this pattern may create pain and tension in various areas of the body. Heart opening postures counteract the pattern of rounding forward. This class focuses on postures that access the upper and middle parts of the spine, which are often underutilized.
