YES! Really found my up stretch in opposition to my down stretch. When a client get’s the theory of opposition in each movement it just changes everything :-). On that note and based on your closing chat at the end of the class…… I change my cues every few months. Not just for my clients (as otherwise they second guess me) but for myself. New cues = new passion for whichever exercise I am teaching and that generally changes the way a client feels/understands the exercise.
Thanks Lesley. I really appreciate the effort you put into your on-line classes and the change of focus each week. I am able to deepen the work into my own body but also take new cues into the sessions for my clients. x

Nikki, thank you so much for your comment. It really means so much to me. I am so grateful that I get to share my ideas and thoughts, themes and that you and others enjoy them and find something valuable is what I hoped for. I am so happy you found your Upstretch too!! And so happy you get to use these cues with your clients too! It’s a double win xx~LL

Hi Lesley ~ I really loved the cue in rowing 1: “think tips of blades rotating in and toward each other” to keep the shoulders wide. I use a similar cue in mat classes – “gently pull the tips of the shoulder blades together”, it helps keep the shoulder blades/back wide and the chest open!
cheers xx-Lori

ohh I like your version too! Thank you for joining me for class today and hope you have fun with the wrist class this week too! xx~LL
