1:1 Monday, March 24

My Monday Morning Client.
She has lost over 5 pounds, but more importantly she looks completley different. She is brighter, sunnier, laughs more easily. We have so much fun together. She has inspired me to start teaching more difficutl and challenging work to the beginners. She shows me how much I have been holding back cuz things are hard.

Attention to the Bowl of the Pelvis. Attention to the alignment.
Note: When we first met, she could not balance here. Now she can balance and work with details.

Looked at the possibility of half handstand at wall.
I knew we would not "get into it" but I got the hit to look at it.
She is 200 pounds and feels like she cannot hold herself up, but I feel she is really close.
Her planks are strong. So, combination of getting her comfortable with her weight and understanding the fear around supporting herself.

She was suprised and delighted at how good this felt.

Note: Childs pose is more of a burden and discomfort than rest cuz her butt does not touch her heals and her belly gets in the way.
