Such a great class, thank you Nyk! I have a question about the very beginning when we are on our backs and hovering the leg. Your instruction is not to move the pelvis when doing this; am I flattening the back to the floor, ie not allowing the small of my back to arch (as it naturally does for me)? Thanks <3

Good question! No you are not altering the natural curve of your spine at all. When I mention not moving your pelvis I'm referring to the tipping from that happens when you lift one foot off the floor

I am a new convert to your lessons after doing one in one of the challenges. Very interesting lesson and I could feel all those muscles working with the small movements. I will come back to this one. Thank you.

I've been doing this class once or twice a week to help strengthen my back after having a baby (he's 8 months now). It's definitely helping me cope with all the lifting and bending without getting all hard core. Thankyou!

Lovely mindful sequence! It felt so good to work on those small muscles that are often overlooked. Thank you Nyk.
