Monday 10:30 Level 2 Mat class

This is the SECRET PAGE for Monday Level 2 students; please don’t share the page or the links with other people. I’ll update it each week, after class has occurred.

How to get to the Zoom class (same info for all classes for the entire semester!)

Fall Semester Details:

  • Fall 2020 Semester will be 100% Virtual
  • Live classes will run Sept 28 – Dec 11 (no classes Veterans Day 11/11. We also take the week of Thanksgiving off)
  • Recorded classes will post for 1 week after each class, so if you miss class or want to repeat it, you can always access the link on this page.

Week 5 of Fall 2020 Semester! We’re using a few props: foot domes (if you have em,) a book no more than 2” thick, a chair to help you balance, optional towel rolled into a donut for “kneeling archer position” (down on 1 knee.)

What’s different this week? A little more challenge in the Standing Series with Standing Bicycle. How are you doing with getting your seat to kick in during this series? When you’ve got muscle fibers that are complaining…..squeeze the whole darned thing. Let me know: do you find that your hip complains less? There are a few more Booster Options this week and a return to the classic version of Abdominal Series. We’re also continuing our work on Spine extension with planking and Camel pose.

Joe chair
Joe invented LOTS of different pieces of exercise equipment. The Wunda chair is quite advanced, as it supplies zero support for your spine — the student must provide their own support via the powerhouse.
airplane board
Famous opera diva Roberta Peters using the Airplane Board. Can you see how her feet are NOT level? The board highlights this, so she can work on right/left symmetry.
