Join Sandy Shimoda and Karen Frischmann in this fantastic workshop aimed at getting the most out of your mat class with the help of the Barrels - including the Small Barrel, Spine Corrector and Ladder Barrel. They explain the genius behind the Barrels' design and how they allow for opening, strengthening and increasing flexibility of the spine. After explaining why flexibility of the spine is so important, Karen and Sandy share ways to take yourselves and your clients deeper into the matwork and target certain issues in the body that cannot be addressed on the mat alone.
