      Hello from across the pond! I am delighted that this brought you some much needed stimulus during this uneasy time. Thanks for watching and we will keep growing together.

    Hi, Sonjé~
    Thank you for such a great class! I noticed you placed a pad under one of the girls’ back for her slight lordosis. I have a client who has a pretty defined lordosis…would you suggest placing a pad for Reformer work for most clients with lordosis? Would you have any other suggestions? Many thanks!

      Most definitely any marked lordosis will need a roll! Clients with obvious lordosis will ‘tuck’ (posterior pelvic tilt) without a prop in their attempt to imprint and anchor the sacrum.
      The prop provides the correct stimulus to promote lengthening of the shortened lower back and to fire up the deep core, which is typically weak with lordosis.
      As time goes by, the prop can be reduced in size until they may not need it.

    LOVE this vid. So much great info – by far my favourite teacher on here, not least for the improvement in results I’m getting from my clients from her workshops. One query as I want be sure my understanding is correct. At 20 mins “sit like a man” doesn’t the femur need to be brought across the midline internally to stretch the piriformis. In the sit like a man stretch i understood that we are stretching the glute med and min, but the Piriformis would not be in tension here?

      Sorry for my late reply. You are correct in that “sitting like a man” stretches the gluteus med and min but it does also stretch the piriformis because once the hip is flexed at 90 degrees or more, piriformis becomes a medial rotator.
