Kathi teaches this mat class by using a wall as a constraint to challenge and align the body for more stability and strength. The wall forces you to use honest movement because you have the wall to tell you when you're cheating or falling out of alignment. It will help you feel the 2 way stretch in your body, build your stamina and help you build strength to do better at some commonly frustrating exercises like Teaser or Star that benefit from having the wall for support.
