What’s it good for?

🌟 The body- all of it!  Full body integration: abdominals, shoulders, spine, hip flexors and it’s a great barometer for how our practice is coming along!⁠

A Quick Guide to Teaser Prep

 

💡 Pull in your abdominals firmly to prevent your lower back from arching as your hip flexors contract to hold your legs in the air.⁠
Keep your legs stationary as your roll up and down.Focus on your abdominals which will allow you to get a smooth, sequential roll up and roll down. Watch for hinging from the hips: it means you are relying on your hips flexors rather than your abdominals.⁠
💡 Imagine that someone is holding your toes so that they remain totally stable as you raise and lower your trunk.⁠
