A LITTLE UNWIND CAN MEAN SUCH A LOT - HOLIDAY VIDEOS FOR YOU

I'm about to give you the best gift I could think of, a few weeks away from the Bla Bla factory!

But that isn't enough to express my gratitude for your coming along to classes and being a part of the team of beautiful humans that make up our movement community.  I know that this time of year can get pretty busy and perhaps even stressful for many people. After a recent long car trip my own positive experience with short bursts of our program was so helpful I was inspired to make a few videos for you. The production quality is not great, as I did not have access to my usual make-up team and film crew. In fact the camera broke down and I had to come back to the trusty Iphone. It looked pretty funny there on the tripod, wedged between the proper camera and the microphone (neither of which were working.....but it did the job!)

I think they still stand up with what they offer though - bite size approaches to unwinding tension, and even starting to get stronger - all approached in a more easeful way. In my own experience and this is also true in many of the people I've worked with, what tends to get you to monkey bar queen/king status is not the pushups, it is releasing the tensions that inhibit full access of a wide range of muscles that support whole body movements. 

Thank you so much for coming along this year, and for those of you we haven't met yet - thanks for visiting and we hope to catch up soon. Wishing you every happiness for 2017. Here are your videos.  Please enjoy!

Part 1 is all based on a Psoas Release position as the foundation. The only equipment used in all 3 videos was found in our Air Bnb cottage. Couch cushions were a feature!

Part 2 allows you to get used to this whole idea of supporting more of your body weight via your arms - but very gently and at the rate you are ready for. At the same time you can release tension via a number of exercises.

Part 3 involves a lovely foot tension release = try it, you won't believe what a difference it makes to how you feel.

 Congratulations to Robyn on winning the foot massage mat! Thanks to Trish for being in charge of selection protocol on the day (Trish closed her eyes and all entries were folded. Random selection guaranteed).

 And just incase you were wondering, this is one such monkey bar queen in her natural environment. We have many others, but not all will let me photograph them yet! Thanks Laura X
