This was quite juicy...I love the flow practice interspersed with the seated and supine work...this really keeps the circulation flowing! 🍊🍊🍊

I am having problems watching these videos.  On both of them they stop constantly.  Other videos on this site are fine.    I can't  get through the entire session, and I so want to do all of these.   Thanks for any help you can offer🦋🌾

Thank you Kira, I finally got through the video, but it took a long time.  However I love the release in my shoulders and neck, and love using the tennis ball on pressure points.🏵🌾🌸

Hi Joan, I reached out in a private message about your video issue! Do let me know if this still happening, and we'll do our best to sort everything out. Warmly, Ashley

I tried massaging the occipitalis with the dowel, and then went to two toted sponge balls, which feels much better for me. Not crazy about using something so hard. I know I can cushion it... but I like the "give" that the balls provide. Guess I'm used to them! Loved the initial exercises for releasing the shoulders. Thank you!!

I'm loving these practices!  My calves feel so much longer in my downward dog after doing day 1.  I also like the idea of the dowel for the occipitals because it is something I could take with me when I travel.  I occasionally use the back of my kitchen chair for a similar release but no so portable.  :)  I'm actually using a wooden paddle since I didn't have a dowel.  I will definitely recommend these practices!!
Hi Heidi! 
So happy that you are doing these with me and that you can find ways to take them on the road. I found really creative ways to practice and get release and relief while on a year long climbing road trip with my kiddos! Stay in touch.

Oh. I love this one. So delish after a long work day painting and crafting and doing calligraphy. I will return to this again and again. It's a favorite.
