What I like about it:

I love that even though this course has exercises for opening up full body posture, Stacey spends a bit of extra attention and time to strengthening and releasing various regions of the upper body, which makes it a perfect companion to the other courses of the beginner (and dance!) bundle.

What it does for me:

It helps me to gently ‘reset’ my posture, and it feels great to do after traveling and/or doing longer bouts of computer work, and/or when I’m in between dance/martial arts classes. 

Effects after a few sessions:

My shoulder area is more relaxed, and my posture feels a bit ‘lighter’ after working with this course.

My favourite exercise:

I especially enjoy the ‘unfreeze your shoulder’ part, as I can feel the effects immediately.

The ‘seated’ leg exercises are really nice on my body, so I do those every now and then after (and at times even during!) computer work.
