On Tuesday morning I got to sub a yoga stretch class at Longfellow Fitness. I had a great group of women who really enjoyed themselves and we all had a great stretch together. I talked a lot about abs and how these women being older had trouble doing crunches etc. to get to their abs, so I suggested that they "bring their anus to their belly button" throughout the work out and in that they would be using their deep abdominal muscles without crunching. They loved the idea!
Thank you for a great time, ladies!
