ANATOMY AND CONNECTION FOR BARRE FITNESS
with Lindsey Long
Connecting with your students is the key to teaching success and the hands-down best way to create connection is by being hands-on. Step one in giving effective hands on adjustments is to have a deep understanding of the key anatomical structures in barre fitness - the pelvis, hips and spine. In this dynamic, hands-on anatomy and movement mechanics session, you will explore these key anatomical structures, how they should (and shouldn't) move, and how your hands-on feedback can help your students stay safe and challenge themselves throughout class.
