Pain in between the shoulder blades? Stiff or stuck feeling in the upper back? Lower back or neck pain? Your thoracic spine could be the culprit! This section of the spine is responsible for twisting and rotating movements, however - with the current work and lifestyle climate alongside common movement patterns in exercise and daily life - this area tends to miss out on the movement it needs to stay healthy and mobile. The result of this is a tight, rigid thoracic spine which makes it difficult to 'sit up straight' or rotate from the correct place. Other parts of the body begin to compensate for the lack of mobility here, such as the neck and lumbar spine which can then cause pain and tension in these areas as a result. Ideally you will need two blocks or similar and a stretchy band for this class, however it can be done just as well without!

It was the little clicks for me 😂

I really enjoyed the educational side to this class and really moving with such purpose. After more than a few little clicks in the right places and a great chest opener and massage at the end, I really notice a good difference
