If you’re an athlete, and participate in a sport, at some point you’re going to fall. This week we’ll be working on throwing ourselves at the ground, and coming up unscathed. Practicing going to ground is great for improving coordination and balance, as well as further developing your proprioception and kinesthetic sense. We’ll be moving through the progression of forward rolls, crane poses, and headstands. Hitting the deck, and bettering our sense of our bodies in space.
