More often than not, when I walk into and take an exercise class, I am taught by an instructor who knows little (or instructs infrequently) about form. Most individuals do not realize that everything we do, from walking to running, has a proper way to do it. The same is true with exercises. When time is not taken to understand how to do an exercise correctly (with correct form), it leads to injury. In these short videos, I will demonstrate and discuss the correct way to perform common bodyweight exercises performed in fitness classes. Format: Demonstration, explanation, and discussion Needs: A yoga mat Ability levels: Basic to advanced Class Length: 10 minutes/class
