  1. Just wanted a clarification on the sliding of sitzbones back and forth…the counter twist is similar to an open twist?


    1. I’m not sure what you mean by “similar to an open twist”. Usually when we twist to the right, the left sitzbone drifts forward. The instruction is to draw that sitzbone back for more of a twist. Hope this helps.
