    I have always enjoyed riding with Mary, but my usual comment is that there are Sally Swift people and Mary Wanless people. Sally Swift imagery does nothing for me or usually actually gets me to do...

    An idea I got from one of the pilates books out there (don't have it in front of me) was to align the ribcage over the hips. Feel where you can slide the ribcage around without moving the hips. My...
