1) Today we practiced not moving the knee forward during movements involving steping forward. Think of “stretching” hamstring and calf muscle as if knee pushing those 2 points apart (like a triangle )

Corrections in first movement when arms leads out to right after foot shovels forward-should be a positive circle leading with hand.

Also in first move as arms sweeps through to front, lead with elbow and don’t let arm or elbow drop lower.

In second movement correction was to make sure I never see my palm. Don’t turn wrist.
