"And in me too the wave rises. It swells; it arches its back. I am aware once more of a new desire, something rising beneath me like the proud horse whose rider first spurs and then pulls him back. What enemy do we now perceive advancing against us, you whom I ride now, as we stand pawing this stretch of pavement?"

— Virgina Woolf, The Waves

The spine is an amazing piece of machinery, moving in many different ways that allow for the major part of body mobility. Mobilize and stabilize your spine with lateral bends, forward bends, twists, and backbends. Explore movement in six different ranges of motion and work at creating a sense of lightness and liberation, making waves.
