    I would have liked the camera to focus more on the diagrams than on the speaker. That way we could see the muscles the speaker was telling us about.

    Great info- I had to watch some of the sections twice -it is a good amount of strategy involved. Great cues about assessment and positioning. I will use some of these exercises with my clients tomorrow!
