    I see in the book that one can chose to do a kwa fold or a kwa squat. Will you be demonstating the kwa squat during one of the lessons?



    Hi Gary,

    As you noted, the book describes two options for the leg work of Move 3, the kwa fold and the kwa squat.

    Off the top of my head, I can’t remember whether it will be Week 9 or 10 when we’ll have a video for you about how to do the kwa squat option. But we will have that video for you in one of those weeks.

    I like to encourage beginners to do the kwa fold option first and for a while, as we’ve done in this course. As the book says, the kwa squat option is the generally preferred option, but the kwa fold is easier to do in the beginning. The kwa squat includes a kwa folding action as well, so in a way it’s the kwa fold plus.

    Each option stretches the body in a different way so you can use each for different effects. For example, if I’ve been sitting for a long time in a car or in front of my computer, I like the way the kwa fold releases my lower back. If I really want to work my legs, I like the effect I get from the kwa squat.

    To be continued in future weeks,
