“Now twist and detox your organs.” If I had a dollar for all the TALK SINS that I’ve squeezed out of my body while doing twists, I would be a very purged person indeed. Rotation actions are great for your body, though they are likely not cleansing you as fitness culture frequently suggests. This class explores the origin of this myth and travels you through the twists and turns of your body joint by joint to feel how rotation fills you up, rather than empties you.

Props used in this class: Coregeous Ball, Block

After doing the LET'S TALK TWISTS class, we recommend you also do the following classes from the Replay Library:


Compound your twist skills into one of the most widely practiced standing poses in the yoga canon. The Twisted Triangle class augments your learning and provides a new “spin” on your twisting vocabulary.

**PLEASE NOTE, AT 15:34, JILL SAYS THE PELVIS IS TWISTED TO THE RIGHT WHEN SHE MEANT TO SAY LEFT

LIVE Interactive Zoom Call for this Class (only with subscription):   
March 24th; 10am PT

In the next phase of MOVE, BREATHE, ROLL, Jill focuses on common myths and misperceptions of practice that still persist in yoga and movement classrooms today. Each class tackles a myth that unrolls like a sticky mat when you filter it through anatomy, kinesiology and physiology. Join Jill on this fun myth-busting journey that also translates into other popular movement forms including pilates, CrossFit and Instagram Inspo. Each class will attempt to unpack a myth from a historical/contextual lens and take you through Tune Up Fitness movement practices that help your body to be a lab of curiosity and discovery.

One new class will be released every Thursday, over a 4 week period, followed by a Review Week on the 5th week, and LIVE Interactive Class with Jill on the 6th week based on your suggested area of focus!
