Maybe you've noticed that you or some of your students have ribcages that are stiff and tend to move as a block instead of with fluidity. When one area is tight, it's very common that an area nearby, possibly the lumbar spine, becomes hypermobile. Improving ribcage and thoracic spine mobility will help take load off the lumbar spine by distributing movement across more than one segment and bring balance to the spine. This video takes you through a quick warm-up routine that moves the thoracic spine and ribcage in all directions.
