Excellent, thank you! Two follow-up questions on that warmup after trying it out —

(1) Is there a dumbed down version he can cover for the final bridge to downward dog transitions? I love them as a ground drill to teach my body all the positions I need to do in the air, but my shoulders aren’t flexible enough yet to manage the bridge without cramping up.
(2) When in the air, how essential is that range of motion? Are there ways I can use core strength to compensate for a smaller range of motion and shorter limbs? Asking because when I visualize the physics of it, it seems like a bigger range of motion would be essential to keep my weight “behind” the pole of the fabric, but when I get stuck on my hip key rollups, it doesn’t “feel” like a lack of mobility, it feels like a lack of strength.

Thanks again!
