This workshop is designed for those that would like to refresh the exercises on the Barrels. We will review basic and advanced exercises on the Small Barrel, Spine Corrector and Ladder Barrel. Besides showing the details of the Technique, we will go over progressions, similarities, modifications and variations for each exercise. Roll out the Barrels to center stage!
