Hi Nomi,
Thank you for the kind words and the question. We progress our clients and patients as long as they maintain optimal alignment, breathing, and control throughout whichever patterns we are using with them. So if you are able to maintain proper hip and shoulder centration while maintaining three-dimensional breathing than feel free to move on through the appropriate progressions. Take care.

When ( time frame in weeks or months) can i go into the integrative excercises phase ( last phase) for my sholuders and hip , I have been doing the 1st two phases for each muscle group such as centration of the joints and then activation of the respective muscles ( Upward rotators and posteroir tiltors for shoulders and core and psoas for hip ) for abt 1 week now should I advance into integration or will that actually be too fast and compensate other muscles.

Thnaks and keep up the good work , you are a life saver have been living through this pain for abt 4 years now.
