Heart Opener Map

Length: 0:29:16

Lengthen out rounded posture, release fascial restrictions around the diaphragm and ribs, and alleviate hip and pelvic pain with this 30-minute map. Designed for experienced MELTers, this video features a Rebalance Sequence, Sternal Release Sequence, and a Lower Body Length Sequence – so it’s a great video to take your practice to the next level.

Important: You will always perform the Sternal Decompress after the Upper Body Compression Sequence; this technique should never be practiced as a stand-alone move. If you feel light-headed after performing this move, lay on your back for a few minutes to let your body recalibrate.
