Last week I wrote about the Spine Stretch Forward exercise and showed how it runs through the Pilates system in our classes. This week let's take a look at the Push Down on the Wunda Chair & Roll Down on the Mat.
Have a look at the video below!
See if you can keep your hips over your ankles and keep your bottom in.
Another place to try the Roll Down is standing against a wall. The wall provides feedback to show you if you are keeping your body weight even with your hips over your ankles.
Breathing helps you to find your centre and maintain that all-important Spine Stretch Forward shape.
Think about all the cues for muscle connections I normally give in our breathing exercises and use them throughout the system to help you.
