Jennifer shares the biggest secret for making every Pilates exercise harder: whatever your body does easily, do a little bit of the opposite. Watch this brilliant concept in action as she takes her student Michelle through several exercises showing how Michelle can work much more deeply with a tiny change in her alignment. Whether you're an enthusiast or Instructor, this 4 minute video will change the way you practice Pilates. Our thanks go to Moses Urbano for the use of his beautiful Studio Mo in San Diego, CA where this session was filmed. Visit Jennifer at her website True Mind Media.
