Jack Coble, co-founder of Pilatesology is back with 3 exercises designed specifically for left handed clients. Learn exactly what you should be focused on when you practice the Helicopter on the Wunda Chair and the Mechanic on the Reformer. Jack also demonstrates why if you're left handed you should avoid the Washing Machine (a.k.a. the Egg Beater) exercise at all costs. Don't miss this important tutorial that will change the way all left handed people work out! Filmed at Pilatesology Studio in Hermosa Beach, CA.

    I was just looking for a short freebie class to add to my website to further inspire my clients ‘homework’ – and I found it – Jack you will be broadcast in the homes in Malmo Sweden shortly. So happy for this 😉 Faith

    This is amazing! Can’t wait to teach Crouching Tiger to my clients! A true tutorial. Archival stuff and all! My favorite part, perhaps, was seeing how hard it made Alisa laugh! Too cute you guys!

    I don’t know how I missed this video when I came out in April.
    I really am left handed. So this video has been so helpful. Now Pilates makes finally sense to me. Thanks Jack for your amazing incite!!!

    I have to say that as funny as this was (and it was), Jack’s exercises were actually functional!
    squatting, crawling, rolling, jumping. Loved it!

      You’re right and I always like to think that ALL movement is good for us, especially when we are playing :)!

    LOL, this is everything. I tried the Washing Machine but my attempt wasn’t nearly as good as Jack’s.

    Does it matter which foot is forward on the washing machine?

    Oh Jack and Alissa I just LOOVED this, I was hooting with laughter out loud with the Washing Machine and the Mecanic and of course the come-up-to-standing roll-up.!!! You guys are gems!

    I am so grateful for this site. I have been practicing the mechanic wrong for so long. Thank you for clarifying. Love you two!

    Perfect timing for this! I have a few “lefties” that could use some help! Always remember to add detergent to the washing machine when you are ready to advance the exercise…most students will never be ready to add the softener, but it’s something to work towards! I confess I may have spontaneously practiced the “hidden dragon” maneuver when unexpected solicitors show up at the studio! Thanks Jack and Alisa, you rock! Happy Easter!

    Hahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa:) The Wasching Machine is Great. It must have been one of those preety old-fashioned and vintage Pilates exercises; :):):) Thank you Jack …. and … last but not least …. God, mind your tummy while performing your Mechanic. Please, stay safe!
