In Pilates there's a saying: "Don't use 10 pounds of effort for a 5 pound movement." The secret to losing that extra 5 pounds of effort is all about using your center. This advanced mat session does just that by bringing continuous awareness to engaging your stomach for all movement, thereby creating a better C-curve in your back. When your spine is able to lengthen and then bend in all directions, you're able to do more difficult exercises with less effort. This efficiency of movement is one of the main reasons so many athletes use Pilates as a training tool—it allows them to work smarter, not harder. Visit Kara at www.KaraWilyPilates.com.

      Fun! Fun! I am realizing we could have even done a little less instruction. Maybe the next one!
