The Spine Corrector is normally used at the end of a session to work on specific issues in the body but it’s also fun to use for a whole workout. Old exercises feel new again as Alisa integrates the mat into the Spine Corrector repertoire for a session that works the whole body while opening the hips, chest, shoulders and neck. You'll finish with the Leg Circles onto the Head. Enjoy!

    Hi Alisa, I know this is an older video, but spine corrector is spine corrector, n’est pas? This reminded me of your workshop here (fabulous!) Anyway, I just used this for Clare’s #Pilates45 challenge…thank you very much, perfect! Oh, got my head up and lifted for leg circles onto the head <3

      Thanks Sunni! I love that you’re doing Clare’s 45 day challenge, I can’t wait to hear your reports from Day 40 and beyond. xo PS – good girl for getting your head off the mat, you know what you’re doin!

    Hi Alissa! Love this class! Can you direct me as to how to “gracefully” get myself up at the end of this workout? Lol…I have been pulling my knees towards my chest and pushing corrector away…do you suggest another exit to finish?

    • Alisa Wyatt Author

      Hi Cara! It’s a bit awkward to get up right? After you are all done resting at the end of the workout (the best part!) try hugging your knees toward your chest as you roll to the side. It will still be awkward as you roll toward the edge of the mat but with some practice I bet you can make it graceful and controlled. 🙂

    Wonderful “get out the kinks” class! I’m sure I’ll be doing this one over and over again!

    Thanks Alisa, this workout was lots of fun. Just what I needed today:) I love the arms doing the splits – such a good description. And hello new hips!

    Great workout! The series 5 and some of the other mat exercises can be deceptively hard on the spine corrector. Thanks for showing the grasshopper! That exercise and the side sit-ups are two of my favorites here. I like the help of the strap around the mat for the side sit-ups. Sometimes I just use my Wunda chair by my feet for that extra help, but I think I’ll pull out my strap next time.

      Thanks for working out with me! Grasshopper here is my favorite place for it too, it might look more impressive on the Large Barrel but feels so nice on a Spine Corrector.

    Superb form throughout. You demonstrate the Art of Contrology beautifully.You must practice an hour or more each day.
    What do you call the exercise at the end whereby you bring your kness in toward your right ear and then to your left ear and then making a circle?

    • Alisa Wyatt

      Thank you, the Spine Corrector is one of my favorite pieces of apparatus and the exercise you ask about is possibly my most favorite of all. It’s called Rolling In and Out and there are several slight variations, all of which make your lower back feel fantastic.
