Following her previous class (Teaching the Arm Chair) that covered the Arm Chair in detail, MeJo puts it all together in this session, linking the exercises one after the other. The Arm Chair is wonderful for improving posture, upper body strength, lung capacity and is an invaluable tool for addressing all kinds of issues that cause dysfunction in the shoulders and arms. Working with Simona, MeJo moves from basic to more complex moves to challenge an experienced practitioner. Filmed at The Art of Control™ Simona Cipriani’s studio at the SUNY campus in Purchase New York.

    Great! I just did this at my desk on a stool–just to get it in my body and MeJo’s cues still made me work. Thank you Simona too for your beautiful example. Arm work is so important. Just one question as a matter of experience. I learn to do swakate this way, but Jay Grimes does it on a higher angle up–in your opinion what is the difference?

    This video is a true example of why I love Pilatesology. The videos on this site squeeze so much out of the exercises and expand out into the whole Pilates repertoire using all the unique benefits of ALL the equipment giving a full representation of what Pilates really can be. Thankyou MeJo I think you pulled together your detailed demonstrations from your previous video into a compact and efficient teaching routine here. It’s so beautifully sharp and practical thank you so much. Yes I too was impressed with Simona’s form – thank you Simona for your great example.
