Are you using your back when you work out? Are you aware of your back during the day – while you are sitting, standing and moving? Whether you are a student or a teacher, go through these basic exercises to build awareness and an understanding of the back’s role in all Pilates exercises. This quick session teaches you to feel the back working as you reach 1) from the upper back down toward your toes 2) from your low back as you reach overhead and 3) sideward as the upper back opens the arms. Once you master these concepts, work on incorporating them into each exercise on the mat, and in your daily living.
