As a continuation of the Back (to the) Basics series, Sandy Shimoda and her lovely student Arlene demonstrate the importance of incorporating the back connection to the front of your body. Sandy's goal is to remind students and teachers that although we want to connect the back side of the body in every Pilates exercise, your Center must also be engaged three dimensionally at all times. Connecting the back to the strength of the front side will balance and coordinate the body in all movement. Sandy uses the Hundred and the Swimming to illustrate this important concept on Arlene’s body. Visit Sandy at: Vintage Pilates.
