Niedra leads a series aimed at opening up your feet, calves and low back using the Pilates 2 x 4 (check out our DIY post on making your own covered 2 x 4!) and a long pole (a broomstick is a perfect substitute) for a series of shoulder and chest stretches that are fantastic for ending or beginning any Pilates workout!

    Thank you so much. In addition to teaching at a fully equipped pilates studio I also lead mat pilates classes at few gym studios in my area. Although I try to encourage these “mat only” students the value of what the full system can provide this does not always translate to them crossing the full studio threshold (cost, creatures of habit, etc.). This broomstick series is great for that environment because we have poles – and you can see the “aha” moment with the feedback. Simple prop. Very effective. Thank you Niedra.

      Thank you for your comment Tani, I know and understand the different publics we all dal with : mat group and studio privates. I love your willingness to offer quality for both groups and yes, some people will never move to studio settings and some will – offering both the best teaching possible means they benefit form Pilates no matter what their choice is

    Great roll down with the pole behind the shoulders, challenging but I loved the feeling afterwards!
