Karen teaches how to find and keep a connection from your back through your arms when the arms are extended overhead. She uses several apparatus and exercises to show how the reach of the arms should originate from down deep in the back to support the arm reach. On the Cadillac she uses the Swan and Teaser; on the Reformer, the Rowing; on the Ladder Barrel, Swan; and then back to the Reformer for Breaststroke. She continues this idea in her next session: Finding the Back Connection with Arms by Sides. Filmed at Vintage Pilates in West Los Angeles, CA.
