Once you learn this trick you can transfer that activation to your Pilates practice and daily life! Visit Victoria at Pilates on 66 in New York, NY where this video was filmed.

    Victoria your tutorials are superb!
    Question regarding footwork on the reformer with hyperextended knees. What is the cues you will give someone on the reformer? Will you instruct the same foot activation, pressing the first and last metatarsal joints into the bar? Any other cue? Again, I really appreciate sharing your knowledge.
