This quick basic workout follows a previous class (Apparatus How To – Gratz Reformer) in which Kathi Ross Nash gave detailed explanation on how to properly set up and use the Pilates Universal Reformer. Here, Kathi takes Lynanne Escatel (and you if you're up for the challenge!) through a classical basic routine on the Reformer to demonstrate the proper flow of the workout for a healthy body. For info on training with Kathi visit: KathiRossNash.com.

  1. Great one again!
    Question: Why are Lynanne´s legs down in first part of 100?
    Thanks and hug from Ibiza 😉

      this is a lovely way and safe way to introduce the 100. it focuses on the upper stomach. the strength of the upper stomach is needed to correctly support the back, the lower abdominals and the weight of the legs. Over time the 100 has lost its upper back lift. there was a period when people where being told to ALWAYS touch the tips of the shoulder blades to the mat. this was due to the closing of the chest. everything we do is building blocks… FIRST we must get the stomach working. every student will have a different position. find the one that works the best. the leg down variation also promote a LONG spine and stomach, not a crunched and thick middle.

    Don’t have Apparatus, but, as an observer I thought Lynanne made the work look so smooth and effortless. Great stuff.
