    Just to clarify..when you say “wrap the bottom,” does that mean tighten the butt? And articulate the spine…roll down one vertebra at a time?

    I enjoyed this class! Thank you!

      when legs are together- press your heels together- that is the wrap engagement. and articulate the spine is as you stated! hope this helps!

    Wow! Far from easy & so very beneficial! You get out what you put in though it feels like perhaps I got more – a bonus perhaps. 🙂

    Well I had no idea you could be so calm kathy! But I love it just as much as when you are like a Tornado. I truly believe we can use Pilates to facilitate what our bodies need each day, because it can really vary depending on what we are doing. As an instructor you hit the nail on the head, I need for my body to unwind from working with others all day long.
    Love you!

      THANK YOU!! LOL i usually do things more “tornado” like because there are SOOOOO many other teachers out there teaching in a calm manner (not saying easy LOL). I love, just like you do, that we have so any options in one method to give the individual client what they need!!!
      YEAH!!! so happy yu enjoyed this!
