She demonstrates this with several rolling exercises: Rolling Like a Ball, Open Leg Rocker and Seal.

      Hi Kikemarin, thanks for your question. At Vintage Pilates use simple language to describe areas of the body that relate to Center strength. The Seat is comprised of the muscles of the bottom and hips that help control, move and stabilize the pelvis and low back. They are at work in every exercise in Pilates.
