    Great work both Jihye and Nan-Young! to observe how the same exercises working different ways in each body; that give the conclusion that more close we are to the original method; more easy to understand how how body move; We don’t need to be a copy of others; what we need to targeting is our own body and the bodies of our students; searching from strong center and I like that “irradiate” the two way to stretch. Thanks Sandy for this work, learning always from you. Love Luz

      Nice insight Luz. Improving and “targeting” the movement of a body with Pilates (mine included) excites me every day! Thank you Joe and Jay!

    It was a pleasure to watch the teaching and the work of 2 different bodies. Thank you Sandy, Jihye and Nan-Young. I am inspired. 🙂 Sandy I love how you explained the two way stretch in Leg Pull Front/Back and Kneeling Side Kicks as trio that is consistent on the front, back, and sides.

      Thanks Joel! This killer trio is one I continue to work on in my own practice. Jihye and Nan-Young were beautiful examples!

    Beautiful work!!! Great job Jihye and Nan-Young! There is nothing easy about doing Kneeling Side Kicks properly (and with a 2-way stretch!!!), I admire your bravery and mighty strength in this tutorial. Mahalo Sandy! 🙂
