Ready for a killer of a mat workout? Get your Pilates Reformer box out for a unique twist on the mat that allows for an increased range of motion that will wring out your waistline, slim your hips and elongate your entire body. Simona uses the box to enliven the mat with exercises normally done on apparatus for a fun, informative and extremely effective workout. Visit Simona at her studio The Art of Control at SUNY Purchase.

    So many great variations! I really felt like the box was helping to support and give feedback much like a teacher’s spotting in some exercises. Fantastic cues. I’m not sure I ever really thought about my femur and hip in going up front so clearly. I felt instantly more stable. Thank you!

    Referring to the SWAN variations which were performed nicely by the first practitioner in a good viewing position, who had nice ROM – named Mikela (SP) at the end! Possibly from a Dance background!
    It was good to see this “balance” of extension work.
