Join MeJo for a Pilates Wunda Chair workout that is all about finding your Powerhouse and using it until you practically float right off the pedal. Her cues make aligning your body properly a clear and simple task, while she guides you through a lesson in control, stability and length. She uses a Wunda Chair made by Gratz Pilates and describes her spring changes throughout. If you own a different type of chair, you can adjust your springs accordingly based on her descriptions. For MeJo’s teaching and workshop schedule, visit her at: www.MeJoWiggin.com.

    That was brilliant! I for the first time really understand teaser and spine stretch forward on the chair now. Thank you!

    Wow! I always loved the wunda chair, but love it even more now! Thank you Mejo for your amazing attention to the detail within bodies! This was wonderful and I plan to watch it over and over.

    Another great session with MeJo. Cuing on spine stretch forward was especially illuminating!

    Thank you so much, Mejo. You make me excited to do Pilates and to teach it. SO many wonderful cues! We are often taught such rigid ways of approaching Pilates (all arm movements are on 1 middle spring, legs are on 1 high 1 low). I never agreed that a 95lb woman should be on the same springs as a 165lb man. So wonderful to experience Pilates ALIVE!

    Absolutely brilliant, Mejo! I learned so much from this video, and your clear, concise explanations. Andrea, now that I know what you can do – – – !

    Great cueing & detailed instruction on each exercise. I especially enjoyed the way that you addressed imbalances.

      Thanks Karen I’m glad you enjoyed it. The wunda chair is a fabulous way to address imbalances. The beauty of this video is that I never taught Andrea before. Nothing was rehearsed and I just continued to teach and correct the body that was in front of me. SHE was amazing!

    Great tips on how to really get the most out of some of the basic wundachair repertoire.
    I recommend Mejo to all my students and look forward to seeing her in England in September.

      Thank you Miranda! It was wonderful to see you again in London. I’m glad you came and made it to the Wunda Chair Class that Pilatesology filmed. I’m sure it will be up real soon! xo

    Mejo, this was a wonderful class – I learned just as much watching the video as I did participating in the filming! OMG my chest was open and I was bending to the side! *gasp*
    Thank you so much – you have such a warm fuzzy demeanor that kicks your ass at the same time. Now I need to do this workout again as well 🙂

  14. Ynowak 7 years ago

    Loved all the single arm focus. Quick question…when teaching someone with a weaker side, I was taught to work the weaker side first, then the stronger side and then back to the weaker side again. Have you found it helps to work the weaker side twice, or is just once sufficient? Thank you.

    That was a nice way to use the chair to work on an imbalance. Great workout Andrea and great teaching MeJo!
