Alycea shares a brilliant teaching tool for getting your body into the correct position to rock the High Scissors. This prep exercise builds the muscles you need in your low belly to bring your hips out and away from your head so your legs can stretch fully. Grab a partner and scissor it out! Visit Alycea at Real Pilates in New York City where this session was filmed.

    I never have enough of Alycea’s teaching:) I have been watching The Pilates Hacks series all over again and again. It is just a must for each instructor! What I have been noticing in Poland is that the instructors give up on many classical, hard and demanding exercises in favour of some semi-pilates, ballet- kind of stuff or just fitness- like kind of poses. That’s why many Polish people are taught Pilates wrong in first place, thus keep such a completaly untrue image of what Pilates really is. Thank You Alycea:) Bless You Alisa and Jack for enabling me having access to this Real Source.
