    I’m finding these really helpful. I have to do each class 3-5 times before I’m strong enough to move onto the next. I’m on class 4 now, and still finding my neck gets pretty tense during the rib cage lifts. Any tips? I think I may have to stay here for some time!

      Hi NSH, I’m glad you’re finding these helpful! I find these Pre-Pilates workouts to be harder than more ‘advanced’ movements because they force you to keep your alignment. So keep that in mind as you’re repeating them–you are building deep strength and correct alignment and it’s going to pay off big time in all that you do. Now about your neck–the best thing to do is to give it a rest when you notice it getting overly tense. The goal here is to get the upper ribcage muscles to strengthen and since you’re moving slowly and holding positions that force them to work, there’s going to be a point when they give up. I notice the same thing in my neck, it’s waaay better than when I started Pilates but that’s definitely a weak area for many of us so don’t be afraid to listen to your body and let it rest when needed. Keep up the great work! 🙂
