If you’re a teacher looking for a better understanding of how to address your client’s individual needs, this video is for you! Sandy’s client John Dalcin is back to show off his progress since his last visit to Pilatesology 3 years ago (check out his earlier video Real Men Do Mat). In the time since we saw him last, John has gotten a hip replacement and is currently recovering from a shoulder injury so you’ll see Sandy’s adjustments to his body. Today’s workout begins on the Reformer and includes specific exercises on the Cadillac and Foot Corrector, focused on improved posture. Filmed at Vintage Pilates in West Los Angeles, CA.
