In Pilates you will often hear the cue to close your ribcage which can lead to a rounding of the shoulders forward. In this video Peter demonstrates several exercises for training the stability of your shoulder girdle to engage and lengthen the mid-back and connect it to obliques and pelvis. Follow along and you’ll discover a new length in your upper back that will transform your posture and your practice. Don’t miss the conversation about Peter’s thoughts on teaching at the end. For lessons and Teacher Training visit Peter in New York City at The Pilates Shop and Yoga Garage.
