    The more I’ve found my ‘back body’ the better my Pilates has become recently. Think your teaching is going to revolutionise my Short Box & get me out of my Hip Flexors! Thanks. Keep the videos coming. Particularly like QuickTips format.

      @catedaviesThanks for checking out the new tip format. Remember you can’t shut off certain muscle groups. Everything is important to share the load. I use the front of my leg hip flexors and quads to lengthen my hamstring. Keep up the good work. mj
