Jay Grimes learned Pilates originally with Joe Pilates himself and in this video he shares his tips on how it was taught to him. As his students Keon Moradi Means and Zareh Markarian show, it’s all about control! You’ll learn why it’s important to place your feet just so on the bar, what part of you moves the Reformer carriage and what parts stretch open and many more tips. Jay also shows two advanced variations (bar up and one arm off) plus a leg placement that can help people with tight hips achieve better alignment.
