For this workout, Kara uses a long pole for a few of the exercises to help illustrate how to twist from the waist. You can use a towel or a broomstick or simply use Kara’s example to deepen the work. Kara’s attention to the important details of form is key to her beautiful execution, and practicing with her makes even the most basic exercises feel like a transformative experience. She adds several fun, energizing variations from Romana in the leg kicks series and completes almost the entire mat in a quick ½ hour. This class was filmed at Kara Wily Pilates in Los Angeles.
