In this brief discussion, Simona shows how the curves of Joe Pilates' Spine Corrector fit with your body to correct your spine! By placing a skeleton over the apparatus, you can see where Joe's genius for understanding our anatomy and how gravity's effects on the body can be reversed for a healthy, tall spine. Filmed at Uptown Pilates on Mahattan’s Upper East Side. Visit Simona at her studio The Art of Control™ on the SUNY campus, Purchase New York.

        Hi Simone 👋🏼. Thankyou for your interest in presenting more sessions!
        In answer, I am interested in knowing more about the required positioning of the body / skeleton On the barrel. In different positions + why. Prone, supine, side lying. For example, what happens to alignment if the body is off centre or off the proper position in Swan?

    This is awesome! Please do more for a deeper understanding as to how Pilates impacts the whole body. I would love to see the same concept in relation to the mat, reformer, cadillac, and barrels systems. The visual of the skeleton is of great benefit to all teachers!
