Pilates Class 367
A standing warm up/ workout that starts with some traditional variation using the Hand Weights and then progresses to some less familiar exercises that challenge our posture and spinal movement. You can do the class without the hand weights or grab 2 bottles of water (1/2 litter)

A great warm up workout with some interesting variations on traditional exercises! Love it!
A very useful and effective 10 minutes. Good flow.
Great session! The cues are very helpful. Thanks.
That makes sense. thanks
Hi I have a question. In this class the instructor says to put the weight in the heels. what is the reason for this?
Is it to counter balance the lift of the weights?
As he says it before the weight is lifted?

Hi Tracy. Thanks for your question. I believe the answer is in Benjamin's cue "stamp the heels down to lift yourself up". Benjamin is trying to get people to not get over focused on the arms... and be more focused on the whole body experience and the awareness to posture and alignment of the spine. I hope this helps and that you enjoyed the class. Best Amit
