Another Friday means another new Pilates exercise to get fit!

The Spine Stretch Forward works the powerhouse, articulates the spine,  and promotes good posture while focusing on the breath:

1.  Begin sitting as tall as you can with your legs a little wider than hip width apart and your feet flexed back. Your arms should be extended long, parallel to the floor.

2.  Take a deep breath in and bring your chin to your chest. As you exhale deeply, curl into yourself as if the top of your head is reaching to the floor.

3.  When you have no air left in your lungs, deeply inhale and begin reversing the motion. Pull your abdominals in and curl back up to a tall seated position finding your best posture.

 

 *repeat sequence 3 to 5 times
