Pre-Pilates: Spinal Mobility & Strengthening – Bananas



Foundations: Spinal Mobility & Strengthening

Quick Intro: Bananas!

Go bananas this side bending exercise! 🙂

What’s it good for?

🌟 Spinal articulation and strengthening
🌟 Control and practising the side lying position.



A quick “how to”…


🌟 Begin by finding your neutral position by using the “pelvic pushes” from earlier.
🌟 Keep your heels together and inner thighs squeezed together so that your legs don’t separate!

Hints & Tips:

🌟 If you have difficulty with this exercise, try lifting alternately your legs then arms.
🌟 Think of reaching out rather that just lifting up your arm and legs.
🌟 Be careful not too curve forwards: maintain a neutral spine.  Don’t look at what your legs are doing – look straight ahead!
