A Quick Guide to Single Spine Stretch Forward



Joe Pilates on …

💡 Engage your abdominals to lift your pelvis off your legs: imagine someone is pressing onto the top of your head, reach up to press their hand away.⁠
💡 Reach your legs long through your heels! And then Stretch your spine over your long legs.⁠
💡 Keep your abdominals pulled in and imagine that same prickly cactus we rolled over in the Standing roll Downs – it’s back here again!⁠
💡 Imagine your sit bones are two inverted mountain peaks. Sit right n the top of them without falling off the back!⁠
💡 Focus on sitting up tall and long. If you can’t manage to sit on your sit bones, bend your knees slightly to find them.⁠
💡 Can’t sit on your sit bones? Bend your knees slightly


Joe Pilates on the Mind / Body Connection


💬  “By reawakening thousands and thousands if otherwise dormant muscle cells, Contrology correspondingly reawakens thousands and thousands of dormant brain cells, thus activating new areas and stimulating the functioning of the mind.” – He was eighty years ahead of his time!⁠
