During the Fall Quarter of 2003 a group from Wellworks had a wonderful introduction to Beginning Pilates every Saturday morning. On the last day of class we asked Kris to run through the sequence so that I could photograph it. This way we could recall and practice the exercises before starting the Intermediate Class following the winter break.
The sequence always starts with The Hundred as a warmup, followed by the following set:
|Roll Up (3)||Single Leg Circles (5)||Rolling Like a Ball (6)|
This is followed by the "Sequence of Five" leg stretches:
|Single Leg Stretch (5-8)||Double Leg Stretch (5-8)||Single Straight Leg Stretch (5)||Double Straight Leg Stretch (5)||Criss Cross (5)|
At this stage, totally exhausted, we relax with the...
After catching our breaths, we "Navel to Spine" again and do the following four:
|Open Leg Rocker (6)||Corkscrew (3)||Saw||Neckpull|
This is followed by a sequence of various Sidekicks (on both sides, of course):
|Front & Back Sidekick||Up & Down, Circles||Lower Leg Up&Down,Circles|
The Single Leg Teaser is a difficult one - but the end is sweet and a lot of fun...clic-clic-clic...clic-clic-clic...
Don't forget - 24/7 - Navel to Spine!
