Pulling Straps with a Magic Circle on the Reformer | Online Pilates Classes

Pulling Straps on the #Reformer is an incredible teaching tool for so many Pilates exercises. For many though it’s hard to activate all parts of the legs. It’s easy to over use the seat, lock your knees or ankles. Adding a circle allows you to feel your inner thighs turn on, your inner hamstrings engage and you’re able to place more emphasis on the entire body. Try this Tuesday and then remove the circle and see what you learned. Let me know how it felt in the comments below.
