Sherri, around minute nine you say, finding the right position of your back, go forward and back until the back muscles contract, did you mean -relax?
Hi Leslie,
I sure did mean relax! I can't believe I said contract! Thank you for listening so carefully and for commenting so that I could correct the error.

Excellent to observe the real time corrections of real clients, as opposed to confirmed pilates practioners (instructors). Loved your closing affirmations and the peaceful ambiance created.
Thank you Leslie!
