Wow that was fun and challenging. Going to try some of these moves on my class. Thanks for being so creative! Hope to see you back!
Thank you Denee and Joni. I'm so glad you enjoyed the class and felt inspired.
Hi Monica. Thank you for your comment. Yes, some people do feel sensitive to the pressure. The harder your roller, the more sensitive it may feel. Possibly try laying a yoga mat or cushy Pilates mat over your roller for those seated exercises and see if it helps. Let me know how it goes :)

What a great class! Loved your cues. It was a great combination of mindful stretches and then using that length to do the work from a better place. Loved it!

Thank you Jacquie. Yes, one of my mentors, Jennifer Stacey, MS, often worked with this concept of preparing the body to succeed. I like the balance of sometimes working this way and doing some work before the work and other times just sticking to Pilates and finding it through the exercises.
Thank you Karina....I have to admit, I had to google for a translation.....(Entertaining, fun. Loved !!!! Congratulations). I love that you loved it ;)
