Well I have to say that I love the attention to the anatomical details so that the body can do what it's designed to do. Thank you so much Tom. I hope you have more to come on other pieces of equipment with respect to better gait.

Really enjoyed this class. The hinging glute work followed by the bridge felt amazing on my back and glutes. I intend to incorporate those combined movements into many of my workouts. Thank you!!
I too appreciate your detailed anatomical details. You’re cueing was spot on. Could feel sit bones widening and narrowing. Feel amazing after doing this. Thank you Tom! Oh and I loved your version of sidearms .
I enjoyed the cueing and simplicity of this class! Thank you!
Thank you for this wonderful informative class. Really do feel the difference in my body when done.
Really great, Tom--you get me thinking about it all in a new way. Thank you!
Tom, that was amazing. I have been teaching Pilates for 15 years and have taken a lot of continuing ed workshops all over the US from many different teachers/programs/methods. I loved this. Made me think about these exercises very differently. Now that I'm in my 50s and had a total knee replacement a little over a year ago, my primary focus has been alignment before I even think about movement. Moving with so much precision was hard work; I felt it everywhere and was actually sweating at one point. I'm sure Amy and Sara would concur.

Wow, again, amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us.
