Lovely clear instruction as ever Cara. I suppose you could use a theraband in the same way to support the head instead of a towel in the ab curl? Sarahx

 I actually used my thera  band as the towel for support and it worked great. Some great cues and exercises for folks that are still learning. Heck!  I’ve been doing Pilates from u20 years and this was a challenge for me even!  Got a love the fundamentals! Thank you !

This is great to get the spine moving, and the centering line is a great cue. Look forward to trying some of these movements out on clients. Thanks
