Flat Back- Imprinting

1 min - Exercise


Imprinting is a technique attributed to "First Generation Teacher" Eve Gentry. It is a technique that focuses on the movement of the bones rather than the muscles. The concept of Imprinting is often used to help lengthen the spine along the mat such that there is no space between your body and the mat. This technique is most closely associated with the Classical Style of Pilates.
