Here we have the Teaser. And it is an intermediate exercise, but kind of sums up all of Pilates. So it is about the end all Pilates exercise. It's going to be using your power house, for sure. But with soft, long, limbs, which is the most challenging thing.
So go ahead and lie down onto your back. Go ahead and bring your knees into your chest. And there's all kinds of different levels of teaser, but today we're just going to do Teaser One. We're going to take your legs to a 45 degree angle with the floor. A little bit lower.
There you go. Draw your powerhouse in and up. And reach your arms long in the opposite direction. Wonderful. Go ahead and start letting your arms and head.
And roll up to reach for your feet. Beautiful. Good. And take a breath. And I want you to exhale.
Roll away from your legs. wonderful. Reaching back. Good. Take a breath as you start.
Exhale all the way up to your feet. So the legs are long and loose, not gripping. And your power house is scooped in and up. Relaxing the shoulders. Beautiful.
And take a quick breath as you start rolling back. And exhale all the way down. Good. And I want you to do two more. Thinking about the Roll Up.
Rolling on up. Up. And reaching. Good. Taking a breath to start as if you're pulling a heavy weight back with your powerhouse.
And exhale all the way down. Reaching the arms. And let's do one more. Inhale to initiate. Exhale scooping in and up all the way forward.
Good. Inhale to start and exhale rolling away from the long, loose, legs. And go ahead and bend your knees in. And hug your knees in. And that was the Teaser.
