Hi Deborah: so now your comment in a previous tutorial makes sense. You remarked that when supine and legs come up to say a table top, that the tail bone will naturally curl in reaction to the upper thoracic coming into flexion. This comes full circle to the notion of "neutral" pelvis. Can you speak to that because I think there is so much confusion around that notion everywhere.
Niedra Gabriel did you learn new and important things from all the classes you took with Ms Deborah Lessen on PilatesAnytime? You can answer the question posed by the four previous submissions, as you demonstrated!
Hi all- I can only answer briefly at this moment. Hundred is a FLEXION exercise. If the whole spine is in flexion, the tail will be off the mat(or at least not weight-bearing). We do not want to segment the spine, therefore we should not flex the upper spine and leave the pelvis in neutral. xxx
I hasten to add that I intended no disrespect Ms Lessen whatsoever, and was only quoting what it says in "Return to Life" namely, "Lift both feet about 2" above the mat or floor, and "Raise the head with eyes focused on the toes". It was most kind of you to reply. I am intrigued by your work Madam.
