Very good
Appreciate the 3 different versions. When I started on my reformer 6 months ago, this move was impossible. Happy to say, I can do it now but can only achieve a straight up position. Still unable to bend my legs over my head. I hope that comes with more practice and spinal flexibility. At age 68, I'm loving the strength and flexibility I've gained practicing Pilates.

Beautiful tutorial Diane, Laura looked amazing. But is it just me or where did Laura get that awesome body suit?

Thank you for the various versions of this exercise.
I loved the compare and contrasting of the different variations or versions. As a teacher, its always good to keep the different options in our back pockets and as you said, always have intentions behind our choices. 
It was so great to learn more ways to do the short spine stretch. I especially loved learning more about Ron Fletcher's creative and practical choices.

I really enjoyed seeing the similarities and differences between the different versions of the same movement! The intention of each variation is different, but all continue in a beautiful flow and stretch.

Romana's was much quicker movement in comparison to Fletchers which was more about stretch and articulation. I also liked how the second Fletcher variation had the earlier core initiation for the roll up like Romana's. I feel that adds a new challenge along with the diamond shape legs lowering for the hamstrings work and glutes.
