Good Class from Alexandria. A wall (or stable vertical surface) is a great prop. There were 2 challenges for me: 1) I don't have a free wall (so I modified with an old flat faced bureau & a post. 2) I am not flexible enough to roll up with my legs raised (so I modified with by wearing leg weights or hooking my toes under a slightly opened drawer in the bureau). I had fun, got a nice workout, and feel much better. Thanks Alexandria:)

That was a great and informative class. I felt that my posture was much improved. Cueing and attitude was excellent. Looking forward to future classes.

I wasn't sure whether at the beginning of the class when you were prepping for the Hundred etc - whether you had imprinted your spine on the ab prep or remained in Neutral spine - you seemed to indicate NOT imprinting at the beginning but then referred to pressing your lower back into the mat - can you confirm which position you were using? Many thanks!

Phenomenal class, a real gift.  My students sometimes view the wall as a variation for weaker individuals, but you showed us the TRUE strength (not to mention flexibility and awareness) required to utilize it as a prop.  I can't wait to integrate some of these technique into my training of the disabled and chronically ill. Thank you, Alexandra -- I look forward to studying with you via the remaining classes in this series.

Great class. Thank you.  The wall closes the chain, gives you feedback and helps you connect.  It made me work harder.

Great cuing that I can use for my recuperation and for when I teach class.  How would you offer this to individuals with low bone density, osteopenia, all of whom are at risk of compression fracture from forward spinal flexion? Thank you.

I enjoyed the class, which I did after your second class. In the side kicks are you in a straight line head to toes or are hips to feet forward at a slight angle from the hips to head.

This is a great series. I'm doing it out of order :) Started with the second one. I'm getting back into Pilates after a long period doing yoga and this is the perfect series to get me thinking and feeling Pilates again. Thanks!
