great class- - I love the continuity- and how you have incorporated reformer elements in the mat work- What are the pulses for at the end of the roll ups? Does this strengthen the ligaments in a healthy spine?
Thank you Phoebe. The pulses are simply to keep rhythm and stretch the hamstrings and lower back .Pilates liked to think of rhythm in his movements. One cannot strengthen the ligaments, but we can and must strengthen the muscles surrounding the spine.Pulses as well as static stretch, does that. Hope that answers your question! Thanks!
