Self Hands-On Tutorial

20 min - Tutorial


One of the wonderful things about taking class in person with a Pilates Instructor is the hands-on cues that you get. Kyria Sabin Waugaman teaches this tutorial to show you how you can use the same hands-on cuing on yourself to bring awareness to different parts of your body and more independence to practice outside of the studio. It is also a great way for teaches to cue their students, in having their students touch cue their own bodies to create more connection within their practice.

Wonderful tips and cues!
I love to share creative ways "in" to awareness of our own bodies. Placing a finger on the crown of your head reminded me of a fun technique I picked up from Marianne Ryan's "BABY BOD" book:

"Gently pull ONE HAIR from the crown of your head. Don’t tug or pull it out! All you have to do is to gently pull upwards and imagine that it is pulling up your spine. You should feel as if your spine is being gently lifted through the middle of your pelvis."

It always makes people laugh - it's fun and playful.
