Amazing tutorial thank you
WHAT. WAS. THAT. This showed me weaknesses I never knew I had and totally is going to change my hips! Thank you Tom, you're a genius!
Really great visual tutorial thanks. Very useful cues around the obliques and also loved the stretches at the end:)
Thank you Tom! Great visuals! Is there a reason in Pilates we keep the over 90 angle at the knee? I would like to see more functional movement like this it’s so helpful! I’ve watched all your videos. Thanks again!
At around 8:30 minutes in, when they pick up the wheels and Tom McCook  says "the illia is the whole pelvic half" doesn't that also include the ischium and the pubic bone on the side you're working with? Any comments are appreciated.
Hi Maggie, Yes each pelvic half includes the ilia, ischia (sitbone) and the pubis on each side. For the image of the wheels, I was referring to the pelvic half as the ilia without labeling all of the points for brevity. Thanks for checking in and all the best!!
