Week 4 of Fall 2020 Semester! We’re using a couple props: a book no more than 2” thick and a chair to help you balance.

For most exercises: You do You when it comes to Neutral feet/legs or Pilates V feet/legs.  I’ll let you know when you MUST do neutral. This week, we’re doing 2×4 footwork on the book – waaaay harder than w/o the book! Also: standing side leg work, with a focus on how to make exercises “closed kinetic chain.”
