Pilates demonstrating Rolling Back (Rolling Like a Ball), Poses One to Four:


This exercise teaches you to control your balance and how to move your pelvis from your abdominals.
There are many variations – where holding feet or knees with ankles crossed and knees wide can change the emphasis.
Control the movement and your breathing throughout.

Slow, controlled movement are the optimum!
