We asked some of our clients what their favorite Pilates exercises are.  Here are a few of their responses.

Bridging... because it helps my lower back and stretches my back all along the spine. - Nancy

Short spine on the reformer and rolling like a ball.  Both exercises give a great core/ all body working helping with stability.  Rolling like a ball also helps with balance.  I also love the plank.  It works everything especially is moving while holding the plank.- Kathy

Jumping! Great cardio workout.  And short spine because it stretches my entire body, releases stress, and improves breathing. - Laura

Pull Ups / Elephant on the chair because it's very challenging and makes me feel strong. - Vonda

I like leg circles because you have to stay in control while you move through the circle and it's simple but always challenging.  And I like single leg work because it helps me be more aware of being out of balance or alignment. Gives me something to work on in my head- Kathy

Short spine feels great but the teaser will be if I can ever nail it. - Melissa
