I absolutely love a good backbend! When I am in Yoga class I cannot wait until wheel pose is announced. But, it took Pilates to teach me where I should really be working on. While I was young and flexible I was totally in my lower back. And, Pilates arches aka back extension is all about getting the longest extension possible. Not dumping into the lower back.
This week as Andrea Maida and I filmed our collaboration video for Youtube we both are taking on the topic of arches and back extension. You can check out my video here. And her’s here.
What back extension exercises do you have trouble with?
