These core videos are amazing. I have been mystified in pilates and exremely frustrated. Now I have a base to build upon. I just wasn’t understanding my teacher saying pull the b line in, and therefore have been struggling in class. Thank you and I plan to practice with these tutorials in an effort to build my yoga and pilates to a most safe practice. You are the best!
When you say the core should be activated at 50%, is that at anytime of doing core exercises and practicing yoga? I've heard many times in classes where we are told to push as hard as possible.
