Keep your mind on Pilates. Keep your body toned…and try single leg lowering/alternating legs

Exercise of the week!

This exercise improves hip mobility and strengthens the core.

Starting Position: Lie flat on your back with your arms at your sides and both legs extended and closed towards the ceiling over your hips.

Execution: Keeping one leg straight, slowly lower your other leg down to the floor as much as your core allows  in order to avoid lordosis or flat back. Return to the starting position and repeat with your other leg.

Attention! In case you find difficulty in keeping your legs straight up, place a folded towel under your hips to relieve your stiff hamstrings and slightly bent your knees.
