I’m Diane Clark the owner of Pilates with Diane. I’ve been practising Pilates for 10 years. I started attending Pilates classes at my local Leisure Centre as well as working out in the Gym and going swimming. After only a few sessions I was “hooked” on Pilates and haven’t looked back since.
Every week I’ll be bringing you a new exercise that you can try.
This week- Roll- Backs
Roll-Backs mobilise the spine also strengthening the abdominals & the lower back. You are also stretching out the outer thigh & hamstrings when you carry out the leg-lifts.
This is an intermediate level exercise that can be done with or without the Pilates ball in the small of the back
1 Sit up with a straight back and knees bent with abs engaged.
Inhale and bring arms out at shoulder height.
Keep feet on the floor and a small space between the chin and the collar bone.
5 Exhale and slowly return to position 1.
Diane teaches Pilates classes in Harbury, Ufton, Southam and Leamington. If you’d rather have Personal (1:1) Pilates tuition then contact Diane for more details.
