Teaching Tip of the Week: Preparations for Mid-back/ Supine Arm Series

Ruth Ruttan is the Education Coordinator for Retrofit Pilates in Toronto, Canada, a Master Instructor specializing in Pre & Postnatal Pilates and a Birth & Postpartum Doula. Each week Ruth shares tips, tools and reminders for Pilates instructors and students with the intention of keeping us inspired, asking questions and always seeking to improve our teaching and our Pilates practice.

Preparations for Mid-back/ Supine Arm Series

This little set helps clients find where they should “feeling” the work of arms in straps (shoulder hurdle and core!) Have the clients put pressure into the straps as if they were going to move the straps. Let them know they want to feel this in the underside of their arms/ arm pits, lats and the inner core. As they lift the legs they should feel all the work transfer there! You can do any of the stability preparations or leg choreography from the abdominal series here to further challenge your clients!
