Pilates Video Part Deux

Posted in Pilates by Meghan Pickrell on August 19, 2011

Here’s my second video of the week! We’re on a roll people. In this video I have the lovely and talented Linnea, performing an ensemble of moves on the cadillac with the leg springs. She is quite inspiring to watch (even for me, I must say) because she transfers her weight so nicely. We’ve been working together for a few years so she has a good feel for the apparatus.

The leg springs are a wonderful tool to suspend the body in space, support the legs and give some resistance to the hamstrings and glutes. They can be used for traction (lengthening) or to take up the slack (supporting) in the hip joints. Enjoy!
