The Course of this Class : The Hundred, it isn’t the easiest or most intuitive exercise and yet it is at the heart of all Pilates exercises! In this How To tutorial, Kristi will cover 3 main things breaking down the hundred: 1) The head and chest lift froward; 2) The breath; and 3) The pelvic floor and abdominals. Remember, you don’t need to have any equipment for this tutorial, Kristi is simply showing it on the Reformer. We hope that after this “how to” you will feel not only more confident, but also more at ease in performing this difficult exercise. Though difficult, it is INCREDIBLY effective, so don’t avoid practicing it! If you want flat abs, yes, this exercise repeated frequently, we promise, will dramatically help!
Pilates depends on certain technical foundations, understanding these better will set you up for success in your practice; protect you from injuring yourself; as well as teach you the best alignment your body can achieve! Plus, practicing with the right form, you’ll get A TON more out of the exercise, your level will increase quickly if you stick to it, and so will your results!
