Movement: Lift arm closest to pulleys up and over, maintaining a hip connection to carriage for a deeper side body stretch. Then rotate upper body, placing both arms on foot bar and extend carriage, dropping head and shoulders for a full body stretch.
Certified Pilates instructor Lori Bevering demonstrates a workout for a unique fitness experience using a Reformer machine. For each step, maintain an engaged core, neutral spine, relaxed and stabilized shoulders and focus on exhaling during the exertion phase of the exercise.
