March MATness 2014

All month long, Pilates instructors across the globe are participating in March MATness action. Each day, a new Pilates Mat exercise is featured and posted across social media. This is in hopes of encouraging a jumpstart to your daily mat practice!

“A practice in what will undoubtedly make you a stronger, suppler, healthier, and happier person. Promise!” – Benjamin Degenhartd, the creator of March MATness, and the founder and director of 360° Pilates™.

Today’s exercise is the Corkscrew:

Corkscrew

This is one of my personal favorites, though my clients might not share my enthusiasm. The Corkscrew adds in the obliques to the Roll Up (which comes earlier in the classical order), by rotating the legs on the way up and down, slightly circling the body.
