Although there is a certain technique when doing every single Pilates move, but I have seen and worked with many people and they try to move their body or compensate with another muscle in their body. Body awareness is huge with Pilates and I’m not surprised with how many people struggle with this.
I continue to work with people that have been training in an array of different sports or physical activities, they walk in and after a thorough Pilates session they are shocked with the weaknesses they have in their body.
Placement of the hands is important to ensure the proper alignment of the shoulder, when the hands are positioned incorrectly the movement of the exercise will be compromised.
