Stability Ball Pilates

This is a Ball pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 12095)

Love the ball and love Pilates! Put the two together and wow! What a combo! Take a seated position on ball. Walk forward let ball roll down spine until you can support your head neck & shoulders on ball. Your body should be like a table top. Hips, knees & ankles make a right angle. Position arms towards floor. Switch on those stabilisers! Shift your weight very slightly to the right and raise and extend left leg. Repeat both sides 6 - 8 times.

Beginners level- simply raise foot from floor

Intermediate - raise and extend leg to hip level, softly pointed toes.

Want More?- Raise and extend leg to ceiling softly pointed toes, attempt to draw small circles in the air! (pretty challenging, but achievable!)

One simple combo, three levels and more variation than I can fit on this page. Keep the ball rolling!!!!!!

Love to all from Sydney Australia

Ensure your participant or client has a set position before attempting the progressions. Get them to hold the supine bridge position, activate TVA, Multifidus, Pelvic Floor, Hamstrings and Butts. Avoid hyperextension in lumbar region.
