Although the ladder barrel is standard in most Pilates studios, it's rarely the center of attention However, the perks of being on this piece are second to none. It is AMAZING!
When my clients hear me say “let’s go over to the barrel” I can hear a silent yelp of "ooh! yesss!” because they know they’re in for a treat. The ladder barrel has a supportive nature that is great for molding your body and stretching with the assistance of gravity.
Seeing the joy on my client’s faces when they’re on the ladder barrel gives me great pleasure.
When I moved my equipment to it's current location in Lihue, I was [selfishly] hesitant to bring it because I loved having it in my living room for a stretching session in front of the TV. ButI know without a doubt that having it at movin' on 2 wellness is exactly where it needs to be.
Don’t be fooled though, this piece isn’t just for stretching there is some awesome Pilates choreography, or should I say “core-eography” that will kick your tushie for sure.
