Pilates Quick-Fix: Series of 5

With the New Year upon us and Winter setting in, most of us tend to get busy and stay busy until spring. 

So over these winter months, I'll be sharing a few videos that I've called the "Pilates Quick-Fix." Each video contains a quick sequence you can add to your tool belt to maintain strength, boost your energy and give your body a quick tune-up.

It's short, sweet, and it will work. you. out.  

Today's quick fix:: 'The series of 5' abdominal exercises from the classical mat repertoire. 

Boom! How did that feel? 

Have a beautiful day.

                             Aloha,

This is truly one of my favorite mat exercises for so many reasons. If you're feeling this exercise, let me know in the comments below.
