Pilates Exercise Instructions:
In a neutral position while lying on your back, position your legs in a table top 90 degree angle. Lift your head and shoulders off the mat until your shoulder blades barely touch the mat. Try not to flatten your lower back completely and keep a tiny space under it. The lower abs are supposed to stabilize this area. Straighten both legs up then lower one leg down. Grab the leg that is up with both hands, switch legs and then grab the other leg. Inhale and grab the right leg then exhale and grab the left leg. Repeat 6 times and reverse. Inhale and grab the left leg then exhale and grab the right leg. Repeat 6 times.
