It is important to find the correct starting position before you commence your Pilates exercises.
The postures can be incorporated into your everyday life and will re-educate your body to find the neutral alignment that will make your movement more efficient.
Lie on your back with your knees bent. Your feet should be hip width apart. Feel the heels of the feet, big toes and little toes in contact with the floor.
Place a cushion or towel under your head.
Relax your body so that your head is resting on the support, your shoulders are melting down towards the floor, and your rib cage resting against the floor.
Lengthen the neck by imagining a piece of string attached to the crown of the head and drawing it toward the wall, but do not lift the head from your support.
