The Pilates Roll Up ๐Ÿงก

Mid way through winter session 2021, many of my new Pilates students are trying to conquer the Roll Up for the first time (and doing a wonderful job at it!)
I truly believe from person experience and having taught Pilates for more than 13 years the Roll Up is the #1 most frustrating exercises in mat Pilates. And also everyone wants to do it perfectly on their first try. I mean, common, it LOOKS so easy. I try to make sure my students have FUN learning to roll up while eliminating these cheats!

In this second video Pilates elder, Lolita San Miguel, who studied with Joseph Pilates himself, demonstrates this exercise beautifully. 
Breathing! Concentration! Control! Centering! Flow! Precision!
