March Matness Day 6: Single Leg Stretch

The Single Leg Stretch

I like to do Pilates when I travel.  Mostly because each area and each studio has a unique way of teaching Pilates.  I love to feel the differences with the similarities.   I bring this up because teacher I visited a couple years back, gave me a way of thinking about the single leg stretch which I hadn’t thought of before.   She said (these are my words paraphrasing what she actually said) “ Joe wasn’t about pretty, so when you pull your knee to your chest, feel the thigh bone in the hip socket and deepen the thighbone connect, then reach it out, opening at the hip.”  

Primary Focus:  Supporting the torso

Secondary Focus:  Thigh bone movement in the hip socket
