Mermaid on the Wunda Chair

We #love the #pilateswundachair.

Here is #seatedmermaid on the chair.  This exercise is great for #openingwaistlines to increase #breathing and #mobilityofribs.  When there is more space in the #waistlines our #obliques (a huge muscle in #coresupport) can activate better. 

My head should move with my spine as I flex and extend. I am on 2 light springs high.

What is the Wunda Chair?

Though the basic design is simple, the Wunda Chair differs from its cousin the reformer in both its size and the support it gives.  Because the base of support on the Chair is so much smaller than the reformer, it requires a great sense of integration throughout your entire body.    Exercises are done lying, sitting, and standing on the chair, as well as from positions to the sides of the chair.  One can expect a lot of stability and flexibility work on the chair. It is truly a testament to the ingenuity of the Pilates method to see how many exercises can be done on it.
