Pilates Saw

WAC Pilates Instructor Danielle Ortiz demonstrates the Pilates Saw. This exercise increases rotational mobility, improves flexibility, and advances hip stability.

Sit with legs wider than your mat. Flex your feet and direct your toes and knees toward the ceiling.

Lift your arms to shoulder-height and straighten them out to either side. Inhale, twist your torso, and reach your left hand to your right foot. Exhale, stretch your right arm back, and aim your nose toward your knee.

Inhale, roll up, and move back to center. Exhale. Switch sides and repeat. Complete at least three times on each side.
