Today I want to share one of my students journey. This is @thichapilates from Singapore. She came all the way out to Vegas to train for a few weeks. She's been taking sessions online with me since the very beginning of the year. We've been using my coaches @flexiblebodyart yoga ball method to help her work towards achieving a cheststand.

Thicha (now in her 40's ๐Ÿ˜ฎ) was a professional ballerina for many years now a Pilates-teacher instructor.

The top 2 photos are from some of our first sessions together. We had just started working in cheststand for the first time back in January 2017.

The bottom photos are from yesterday. Since coming to Vegas I've been able to give her an extra hand with her backbends and cheststands. Look at the difference!

I could not be more proud of this beautiful, hard working woman! She is fearless ๐Ÿ˜ I can't wait to see you again soon Thicha! You are such an inspiration to me and many others!

One of my favorite intro stretches for working towards needle scale wheather you're on the floor, on the pole or in the air!
Using the wall and work towards grabbing your ankle in a lungle position. If done correctly you should feel a deep stretch in the front side of the hip (of your back leg) as well as your abs, chest and shoulders.

Top 2 photos are examples of what to avoid.
-Front foot too far forward or too far back
- Sinking into lower back instead of lifting the chest up the length the from side of the body
- tilting your arms and weight toward one side of the body and/or twisting the torso
- Straining the neck by not relaxing the head back.

Bottom photo shows the correct position and why! Keep your back health, lift that chest, square those hips and shoulders, lengthen through the torso.
