Dimensions Of Difficulty

5/9/2024
The difficulty of every Pilates exercise can be adjusted in three dimensions: strength, flexibility, and coordination. As teachers, we can manipulate the variables of lever length, base of support, equipment settings, exercise complexity, and range of motion to make exercises more or less challenging to meet our clients' needs. I was just chatting with my British friend about this, so every time I say "lever," it's "lee-ver" not "leh-ver," because I like the long e sound. I want to hear from you!
