Yogic Principles Outside the Studio
Many instructors, Nutritionists and Personal Trainers complain that -- at best -- their clients train with them one hour at a time. So, when the client asks for help with their diet, what happens the remaining 23-hours is the client's responsibility.
But clients can gain more support from each other -- becoming kayana mitra or auspicious friend in sanskrit -- their studio, and their community.
Some clients need instructors to focus on those hours outside the gym or studio to emotionally empower them with tools, in an effort to mentally and spiritually train them to help themselves.
And practicing Yogic principles outside the studio can help with willpower, creating space the client needs. This form of spirituality -- even just practicing breathing or pranayama -- compliments the Pilates practice and creates space in life's everyday circumstances as well.
Clients and Instructors can integrate Yogic Pranayama into their practice inside and outside the studio, providing balance and stability for both the instructor and the client.

Back Extensions on Reformer
Back extension exercises are useful for most clients -- from dancers to clients with MS or injuries -- and can be performed on equipment such as the Reformer, Wunda Chair and Cadillac or on a Mat.
Clients with previous back injuries benefit from the Back Extension by finding and strengthening their Multifidus -- which runs along the spine -- in addition to strengthening and stabilizing muscles such as the abdominals, latissimus dorsi and gluteals.
The Pilates -- Back Extension -- shows how each Pilates exercise works the entire body.
