Dear New Subscriber,
Welcome to the subscriber area of the Michael Miller Pilates. It's a mess. Well, really not a mess, just one long file that has been added to over time. So, if you want the best historical perspective of what you have just gained access to, I would go to the bottom and work your way up. (because the most recent additions are on top)
Much of the "subscriber area" is still defined by intermediate and advanced exercises, and anything related to them, like blog entries. So, after (or not) you've worked your way through this file, going to What's New from my home page will take you to where all the recent activity has been. And if you're still digging for what's out there you might go to the old menu (Home/Old Home) and work through the stack of entries there.
Welcome. Remember that my message is that pilates is a very specific idea. As you knock around this site be on the lookout for insights to that message.
Okay, have fun!
Here is a point about why square hips are so important to strive for--stability of the axis affects stability of rotation, which affects the movement.
The low chair arranged according to the idea of uniform eccentric loading flowing through progressive patterns of movement is here.
