Join Dr. Ruby and Cassandra Ruby as they teach you how to use the PHI Pilates Duckie to teach pelvic stability.
The Science of Pilates by: Shirley Archer JD – IDEA Fitness Journal – September, 2019
Join Dr. Chrissy Ruby to learn Pilates based exercises to balance the length and strength of the Latissimus Dorsi using the wall, the reformer and the Pilates ring.
The PHI Pilates Duckie is a wonderful tool for teaching a client to find and maintain pelvic neutral. Just place the foam wedge under the coccyx and use it as a proprioceptive tool so that the client can feel when they are in pelvic neutral.
Happy New Year!!
As always I am sending out the annual New Year’s wish and a video clip to add to your exercise library. With this clip, I am introducing my new blog where I hope to share ideas with you all year long!
In this video clip I am sharing an exercise to assist in balancing force couples opposing latissimus dorsi to maintain good standing posture. I have had great success with this exercise in correcting muscle imbalance and teaching healthy movement patterns with my clients who attend with diagnosis of lumbar or cervical spinal stenosis, shoulder impingement, and lumbar disc herniation, and revealing postural problems involving hyperlordosis, sway back posture, rounded shoulders and hyperkyphosis.
I wish you a very happy 2016 and hope to see you here in the blog this year.
