3 Ways To Improve Body Awareness in Pilates Using a Wall

teaching skills Dec 16, 2020

A wall is a fantastic tool to help your students build body awareness. Every studio and home has one, which makes it an accessible and no-cost teaching aid. You might need to rearrange your space a little or close doors to give you more "wall space" but the benefits are totally worth it. 

A wall gives your student a solid surface to push against which helps them connect to the feeling of opposition in exercises like Plank. It also creates awareness of whether parts of their body are moving or staying still. This feedback is often eye-opening and is an important step in improving the quality of their movements. 

This video will show how a wall can help teach awareness in these 3 exercises:

  1. Plank + Inverted V
  2. Side Balance / Side Kicks
  3. The Saw



Inside the membership, we have a whole chapter with Pilates exercises at the wall - including videos and tutorials - for example:

  • Opposite Arm and Leg Reach
  • Kneeling Lunge
  • Scooter
  • Squat
  • Figure 4
  • Tower
