Increase or Decrease the Range of Motion of the Pilates Chair Pedal


Many students have a hard time keeping their sagittal alignment during exercises like Footwork on the Chair. Sometimes, limiting the motion to a range that the student can control makes all the difference in keeping good alignment. In this case, a pedal stopper can come to the rescue! Don't have a pedal stopper? You're out of luck! Just kidding... a yoga block or a moon box also works really well. 

Perhaps you are taller than the average person? Try placing the moon box on top of the chair to increase the range of motion. 

In this video, we'll take a look at how you can use a stopper, yoga block, and moon box to increase or decrease the range of motion on the Chair according to what you or your student needs.
