Pilates Exercises for Lumbar Flexion

As we move throughout our daily life, we need to be able to safely move the spine in all directions. In the Programming & Sequencing chapter of the Pilates Encyclopedia, you’ll find a list of exercises that move the lumbar spine into flexion.

The biggest benefit of lumbar flexion is the activation of the abdominal wall by bringing pubic bone and navel closer together as well as lengthening of the iliopsoas, which often acts as compensation muscle for abdominal strength.

Here are a few to get you started:


  • Bridging


Trapeze Table
  • Tower


  • Short Spine


  • Tendon Stretch


Spine Corrector
  • Roll over
