Pilates Scissors

  • Begin lying on your back with knees bent, feet planted to the floor. Bring your knees in to your chest, rolling your hips off the ground to then rest on your shoulders.
  • Cup the sides of your hips with your hands, with your elbows directly under each hip.
  • Extend and your hips and knees to make a long diagonal with your legs together.
  • Scissor your legs apart from each other, pulse the legs twice in this open position, and then switch legs, taking care to keep your hips stable with only your legs moving. Switch to the other side then repeat.
