Shoulder Stabilisation, Pilates Technique : Pilates Lifestyle





A Pilates technique to learn how to engage postural muscles in the upper back necessary for improving posture and releasing tension in the neck.

Technique Visualisation:
Visualise a pencil on your spine. As you contract the shoulder blades try and squeeze the pencil.

Technique Watch Points:
Keep the shoulders away from your ears. The muscle focus is the upper back. Keep squeezing the shoulder blades in towards the spine and down into a ‘V’ position. Become aware of how these muscles move and role of the shoulder blades for good posture.
