Pause for Pilates: Over Ball Balance Sequence

The Pilates over ball balance sequence provides a very effective way to help improve balance and the stability of the balance achieved.

The ball should be almost fully inflated ensuring the plug is fully inserted into the over ball.

By aiming to keep the spine tall and stable, the collar bones wide and the shoulders relaxed we are reinforcing our basic Pilates principles.

The various arm positions seen in the video clip take the body through various balancing challenges and we aim to increase the challenge by closing our eyes and holding the positions for an increased length of time.

The perfect way to improve our balance and have a little fun at the same time!
