Pose Of The Week: The Hundred

Joseph Pilates always started his routine with The Hundred, which he considered a warm-up. I rather like to do the same. The Hundred pumps blood through the organs and does, indeed, warm the body. It stretches out the back, stabilises the torso and works the abs. Take your Supine Start position, making sure feet are in line with hip bones and that the spine is neutral. Breathe in, then out as you engage the pelvis and raise the right knee to Tabletop position. Do the same with the left knee. Join the knees. Breathe in, then exhale as you raise head, arms and shoulders together. Arms are at the top of the thighs. Now do five tiny beats with the arms on the in breath, five on the exhalation. S
