All four Pilates position - This video is part of the Pilates stretching series. The aim of the all fours position is to effectively stretch the body so that its flexibility is increased. This exercise helps in warming up the body and also improves the core strength and even helps while recovering from back injuries. The position of one's wrist during this exercise is critical as incorrect positioning can go on to cause undue stress and even injury. Another tip given by our expert Vesna Jacob is that while performing this exercise the toes should be kept tucked in. This helps in reducing the chances of the toes cramping during the workout!
