The Teaser brings into play key elements of the movement of the human body: levers, the fulcrum, muscles and resistance. The levers are the bones, the fulcrum (or pivot point) are the joints, effort comes from the muscles and the resistance is from gravity. Understanding of these concepts helps with the execution of Pilates exercises. As you steadily work to cultivate a working understanding and really concentrate on establishing your body mind connection, you will gently ease into the perfect execution of many challenging Pilates exercises like the Teaser pictured here. .
