Minimal/No time wasted for equipment set up Like the Pilates Matwork, there are no set-ups required when practising on the Spine Corrector – no straps, no springs. This allows for a non-stop session with minimal or no time required for changing the equipment set up for different exercises, allowing for a more challenging and continuous workout. COURSE OUTLINE – Learn exercises to STRENGTHEN and STRETCH the Front line, Back line and Side lines of the body for a complete core program – Understand how to work on the Spine Corrector correctly for optimal Spinal Articulation – Understand the common mistakes when practising on the Spine Corrector and how to prevent/correct them
