Pilates Stretches for Lower Back and Legs

Gaining and maintaining flexibility becomes more of a challenge as we age, but it’s not impossible. Flexibility adds to our mobility and joint health, so we must make stretching a priority, and Pilates is the way to go.

Join Susannah Cotrone, a teacher with Mari Winsor Pilates, to stretch your lower back and the backs of the legs. If you’re sitting in a chair or standing most of the day these are the areas that need the most attention. You’ll improve flexibility, stave off injury and increase your comfort level in day-to-day activities.
