If your back ever feels achy or stiff and you have a blanket that can be rolled up, you’ll definitely want to check out the exercise in today’s video.
Whenever I feel any kind of discomfort in my upper back creeping in—like the tension from sitting at the computer or standing for a long time prepping food in the kitchen—I stop whatever I’m doing to practice the exercise you’ll learn in today’s video.
It’s a quick and effective way to reset your body and prevent yourself from getting locked up in the positions you spend the most time in; plus, it just feels FANTASTIC.
All you need is a blanket you can roll up or a yoga bolster.
After you check it out and give it a try, I’d love to know how it feels for you. You can tell me in the comments below.

Here’s what one member recently shared with me about what she’s discovered about her alignment and her feet:
“I would like to comment on one change I have noticed in myself—pressing my weight into my heels. This is a position I avoided in my lifetime because I didn’t want to cause Plantar Fasciitis. I used to lean forward—also, trying to go faster caused me to lean forward.
One day, I returned home from my walk (working on my heel weight), and I noticed I was going barefoot again in the house. For years (at least 15) I needed slippers to pad the balls of my feet because at 87 years, I thought I lost the protective fat in them.”~ Pilates Tonic Online Member
That’s not a typo—at 87 years young, this PTO member is going barefoot again!
