“Teaser on the Chair ... With a Twist”

This exercise works core and balance big time! You also get a nice chest stretch and a delicious twist! We are using the Balanced Body Exo chair and classical Wunda Chair with one spring on a light to medium setting. We do the first set with hooked feet ... then move to table top ... and then with straight legs in Teaser!

  1. 1.Start sitting tall near the front edge of the chair.

  2. 2.Bring arms up and then behind to find the pedal.

  3. 3.Lean back to a flat spine (or extend into swan - being careful not to pop the ribs or compress the low back)

  4. 4.Perform a small round up 4x. On the fifth one, release the pedal with both arms at the same time, roll up, and balance in teaser on top of the chair!

  5. 5.Repeat with a twist to each side - lift first, twist the torso, lean back and place one hand on the pedal - the other is reaching away from your center. Keep the opposite hip down!
