How to do a Teaser in Pilates?



The Teaser is a Classical Pilates exercise. Similar to the calisthenic V-ups or "Frankies." The Teaser is performed after the Sidekick Series. This exercise challenges balance and core stability. Begin by lying on your back, knees bent into chest. Lift head and shoulders while extending legs to 45 degrees. Keeping the legs out, lift the arms to parallel the legs. Roll up like you're trying to sit, then roll back down and lower legs. This exercise can also be performed on the Reformer, Wunda Chair, Cadillac, Tower, or with a Magic Circle. Beginners can start with knees bent and feet on the Mat and work on extending one leg at a time. Advanced Clients can start with arms extended behind ears while lowering and lifting legs.
