March MATness Day 27: Boomerang

I can’t help but geek out over Boomerang.  If anything is more my passion than Pilates, it’s MOVEMENT in general.  Boomerang is such a great movement integration exercise.  It’s one of the few in Pilates’ original mat work that explicitly calls for a sequence of previous exercises in a choreographed movement.  Spine Stretch, Rollover, Teaser. All mashed together, yet beautifully highlighted.

That’s where today’s cue comes in.  Break it down to the building blocks.  Any time you create a movement sequence for a client to work through – and I LOVE to do this for clients – it is really helpful to start with the pieces and string them together for a final few reps of pure flowing movement.  You can refer to earlier exercises in the class if you’ve done a piece of the sequence already, or you can do the exercises in order just before stacking them together to create a fluid a movement.
