Like the Double Leg Stretch and Single Leg Stretch, this exercise is an excellent example of all the Pilates principles working together; rotation is all we add. Remember to keep a solid and stable pelvis. If you have trouble with your pelvic stability, try a smaller range of motion and stretch your legs more towards the ceiling. The rotation comes from the shoulders. Think about reaching the opposite shoulder towards the bent knee and not the elbow. The elbows should stay wide, and they will naturally follow the shoulders.
