It’s not often that the words “fun” and “exercise” appear in the same sentence. In fact, it’s quite possible that Pilates has never been described as fun before (especially by those taking my class). But this move always gets a laugh in class, partly because we feel silly doing it (especially when we roll back and find we aren’t able to get back up again) and partly because it brings out the kid in us. Rolling like a ball is a move kids will likely do more easily than adults, but it’s fun and effective for both.
