Free Downloadable Pilates Leg Floats Infographic


I recently received this question from a member of PilatesLessonPlans.co.uk….


I have a lady in my group who has severe osteoarthritis and finds it difficult to get into 4 point position. I’d thought of using blocks to help but can you think of an alternative?


My answer was…


“Maybe you could give Leg Floats as an alternative. I created an Infographic for you which you can download, print and give to her.” 


Below is the Pilates Leg Floats Infographic that I created for that member. Please feel free to use it as a teaching aid or handout for your students. And if you become a member and would like one of these Infographics created for a Pilates Exercise (so you can give it to one of your students), send me an email. I usually get requests completed within 24 hours. This is a free service for members.
