Reformer | Side Tree

Side Tree on the Pilates Reformer is an exercise combining core strength with a deep hip stretch. Starting on the Short Box, the practitioner completes their Tree to the front. Maintaining square alignment to the best of their ability, the practitioner brings their leg out to the side and repeats the Tree exercise in an outstretched position. This exercise builds stretch with strength through whole body commitment.
