"The most advanced variation of the 'The Wall', the Pedi Pole requires balance and control to maintain the body's posture throughout the exercise. The pole is a representation of the spine, a practitioner with a well balanced body will be able to maintain constant contact between the body and the pole. The springs extending down strengthens the muscles of the shoulder girdle to guide the shoulders down and lift the chest up. This ingenious apparatus requires a practitioner to use the whole body equally to maintain proper posture and alignment throughout movement." - Victoria Torrie-Capan
