Pilates Jack knife Exercise - Modifications for Beginners to Intermediate

The Jack Knife exercise is part of the Advanced Pilates Mat Series. It requires a lot of core strength and lower back flexibility to do it safely. It needs to be done slowly and with control. I created these modifications to the Jack Knife, I teach these in my classes because I'm working with older people and people with injuries. These modifications turn the Jack Knife into a beginners/intermediate exercise and make it much more accessible for mixed ability group classes.


I am currently offering online Pilates classes and online Pilates Personal Training via Zoom. I can help with injury rehabilitation, pain relief, postural alignment and general fitness. Please get in touch for details.
