How to Do the Pilates Balance Point Position

Balance Point is both a position and a fundamental exercise in Pilates. Here, you see how to form the Balance Point position, which is a basic movement that is used in many different Pilates exercises.

This position teaches you that to balance with ease, you must engage your deep center.

Follow these steps to form the Balance Point position in Pilates:

  1. Sit up with your knees bent and hold on to the backs of your thighs.

  2. Roll back slightly behind your tailbone, pull your belly in (your Abdominal Scoop), and lift your feet off the mat.

    In order to maintain your balance and stop yourself from rolling backward, you must engage and pull in your deep abdominal muscles.
