How to Do the Pilates Levitation Position

When you combine a Hip-Up position in Pilates with a little low butt squeeze, you get the Levitation position. The Levitation position is a basic movement that is used in many different exercises.

  1. Lie on your back and lift up your hips with your Abdominal Scoop.

  2. At the top of the Hip-Up, squeeze your butt.

    You’ll feel your hips levitate, rising perceptively higher as if the hand of a goddess came down and lifted you from the heavens.

Levitation is a key concept in Pilates, but don’t feel intimidated by this position. You won’t have to do anything like this until you get into the more advanced Pilates exercises.
