It is not difficult to see why this classic piece of equipment is called the Wunda Chair. It’s so named because it works wonders for your body. Being one of the traditional and “mysterious” pieces of Joseph Pilates inventions, it should be part of any well-equipped Pilates studio.
Resembling a backless chair, the Wunda Chair consists of a wooden base topped by a padded seat that doubles as the world’s smallest exercise Mat. Pilates exercises are performed sitting upright on the padded surface and standing atop, behind, or in front of the Chair with hands or feet in contact with the pedal. Detachable handles on the sides can be used for balance in the standing exercises. The Wunda Chair is a challenge because there is only a tiny part of the body connected to the Chair in all of the repertoire.
Although it is evolving and changing shape lately, it is becoming trendy in mainstream fitness studios. It remains a formidable resistance machine to train your core muscles for balance, stability, coordination, and flexibility. It’s designed to isolate and work on a particular muscle group at a time and to enhance the mind-body connection. It is imperative that whiles performing your exercise, your mind is focused on your movements.
A highlight of the Wunda Chair is that everybody can workout on this machine. It doesn’t matter if you are old or young, pregnant or suffering from high blood pressure, osteoporosis or sinusitis. The exercises you can perform with the Wunda Chair can be modified according to your needs, which makes the Wunda Chair so Wundaful!
