The Pilates ring, or magic circle
as the ring is traditionally called, adds some new elements to the Pilates mat exercise, roll up.
When we use the magic circle with roll up, we get a little extra work for the arms and a greater opportunity to feel the engagement of the breath, the abs, and muscles of the back.
