What is the Saw in pilates?

Pilates for Pregnancy: the Saw

Sit on the floor with legs extended and set slightly further apart than your hips; have your feet flexed. Stretch your arms out to the sides, parallel to the floor. Originating the movement from your core, twist your torso to the left while bringing the fingers of your right hand toward the toes of your left foot. Exhale and stretch gently through your chest. Inhale, pull your abs in, sit up, and repeat the move on the other side. Repeat eight to ten times on each side. Do your best not to do all the work with your arms.
