You can start with an easier variation and work your way up to the full move for most pilates exercises. For the teaser you might want to start by breaking it down into leg lifts, and then practice lifting just your torso while propping up your feet on an exercise ball. Once you get stronger you can work towards lifting your torso and legs at the same time, but as long as you’re mindful of good form you can lift just a little, you don’t have to come all the way up till you’re ready and you can balance well in the position. Hope that helps a little. Keep at it, you can do it.
