A slow controlled method of exercising. This is good for people who need something very low impact and like to exercise with low key music and instruction. The exercises are very much similar to Pilates exercise but with the use of a balance ball.
Fabulous and Fun!!!

"This is a fun workout! The best part is you can choose several different short 10-15 min. routines and put them in any order through the menu interface! Wow, what a lovely way to do it. You choose the sequence. It's not choppy like some of the other DVD's I've tried with this function.
I love ball workouts. I'm not a big lover of pilates, but this one is great! Most of it is fairly easy, but you make it what you will like any exersize routines. Some of her bridge poses are a bit difficult, so it does have some challenges.
Well worth the money if you're looking for a good balance ball routine. Check my other reviews on ball DVD's, yoga, mediation, etc."
It's Yoga-Infused Pilates (It's supposed to be relaxing)

"If you've ever taken yoga or pilates, or have any idea at all what these things might entail, you know that one could comfortably refer to these as the subtle excercise arts. It simply is not cardio. It isn't step. This is a toning workout, as pilates and yoga often are.
The narration on the video is very soothing, and thus may be listened to over and over again--very convenient as this is an excercise video. The narration contains no repetitive catch phrases, no yee-haws and aerobic woopings. Simple, calming, relaxing instruction, period.
True to its pilates roots, this tape encourages the use and development of the core muscles to stabalize the body while working all the major muscle groups. Many of the moves are challenging for a first-timer, but this just means that the tape will continue to be beneficial over a long period of time.
If you're looking for something Paula Abdul-ish, an early 90's step aerobics with lots of cardio, shouting, loud techno beats, garish outfits and fake tans, please don't buy this very relaxing yet physically challenging video."
Boring and lifeless

"I love Gaiam products. I especailly love working out on my balance ball. What I don't like is this video. I can't watch more than 5 minutes of it, it's far too boring and doesn't even catch my interests, let alone keep them. I don't feel worked out after I do suffer through the entire thing. Do yourself a favor, use the money you were going to spend on this video and buy the Balance Ball for Beginners. It's slighty more interesting and you will feel like you've worked out the next day."
