Best Beginner Pilates Video on the Market

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Got this pilates/yoga video set at Costco last year. The beginning yoga and pilates workouts are exactly that - for beginners of all levels. Modifications are offered on three levels. The narrator has a calming voice making you believe that you are doing everything correct and gently keeps you on track with reminders sprinkled through out. There is a great section of the videos that goes over fundamentals which is perfect for the novice or for the more experienced who need to be reminded of the fundamentals.
I have tried many other beginning videos and find that the instructors are completely out of the reality of a beginner. They seem to be doing what is a simple excercise for them but it far surpasses what a true beginner is able to safely do. The Maya videos instructors/performers are obvious in shape and advanced but they truly do a basic work out to show the importance of fundamentals. No one is just showing off on these videos. It's all about doing it correctly and safely.
A friend of mine who is in her late 50's recently went through chemotherapy and and needed a low intensity work out she could handle while on chemo. I gave her the beginning yoga video and she swears by it. She searched around on line and bought one of her own.
I only wish Maya would produce more videos, I would love to have more choices. This video set is a true gem and well worth the money."
