Movie Reviews

Janis Saffell, Good To The Core!
Yoga Dad | 12/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had found out about Janis Saffell because I picked up her Beverly Hills Yoga DVD (see my review of that on my amazon page). I've had a daily Yoga practice for the past 9 years and the main part of my home practice is driven by DVD/VHS programs so I'm always looking for more variety.

Since I was extremely pleased with her Yoga DVD and I figured I'd give this Pilates disc a try.

Once again Janis came through!

This is a very well done routine, all the poses start from a simple foundation and then build to harder variations. She does a beautiful job demonstrating the movements and is very pleasent to listen to (I have a difficult time with instructors who are too much like "Rah Rah" Aerobics teachers).

While this is not "Classic Pilates", Janis's unique approach to the system is really interesting! In fact I think this creative approach is a really wonderful addition and complement to the more traditional Pilates programs out there. I also found that this DVD worked my body in a way that is a different but definitely complimentary practice to Yoga. I was certainly challenged!

In fact, I took the suggestion of someone who has been doing both Yoga and Pilates and followed the Pilates practice with some Yoga and that was perfection!

Though that is a personal preference I'm sure that many folks would enjoy this DVD as a practice in and of itself.

The routine, minus the introduction, take about 40 minutes from start to finish so it's long enough without being overwhelming.

Highly recommended!

Awesome Video

"I have been teaching Pilates for over a year now and I always welcome the opportunity for new creative ways to implement the practice. Janis does a wonderful job. Her moves are graceful, her cueing is impectable and I love the background music. I practice Pilates three to four times a week and after doing this entire video I woke up the following day and felt a difference. My students were happy when I added some of Janis routines to my class. This video is great for all level since Janis begins each movement at a beginner level and works it up to advance. I love the way she progresses her movements. This video is on top of my list of Pilate videos."
A very nice complete Pilates practice

"If you read any of my other reviews, you will quickly find I'm a big Janis Saffell fan. I was somewhat skeptical that she could transition to doing as good a pilates wokout as her other strength/kickboxing videos. I was pleasantly surprised by this video, she cues well just like her other videos and presents pilates in a very nice manner, increasing the difficulty of each move with modifications. Most of the exercises are traditional with a few "hybrids" thrown in. Her manner is nice and relaxed with complimentary music. This is just a really good, nicely produced workout which I highly recommend adding to your rotation whether beginner or intermediate! No disappointments here!"
