"I had the Pilates Perfect Mix DVD and decided to add these videos to my workout because I liked the other so much and was getting great results. Each of these videos offers a different type of pilates training and used together, I am now able to make a different workout each day depending on what I want to concentrate on. I love all 3 videos and am very happy with the results of toning, cardiovascular and stretch."
Not for beginners

"This DVD is not for everyone. I have tried pilates and yoga but am not a dancer. Although it is interesting to see how Kries puts all three together it is very difficult to follow. She does not give instruction on the form nor does she give you much notice when changing from one move to another. If I had never practiced pilates or yoga I would be lost. If a beginner tried this they would not know how to do the moves properly. If you have experience in all three areas you may like this DVD but don't try it unless you're already familiar with yoga and pilates."

"This should not be labelled as a pilates workout. There is really only a small section with a condensed mat workout. The rest is very flowy, dancy low-impact exercise. Some of which could be hard on the knees if done improperly. Lots of deep plie type stuff. It might work for you if this is the exercise you want, but if you are looking for PILATES, don't buy this. I wish I hadn't. Even the beginning Gaiam series with "perky" Ana Caban is better."
U will start getting a lean, toned result.

"You will definitely see your posture and notice your body toning and start getting leaner.
I recommend you buy Pilates Workout for Dummies first, if this is the first time you do Pilates.
She incorporates Yoga and Ballet. She also, informs you on the importance of breathing and contraction of your stomach. I really enjoy this workout. You will sweat, and notice a difference.
The only reason I did not give it 5 Stars, was that she moves from one exercise to another without explaining them. This frustrated me at first, because I had to constantly stare at
the TV to make sure I was doing it right.
But thanks to Pilates for dummies I now do this workout smoothly."
