"Wow, I've had this workout for over a year, and had never tried it! I was so delighted when I did! Juliana was very informative and had a very soothing voice, and this was just the physical therapy I needed for today!
This DVD may not appeal to the masses, as it's not a fast moving workout (think Moira Stott, here!) But, it's filmed in a beautiful outdoor setting, on a beach looking out over the water. The music is calming and of very good quality, more classical in nature.
This DVD would be well suited for the beginning or intermediate pilates person who appreciates a thorough warm up to prepare the body for the exercises. It would also be excellent for an older exerciser, or deconditioned person who wants to move slower.
This won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I liked it well enough to want to seek out other workouts by this trainer. She's a very good instructor and I wouldn't hesitate to buy other workouts with her! If you have ADD or are a type "A" personality this may not be your thing, but I loved it and plan to use it more often!
Oh, and the mini-ball is used only in the second part of the workout, so it's not something you have to have to do every exercise. Traditional exercises are done, as well as a few new things thrown in like "helicopter."
Juliana is low key and soft spoken (with an accent) and beautful in form and grace!"
