My First Pilates Workout
Lena, LMT | Nassau, NY | 03/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been doing yoga for over 2 years, along with latin dancing, the hula & bellydancing for almsot 2 years. I don't know much about pilates, but I enjoyed this dvd. I felt refreshed after, my abs were burning, and my spine felt more straight immediatly.

This disc comes with a 5 min interview with Rael, comes in 5.1 sound, the music is not annoying & the director & producers have won golden globes, emmys, etc. for other tv shows.
Rael Isacowitz has been doing Pilates for 25 years, is one of the few who can perform the entire repertoire & teaches other pilates teachers. He's one of the only people who can do the entire workout & has a masters in dance which shows in how he moves & speaks. He is very greaceful when he moves, has a lot of charisma when he speaks & doens't miss anything when showing how to do the movements. He sees the body as a dancer & is amazing in knowing how the body responds to small differences in movements such as which way the palm should face.
The set is simple in orange with 3 women demonstrating the movements on a pilates table while Rael tells you how to move, what to watch out for all while keeping perfect pace of always tellling you when to inhale & exhale in charming manner that's never annoying. He also demonstrates the more advanced way of doing each movement w/perfect precison & grace. The pace is relaxed to emphasis body awareness. The moves seem to be yoga-based with a hint of aerobics. The # on the DVD is how many moves it contains.

The "Rael" Thing

"I have been doing this DVD off and on for about a year now. Even if you do not complete the pilates demonstrated, you can breathe when instructed and still learn a lot. The accompanying music helps guide the flow of pilates.

As a growing investor in home DVD workouts and mind-body buff, it is a comprehensive 35 minute set of stretches. For me, it permits my body to gently inform my mind of what is aching. Consider my bias though, I am a mat pilates die-hard fan.

At this point, I have done this DVD work out with someone watching me from the couch, a 2 year old under my legs, and a cat dangling off the side of the pilates mat. It is a good "one size fits all" and thus one of my favorite ways to start the day. All you need is some loose clothing, a flat surface to do the exercises, and something to play the whole thing.

Personal training pilates

"I loved this DVD. The instructions are presented in a personal training manner, just what I was looking for. Rael stands next to the participants and leads them through a challenging yet very detailed workout. There are a lot of modifications presented throughout. I especially liked the cues and the visuals presented...he is a true professional and his passion for Pilates is obvious. This goes for all his system DVD's (7, 17, 27)."

"Rael is the best!!!!! His voice is so soothing, confident and commanding. This just takes 40 minutes, so if you want to get centered in the morning or a quick workout between getting home and dinner - this is for you! If you do this every day or at least five days a week you'll notice a difference"
