I like the exact cueing given, good reminders, for although I have done Pilates before I don't always remember exactly how to hold myself. I found the exercises doable, and good for an off day, not too easy, not too hard!

"I am a little confused by the folks who say that there isn't enough instruction and that there are not enough cautions at the beginning of the program. If you watch the first section, you get a clear overview of ways to focus, and the instructor says very clearly that as a beginner, a person should only challenge themselves as far as they feel a stretch, but that this should not be painful, and that beginners should not expect to be able to fully achieve the poses yet. Furthermore, as you watch, she continually suggests modifications for beginners, and gives instructions that are so clear and explicit that yesterday I found myself altering the position of my big toe. It is THAT clear.
I love the short workouts that isolate areas to strengthen as supplements to the longer workouts. As a beginner, having those short chunks has really helped me, and with several weeks of this program, and doing the backbend segment every other day, I have noticed that my lower back doesn't hurt in the morning anymore. I can't wait for the evening each day so that I can go home and do my yoga! I tried taking yoga classes at my gym, and disliked how fast and advanced the programs were. This really is perfect for beginners!"
A Little Too Fast

"I went online to search for a supplemental video to use once a week at home, since I was only able to take one class at the wellness center and I wanted to keep my practice up. After reading great reviews about this video, and because the price was right, I bought this one.
I cant say that I "hate" the video, but I also cant say that I "love" it. I think I might just be spoiled because in my class, the instructor very thoroughly describes each posture, why we do each one, the benefits, lets us do each one a minimum of three times, etc. This video just seems to move a little fast for someone that is a true beginner. By the time I would finally get my body into the best posture that I could, she was on to the next one!
I reccommend this video if you have been practicing for at least a year. If not, I would choose another one."
