A challenging Pilates mat routine
Beth Cholette | Upstate NY USA | 04/11/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This video is led by Ana Caban, and it is probably her most challenging workout. In consists entirely of matwork and begins immediately with the hundred exercise. Ana then moves through a traditional matwork sequence, including moves such as the roll-up, the roll-over, rolling like a ball, the series of five, and the teaser. For many of the moves, Ana adds a more challenging twist--eg, performing several of the series of five exercises with no arms, doing the open-legged rocker with closed legs as well, etc. Because this is an abs-focused workout, the Pilates side kick series and back extension moves are not included. Ana ends the workout with a unique combination move which is a compilation of rolling like a ball, open-legged rocker, the teaser, and lowering down a rope; she then ends with a few brief stretches to bring the workout in at just under 24 minutes. Although Ana works out with an assistant, Tara, who shows modifications for some of the movements, this is an intermediate to advanced Pilates workout and should not be attempted by those new to Pilates."
Great Workout At Home For Those With Experience

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is the perfect home workout if you've had a significant amount of Pilates training and have good form. I was skeptical about doing mat work to a DVD- I'm used to taking one-on-one classes with an Authentic Pilates instructor who helps me adjust my form, but now that I have almost a year of Pilates under my belt I thought I might be okay to work out on my own, at home, sometimes. Having taken so many private lessons, I'd have to say that newcomers to Pilates owe it to themselves to find a good studio and take some classes before they jump in and try to learn from a DVD. But if you're at an Intermediate level, this DVD is great.

Ana Caban works at a nice pace- she's not manic but definitely not too slow. She keeps filler conversation to a minimum and her reminders to engage your ab muscles are very helpful. Her assistant, Tara, simultaneously demonstrates easier versions of the exercises. The exercises are similar to most mat classes you'll find in a studio or gym, but she adds some interesting twists toward the end. I can tell that the more I perfect my form the deeper I'll get into working my core muscles, and that's what I really want from any mat routine.

Highly recommended."
Want flat abs? Get this DVD!

"It's not for beginners, but for the intermediate and advanced.

I love Ana. She goes nice and slow and explains instructions for each and every exercise to the letter.

There's not a lot of unnecessary chatter, nor are there a lot of useless tips. Just listen to her voice (you don't even have to look at your TV screen) and do what she tells you.

This is the best Pilates DVD on the market. You can't go wrong!

Thank you, Ana ;)"
