Movie Reviews

Horseback Riders A Must Have
Back In The Warmus | South Carolina | 03/20/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a riding instructor who does lots of outside exercise (Pilates and other instruction). This DVD is SUPERB. For people looking for the faster Pilates movement - they may be disappointed, but slow down and be precise and deliberate and feel what Teresa can do for you. I have purchased this dvd for ALL my riding students and have seen improvements in their riding in less than a month. The exercises are deliberate enough any one can follow them, the instructor is encouraging without being too perky - and she's a "real" person (rather than someone who weighs 87 lbs. and bends like a pretzel). Her upper body exercises are just what my riders (and women) need to help strenghten their shoulders and stretch their pecs."
The Title Tells it All
Senior Gardener | Illinois | 05/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This dvd is just what you want if you are beginning a pilates program or are one of us older exercisers who like to vary the routines we do to include a variety in our workouts. The picture on the cover is misleading. Theresa Borgren is not a skinny blond, but an older woman who takes you through a variety of routines which the beginner will be able to do, to the more challenging--always a good workout."
Beautiful, excellent

"Yes - as another reviewer pointed out, the cover photo is misleading. Theresa Borgen is a real woman who is sharing the culmination of her life work in teaching Pilates for the benefit of people of all ages.

This is the most beautifully filmed workout video I have seen. It received the Aurora Award and Award of Distinction for Videography, and is a true pleasure to watch and follow. With no visual clutter, you can fully focus on the actual graceful movements, and a great soothing coaching voice (Borgen's) to help you tune into your muscles and your position make this pretty close to having your own pilates instructor leading you through the progression of the postures and deeper refinement of the movements.

If you're looking for a fast-paced aerobics or kick-boxing routine, this is definitely not the one for you. But if you want to locate, stretch, move and develop your core and all upper and lower body parts with some class and elegance, no matter what shape you start out in, I would surely recommend this one.

Like another reviewer, I am also a horse rider, where balance and subtlety in the use of our bodies is very important. I love this video, and its companion "Pilates Yoga" for the gentle, yet challenging and invigorating workouts they provide."
