Pilates for 50+ with Amy Brown

"This is one of many pilates dvds I've watched. The 20 minute one for beginners (the only one I use) is quite good. Amy repeats important directions repeatedly and gives gentle reminder not to strain lower back or neck and to breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth. This beginner set has been a very good starting point for me and she's right, I can feel my core getting stronger. The 20 minutes go fast and you learn what your body can do and build from there. I would have liked a better view of the second person, the one I was following when Amy suggeted an easier version of the exercise, but you won't go wrong buying it."
Not Quite What I Thought

"Most if not all exercises were done on the floor. The only difference between the beginner and intermediate versions is the reps given to each of the exercises. I thought there should have been more exercises while standing.

"I'm 75 so I didn't want anything too strenuous. This is perfect for the senior."
Not so hot

"This pilates dvd is for people over 50. I think it should have said for people over 100. There is really no workout at all here. Sorry I bought it."
