Great For Beginners

"Whether you're completely out of shape or simply new to Pilates, Pilates For Moms is a great video for beginners. My only drawback is that I'd like to see the instructions shown in a separate segment instead of during the actual exercises.
That being said, Lindsey does a great job of making this video relaxing and powerful. She makes sure you understand the dos and don'ts of Pilates, how to modify moves, and how to listen to your body.
Yes, it's designed for mothers who've recently had babies, but Session 2 is geared more towards those who've had babies quite awhile ago.
I'm finding the video very helpful for my computer pains: lower back, neck and poor stomach muscles."
She talks too much

"I bought several videos at once and this was my least favorite. I had a pretty easy labor and I was eager to get back to my old self. I wanted a video that would maximize what little time I had during the day to work-out. I never use this video any more. I now use Postnatal Rescue on the really tired days and Postnatal Boot Camp for the maximum work-out.
My biggest complaint is that the instructor seems to stop the work-out to tell you the benefits. Good info but not if I want to use the video again and again. It moved way too slow for me and I kept wishing she would move on. I got so bored I haven't even seen some of the sessions and just threw the DVD on a shelf
I guess its a good video if you had a c-section and need to take things 'very easy', but it just wasn't for me"
