I really like this DVD, it is a must have. The visual demonstrations are very clear and precise, and the detailed verbal instructions are given by the instructor in a narrating, voice-over fashion. The moves are well explained with a lot of cues when to breath in and out. She is really inspiring to look at, so graceful. The scenery is great too, I like that it is filmed outside and not in a big beige carpeted room.

This DVD is broken up into 2 parts: "pilates concious cardio" (20min), and "pilates prep & mat work" (30min). I found the "cardio" section relatively easy: my heart rate elevated a little, but not as much as in a real cardio workout; I started sweating and could definitely feel my muscles working hard. The second part is really working the core hard. The only complaint I have is that as a beginner, I am not strong enough to raise myself from lying on the floor to sitting, using abs in a smooth roll-up movement, and this DVD has a lot of that. I wish there were alternatives to slowly strenghten the muscles to accomplish those roll-ups. I wish it was a bit slower too, so I could really concentrate on my breathing at the right moment, with longer breaks to keep the breathing on track. There is no breaks, you switch exercises constantly, some easy, some so hard that I needed to pause for a break. All the muscles are worked, and you can feel the burn the day after.
I will keep working, and soon enough I will be able to complete the whole DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Pilates DVD for anyone! Aug. 22 2011
Met Brooke in the summer at a yoga retreat and she inspired me to try pilates. I thought if I can look like her, I'm in!
Very easy to get the hang of. Brooke's voice is calming and encouraging. I recommend this DVD for any level! I look forward to incorporating this workout with my yoga practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners Dec 29 2013

I was always in to yoga, but really needed something to start strengthening my low back. I think its important to have some background in working out because you can hurt yourself if you dont know proper form. Absolutely love it though and even though Im not excessively sweating, i really see a difference after using it 3-4 times a week for the last 4 weeks

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good Aug. 25 2014
By Marilyn
I tried this DVD out for the first time last week and I liked it. The instructor is really clear and I personally did not find that she was speaking too fast or that I could not keep up with her. Exept for a few poses, I found this DVD rather easy compared to my other one. I guess I'm a pre-intermediate! In sum, good workout and good instructor :).

The workout was pretty good, it takes a couple times to get used of, because she talks so fast, but overall decent workout.

More of a real beginner series and a mix of Pilates and Yoga. This really wasn't advanced enough for me to really feel it in my abs.
