DVD - Basic Pilates, 2nd Ed. (EN/FR) 5

Great DVD to get a basic understanding of Pilates

By , ON, CA on August 04, 2020

After completing Volume 1, I felt great and wanted to move the principles of Stott Pilates exercises introduced in Volume 2 will leave you invigorated and energized. Performed regularly, you'll notice increased tone, strength and flexibility, as well as a true sense of well-being.

One major fault

By , BC, CA on April 14, 2020

This video contains a very good and complete workout. However for two 77 years olds (who have done a lot of pilates in the past but not recent years) it moves far too quickly to the extent that we are not using the video - disappointing. Do you have a suggestion for something else that would proceed at a slower pace? Lorna

Thank you

By , Philippines on October 19, 2015

I only write this to tell you how good I think your DVD programs are. I am an 77 year old physiotherapist and I have used your programs for may be 3 to 4 years. Up till just now I have been living in the Philippines and purchased the equipment in Manila and I purchased your DVDs online. I enjoy the exercises and the DVDS are so easy to follow. I have a routine of 2 DVDs in the morning and it is great fun. I only want you to know how much I appriciate your Pilates! Thank you.
