After injury to my back & a difficult pregnancy (severe separation of pubic bones), my physiotherapist suggested I hold off on returning to my years-long yoga habit and try Pilates. I was deeply skeptical of making the shift, as many long-time devotees of one kind of exercise/meditation can be. But injury prevailed and I followed my physio's advice.

I did my physio's pilates-based routine, but also bought about 5 DVDs and videos of various pilates teachers and styles to see which one worked for me best. Some were quite good though a bit limited, others caused serious pain because they were trying to be entertaining or flashy or the instructor was showing off. I didn't believe for a minute that anyone in those tapes had ever had back or other serious pain, or had ever exercised after surgery or while overweight -- and I just didn't believe they really knew what it was like trying these routines for the first time. Their explanations seemed to be for the already initiated and relatively healthy body. They all looked like former dancers or gymnasts on their second career. Their routines showed little sympathy for the normal human body working through pain.

This DVD is completely different! This instructor is different -- she suffered from long-time back pain and headaches and knows where many of us will be coming from.

I feel like I can now truly understand what all the Pilates hype has been about. The instrustor's direction is superb, the exercises properly sequenced to avoid stresses and strain. I feel like this is not just an exercise DVD, but an instructional one.

If you want to learn the safest and most productive way to do pilates -- you cannot do better than this.

I'm not throwing out my other DVDs and videos, but now when I go back to them, I will really know how to position my body for optimal effect.

If you only get one, this one should be it.

This DVD is a fantastic intro to Pilates for anyone who wants to try it and is also a great longer weekly work out if you have had some experience. I combine this workout once a week with the two shorter workouts from the 'Shape Up' DVD. The session is broken down into the Warm Up (27 Mins), Main Workout (43 Mins) and a Wind Down (5 Mins). Any of these workouts can be done on their own if you don't have enough time for it all in one go.

The exercises that are covered are very comprehensive covering all areas of the body from head to toe from a standing, seated or lying down position. Lynne Robinson, is a great teacher explaining each individual action fully.

Unlike Yoga which can be a bit intimidating, Pilates is a simple, easy, relaxing way to incorporate much needed stretching into your exercise routine and this DVD is valuable for any fitness level.

This DVD is an excellent introduction to Pilates. The teacher explains the poses very well. The pace of the DVD is especially great for beginners - once you are a bit more advanced you can do more repetitions of the same exercise in the time it takes for the beginners to hear the explanation. In fact I learnt a lot more about Pilates from this DVD than from classes. Very recommendable!

If you are thinking of starting out on the pilates trail to fitness I cannot recommend this particular DVD enough. I am close to 70 with arthritis and this one was perfect for me. I am now much more mobile, in far less pain and have just finished decorating my kitchen on my own. It will take time for results to be felt and the breathing with pilates is tricky, but with perseverance and half and hour or more a day practice perhaps, like me, you will get your life back.

A very good introduction to pilates for newbies, followed by a complete workout that can be divided in two sessions. Explains very well all the basics, reminds you of correct posture and alignment throughout each exercise. A great dvd to initiate you to pilates!

If I'd been able to view this item before purchasing I would not have bought it. There is a good explanation of the theory behind the exercises but Lynne Robinson is too long-winded, and it is very difficult to navigate through the DVD in order to skip the talk and move to individual exercies. It is also very basic and although there is nothing on the sleeve to indicate that it is just for beginners I probably will not use it much.

She spends a lot of time explaining the basics which is good if you are new and she says which execrcise is good for which part of your body, injure etc. But after a few times using this dvd you will feel the need of others because once you master the basics it gets boring. I would advice it if you never done pilates before to master the basics and then go for something a bit more challanging.

Excellent. Very easy to follow. I only ever do the warm up and it has helped my stiff back enormously. Highly recommended.
