I have recently began taking a Reformer Pilates and a mat Pilates class at the Y. I wanted something to supplement at home since my kids don't like to go into childcare every day. Having two young kids under the age of 4, this seems to be a good starter video. There are 3 gals on the mat (one doing an easier modified version) and a woman instructing who is walking around them providing direction. She is pretty bland but she gives good direction regarding what we should be doing during each exercise to get the best results. The workout is 31 minutes long. There is also the option of a 47 minutes workout that includes the matwork (31minute) and 16 minutes of exercise with the pilates ring. There isn't any music in the background so the workout is very different than say, a yoga video, where you become almost spiritually moved by the experience. I still enjoy it, but this is my first pilates video so I don't know what else is available. The direction and exercises are very much in line with what I am learning with my instructors at the gym.
