I don't know if the iTunes version is any better, or the one for the Kindle itself, but I can higly recommend the printed book whilst saying to avoid this particular download.
The section on mat work is not very long a lot of the book is devoted to working on the Pilates equipment ,Reformer etc which I do not use .
Despite this , this is a book I would not do with out
The first section of exercises are Mat Work which covers 70 pages with one or two pages dedicated to each exercise. These can be done by anybody with just a yoga or Pilates mat. The next section is the Universal Reformer exercises. 101 pages are devoted to this. These are done on machines called the Reformer or Aeroreformer. Some in this section use additional props along with the reformer. When I started reading this section I remember thinking, "Who would ever buy such a big and unwieldy contraction?" But then reading about some of the exercises that can be done on this piece of equipment and how many parts of the body that can be exercised really inspired me. I especially liked some of the stretching exercises which can target certain muscle groups that aren't always easy to stretch on your own. So a week later I ended up ordering a Reformer machine. It's going to involve squeezing it in to a 'just big enough' part of the exercise room and stepping over it to get to other parts of the room, so I hope it's worth it.Read more ›
