Certified instructor description:
Exceptionally well-instructed, it's a deep-muscle mix of traditional and intensified Pilates exercises. You'll start with a classic Pilates routine. Then you'll amplify its effectiveness by adding quick pulses, isometric holds, tempo changes and larger movements (e.g. a plank with a side-to-side foot tap). Jules' instruction is friendly and always encouraging. Her use of both hand and verbal cuing makes the workout exceptionally do-able (she also includes lots of fully-demonstrated level and intensity modifications). ©2008.
