Certified instructor description:
Each 10-minute segment targets a specific body area: core, lower body, upper body and total body (plus a stretch/relaxation section). It's a great intro to Pilates. Lara Hudson is calm and gentle; her cuing is easy to follow and very detailed. The format is super-straight-forward — classic Pilates exercises arranged in muscle-group progressions (e.g. “the hundred” for your abs, “bridges” for your glutes). Like all “10 Minute Solution” videos, you can customize your workout by programming the DVD to play any segment in any order. ©2010.
