Certified instructor description:
Faster-paced and more fluid than most Pilates programs, it features a huge variety of Pilates classics. Each 10-minute section targets a specific area: buns/thighs, arms/shoulders, abs, total-body plus a stretch (you can play any section in any order). Lara Hudson's one-on-one instruction is friendly and detailed. Despite the brisk pace and low reps, she keeps you focused on correct form with easy-to-understand cuing (e.g. “be sure to stay low”). Her transitions are also super-smooth; you're always just naturally positioned for the next move. Requires 1 to 3 lb. dumbbells. ©2006.
