Product Description:

It starts with Pilates-inspired standing moves and ends with traditional Pilates matwork. Brooke Siler's cuing is exceptionally detailed; she emphasizes the tiny subtleties that make Pilates unique (breath, mindfulness, core focus). The result is a lean, firm, flexible body. The standing segment warms your muscles and gets the blood flowing. It integrates Pilates-style muscle control into familiar toning moves like lunges and squats. The matwork section is pure Pilates — classics like “the hundred,” “teaser” and “roll-up.” It's all filmed in a beautiful outdoor setting — an oceanside garden edged with flowers. ©2008.
