Certified instructor description:
A blend of ballet, Pilates and traditional toning exercises performed in a spectacular Montana outdoor setting. Karen's instruction is quiet and clear; her moves are varied and effective. The program begins with standing moves that use a chair for support and body-positioning (e.g. standing leg lifts and heel raises). That's followed by a progressive series of diverse matwork exercises. These moves range from gym-style push-ups and abdominal curls to classic Pilates and flowing dancers' routines. Some exercises use a small ball to better engage your abs (e.g. the ball supports your lower back while your legs are lifted). Filmed in a scenic meadow with mountains and the Montana sky. Requires a small inflatable ball and a high back chair. Comes in a small cardboard sleeve. ©2010.
