"Remember what Joseph Pilates said," instructor Ana Caban says. "'You will feel better in 10 sessions, look better in 20 sessions, and have a completely new body in 30 sessions.'" Pilates has become very popular and for good reason. By working the core muscles (the abdominal and back muscles in the center of your body) you improve strength and posture and develop a lean, long line.
Certified Pilates instructor Ana Caban is a splendid teacher. First she demonstrates alignment and technique for 10 minutes, explaining the cue words you will hear and how to do the basics, emphasizing how to use the core muscles to strengthen the abdominals and back throughout the workout. Then she introduces a challenging 20-minute series of Pilates moves, instructing clearly, demonstrating beautifully, and continuing to advise you about technique, breathing, and form.
Even though this is a beginning Pilates workout, Pilates is never easy, so these moves will feel extremely difficult if you're new to this kind of exercise. For example, you learn to hold your abs tight whatever move you're doing, and you move only the muscles you're working at the moment, using your stabilizing muscles to hold the rest of the body still (much harder than it sounds!). Another participant demonstrates modifications throughout in case Caban's moves are too difficult or your muscles fatigue. If you've been wanting to explore Pilates and you're willing to put in the effort and concentration, this video gets our top rating. --Joan Price

Customer Review of Pilates - Beginning Mat Workout
Good workout, horrible production quality
The video has a good workout with alternatives for beginners and slightly more advanced users for each exercise, but the intentional unsteady cam and cuts to strange angles with awful lighting/color effects makes it a less than stellar total package.
Please don't buy this DVD
I have never been so disappointed with a product. I wish they has something like negetive stars for rating. Believe me all the 5 star reviews here are misleading especially if you are a beginner. There are many problems with this Pilates DVD and most importantly the instructor is too busy trying to impress you with her good looks that she forgets to orient you to the most important fundamentals before you start the exercise. I did two sessions and I had terrible muscle pulls in my abdomen (I am in my mid-20s and exercise regularly).At that time however, I thought something was wrong with me and I did not know how to do Pilates. I gave up trying to do it.
>Then after a year,I tried the Pilates for dummies and used Alan Herdman's Pilates directory...and it made a huge difference. I did not have any muscle pulls. Only then I understood what a good breathing technique and learning to engage your abdominal muscles properly means. It was only then that I realized how terrible this DVD was. I watched it last night just to see what I thought about it after a year...and I was aghast. I realized that the instructor herself did not understand the fundamentals/or did not bother to communicate it properly. People like me were actually buying this product to learn from it. I have never written a review before in my life but I thought this time I should warn people about this product before they buy it. Apart from this the production of the DVD is terrible. Please don't buy this DVD.There are much better Pilates beginner's stuff out there, this is not even comparable to any of those.
Good for beginners
I like how energetic she is and how she had the other person show the easier variation for each exercise. I especially like the bonus 12 minute energy workout - great of you don't have much time but just want to get moving.
