Editorial Reviews

PREVIEW: Carefully chosen Beginner to Intermediate Yoga movements to strengthen muscles involved in body balance. Precise cues offered with a serene attitude. Follow the 33-min video or various modules when short on time.

ACHIEVE: Balance, in as little as one month; flexibility, in your back and legs; body awareness and muscle control. Plus, your mind will feel clear, relaxed and more able to focus with each practice.

INSIDER’S INFO: Your musculature must work together and be strong enough to support your body in the proper way. Strong core muscles keep your body in proper alignment and balance, thus allowing other muscle groups to function as they were intended so you can work and play with minimum effort. Standing on one leg to put your shoes or pants on will never again be a problem.

SURPRISING FACTS: The second most common cause of accidental death in the world is falling. Studies show that the risk of falling increases exponentially with age as joint health and muscle strength diminish and balance control decreases.

View samples on Youtube; search for “Michaela Sirbu”. Thank you for considering “About Balance” or Michaela’s other wonderful videos!

Our "Posture Balance and Whole Body Toning" is a 4-DVD Set containing a mixture of flowing Pilates and Yoga movements for stretch, relaxation, core strength, balance, toned legs and arms.

How Are Michaela’s DVDs and Instruction Different?

IDEAL FOR HOME USE ... lots of visual anchors and reminders are provided so you can safely learn alone, though you will feel like the instructor is present in your living room

LIGHT HEARTED & HUMOROUS ... your “Love-inatrix” type, not “Dom-inatrix”; did you know that laughing builds core strength and elevates your spirits?

PROGRESSIVE & COMPASSIONATE ... she remembers feeling crippling back pain at age 35 and the need to learn step-by-step; pause the video and do what you can, when or if you feel it’s too much for you

EDUCATIONAL & SAFE ... the “why/how” details help you learn proper form faster and build muscle memory; then your muscles will engage automatically during your activities

TIMELESS ... core strength is essential for any sport or activity, at any age, and regardless of how strong your core muscles are, if you learn to use them properly, you get even stronger.

Format: DVD
I have retired early, so I'm on the golf course a few days a week. Like most passionate golfers, my goal over the years has been to improve my swing and the enjoyment of the game. I've been hearing that many competitive golfers, men and women, practice Pilates to learn how to use their core muscles more efficiently, but I never tried it myself until I started working with your DVDs. What a great Christmas gift my wife bought up for me! (your "Principles and Basics of Pilates", "Beginner Pilates in Detail" and "About Balance" DVDs). I can't believe how much of a difference these exercises are making! After only a month of practice my abdominal muscles feel stronger, I can twist better, I am aware of tensing my neck and shoulders, I breathe more often and have more energy - my whole body feels great!

What I most like about your DVDs is that you explain things so very simply. More than that, you give the reason for each move. Maybe not everybody needs to know why, or what, is being worked in a given exercise, but I do. Your demeanour is pleasant and assuring; you smile and giggle from time to time, which makes the viewer feel you're human and likeable; you give us an "out" (i.e. do what we can, don't strain, build toward maximum achievement, etc.); your accent is exotic, which somehow gives the viewer confidence in your ability; and you "speak" to your audience through eye contact.

Repetition is so important when learning the basics of any endeavour. I am glad to see that you employ this method, as the volume of information can be overwhelming to the beginner. In fact, you stated that at the outset.

I really like how you demonstrate the manoeuvre at the start of each segment, then break it down and explain each element. That is perfect.

"Thank you for a wonderful set of DVDs! As a man, I've always been somewhat intimidated about signing up for a Pilates or Yoga class at the gym, seeing that it's mostly women who participate. I thought one must have a degree of flexibility and core strength to engage in these classes. One day I stumbled upon some pieces of your videos on Youtube. I followed your instructions and was impressed by how clear and concise your cues are, and how much the few exercises you selected helped me! The Foam Roller thigh stretches feel like "ouch" but they sure work. So do the stretches you teach in your Better Posture DVD. These are slowly changing the way I sit and move, as I remember to practice them many times a day. I've become addicted to working with About Balance, as it's helping me focus, channel my strengths and overcome my weaknesses - not only in physical activities I enjoy but in my business, too."

Michaela is such a competent instructor, with an easy going teaching style. It feels as though she knows your needs so you can trust you won't get hurt. She explains how to safely progress from one exercise to a more complex one and how to properly position so you get the most out of your exercise. I highly recommend this instructor and her videos! I bought - and love - her "Foam Roller" and "Better Posture" - also.
