If you're not familiar with the exercises, they're slow like yoga, but very effective and with no inverted poses. The moves are isolated and you consentrate on a few areas at a time, but what you feel later (and believe me, you'll feel it) is that you've worked your entire body. The cool thing is that it gets you a workout to your very core. It feels like you're toning your muscles at a very deep level (I'm not a personal trainer, so don't know proper terms) but you can tell it's really working the muscles.
Some of the positions will feel awkward at first and takes a little time to adjust. Definately go with the woman demonstrating at your level (There are three to choose from). They give lots of instruction and reminders on how to position yourself, which is helpful.
This DVD is relaxing, while strengthening, and you will need some time to complete it all the way through. It is divided into sections if you want to concentrate on one section at a time.
While not as high tech and fancy as some of the exercise DVDs out, this one gets results that I'm happy with. I highly recommend this DVD.
Is it a terrible workout? Not really. If you're looking for a hybrid of yoga, callanetics and pilates, it's not so bad.
If you love straight up Callanetics, stick with the older, Callan-led workouts. Callanetics at it's core is very simple, and the older workouts tend to flow quite nicely, which really means that once you learn the moves, you should be able to work on your own without an instructor, book or dvd. It's all about working at your own level, at your own pace, nothing scary. If you're looking for Callanetics, I'd say to look at the original '10 years younger in 10 days' (an hour long), or the AM/PM (2 20 minute workouts, definitely doable as morning/evening workouts, it's most of the 10/10 workout spread into two workouts).
In this 'Evolution' workout, three exercisers work simultaneously, each doing a slightly different level.
There's not much in the way of guidance, so in order to know what to do, you have to really look at the screen and try to puzzle out what's going on. This is much easier for some moves than others. The transitions from one move to another don't always make sense either, and you won't know what's coming up based on the instructor. More than once I've had to stop the dvd, figure out what position to get in, get myself there, and then restart the dvd. This kind of thing really ought not to be necessary.
There's a section that purports to give tips on proper form, but it's a discussion of theory and principles, not a step by step, here's how you do moves x, y or z.Read more ›
Instructor Sandra Hanna's unobtrusive but confidently delivered tutorial maintains the gentle tone of the exercises (and her British accent provides an extra nudge of authority). Like the original VHS version, the movements remain gentle without being easy and the after-effects leave you feeling refreshed, never depleted or sore. But don't let the mini-movements fool you... the pulsing actions, when performed correctly, add up!
Added bennie: The DVD's relaxing background music puts my dog to sleep! This is great if, like mine, your dog sees floor exercises as an invitation to wrestle. (Try doing restorative yoga poses while an 80-pound maniac Labrador jumps on your abdomen. Enough said.)
I would highly recommend this DVD to anyone looking for gentle but effective exercises.

I would recommend this to any women. They never get easy and they do what they say they will. I had done Callenetics in the past and dropped them out. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Mary Fitzgerald
