4.0 out of 5 stars Very good therapeutic yoga/pilates mix January 1, 2009
Verified Purchase
This DVD may be better entitled therapeutic pilates for back & abs. It is a very relaxing, slow moving routine that will help people with chronic back and body pain and/or older people. I use it on days when I am not feeling well to get some movement and stretching throughout my body. Eva Bondar has developed this all-floor routine (no standing required) with a lovely ocean front setting. The filming is somewhat low resolution and a bit of haze in the air on this day on the west coast of Maui (quite common). There is no music, but you can hear the ocean waves as Eva narrates with voice over. The routine is primarily yoga postures with a good hold times, repeats, and breathing. There's lots of forward bends, back bends, and side bends. There are only a few pilates moves and it may be boring if you're looking for a challenging pilates workout.

Some of my favorite stretches are included with interesting variation. Eva adds point/flexing, rotations, relaxation, and breathing throughout the routine. It consists of three sections warm-up stretching, abs, and back. You can do the individual short segments, or all together and the DVD is well menu so you can pick and choose. Each of the three segments varies in length from 10-20 minutes (warm-up is the longest section).

4.0 out of 5 stars A gentle, relaxing, Pilates-based stretch workout September 15, 2007
Maui Pilates: Abs Made Easy is led by instructor Eva Bander and filmed on a Hawaiian beach. Although it isn't quite as focused on abs as the title suggests, it is certainly "easy" in that it's a very gentle program, more of a mat-based stretching routine with some Pilates moves thrown in. The DVD is chaptered to include a short Introduction by Eva, and the workout itself includes three segments, Warm-Up, Abs, and Back.

Surprisingly, the Warm-Up was the longest section at 20.5 minutes. Eva begins in a seated cross-legged position for breathing, overhead reaches, shoulder rolls, and spine/neck stretches; she also brings the legs forward for a seated forward bend. She then moves into a side saddle position for a slow twist to both sides, and she continues stretching with the legs in cobbler's and straddle positions. The Pilates mermaid follows, and finally, Eva comes back to a cross-legged position for some final shoulder/neck stretches to complete the warm-up. For the 18-minute Abs segment, Eva continues to move at a very slow, leisurely place. She performs a half roll-up, bringing one knee in at a time, and then slowly moves into the single leg stretch. Other Pilates moves follow, including bridge and scissors (single straight let stretch). Eva performs a lying twist with both knees bent, turning this into oblique work by rolling one arm to meet the other. She continues to work the abs with a simple curl, a held curl, and a modified roll-back. A hamstring stretch/ankle roll transitions into leg lowers, and Eva ends the abs work with a seated twist.

The final segment of the workout focuses on the back (10.5) minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maui Pilates: Abs Made Easy August 29, 2007
This has to be one of the best Pilate stretch and Ab videos on the market, as far as I am concerned.
It has everything you could ask for in a stretch video.
Eva is a wonderful instructor who takes you through each move slowly, and precisely. Every move is very easy to follow and flows from one to the other with no jerky confusing moves.
The settiing couldn't be more beautiful. Filmed on a beautiful beach in Maui Hawaii. The only sound you hear is Eva's voice and the tranquil sound of the waves as they roll into shore.
It's a program designed for any age or fitness level. I myself am 65 and have found that over the years my range of movement seems to be getting smaller and smaller. And with 5 and 6 year old granchildren who expect me to be their playmate when they come over. I can't allow myself to become as stiff as a fence post.
Eva's program is perfect. I love it!!!!!! It's something I look forward too each day.
It's a wonderful way to start your day if your a morning person. A great way to relax in the afternoon, while the kids are napping. Or a relaxing break in the evening after a hard day at work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing Workout May 12, 2008
Eva Bondar presents a fairly low impact workout that moves at a very slow pace. Even though you are not working at a fast pace you can feel the exercises working. This workout begins in a seated position and then moves into back, neck and leg stretches. Each stretching exercise properly prepares the body for more intense exercises. The exercises presented include: mermaid, single-leg pull, bridge, scissors and curls (sit-ups). The back exercises include: cat/cow and cobra. There is a relaxing child's pose and then a downward dog and hanging forward bend. As you can see from the short list of exercises this moves at a slow pace and emphasis is placed on doing the exercises with a sense of precision. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who is advanced but maybe it will work for intermediates and beginners. The deep breathing throughout is relaxing and the sound of the waves in the background make this a very soothing workout.
