Plank, Cobra and Downward Facing Dog form the basis of the workout and give a good upper body workout. In 45 minutes you will be doing the following exercises:
Active Moving Cat
Single Leg Kicks
Pelvic Lift with Leg Extension
A rolling Teaser and moving Bridge make the moves more challenging. Throughout the workout the cueing is beautifully precise. Alanna Zabel has a pleasant personality and her voice is very calming.
While the first half of the exercises require a lot of upper body strength, it is worth the effort. This may be slightly wrist intensive at the start but you can always rest in Child's pose for a few seconds to relieve the arms and wrists.
I can highly recommend this to anyone moving from intermediate to advanced. This workout will help you burn calories and keep you strengthened and toned all over. If you want to continue working out after the main workout there is a six-minute super intense abs blaster workout.
~The Rebecca Review
For instance, early in the workout, you are asked to do a plank and then raise one leg in back and just hover there for a long time, then lower your arms and be on your knees while keeping your leg up. Not a move that is so simple, especially for the novice. I actually found this workout induces dizziness and nausea, because you spend so much time dropping back to the floor and looking downward. Very frustrating, and though I'm not in super-duper shape, I'm in better shape than many who would attempt this, yet I find it a difficult, practically impossible workout to do in the way that she's instructing.
I wish I had bought a better DVD for Pilates. I'll have to keep trying.
