Editorial Reviews

Pure Yoga Pilates is a combination of both the Pilates method and the flow of Power Yoga. This DVD is recommended for those with prior knowledge or awareness of either technique. Filmed in the lush mountains of Central Pennsylvania, overlooking scenic Penns View, in Coburn, PA...allow yourself to escape your day, while exercising your mind and body. The DVD contains two, time-efficient segments of forty minutes each, to fit into your busy life and schedule. The Pilates Segment A system of strengthening and stretching exercises, performed in a sequential order. Once you experience Pilates it will change your life! The PowerYoga Segment - Based on Hatha Yoga, this is a non-stop flow that feels cardiovascular. Balance is also a large focus as is your inner strength. A prior knowledge of Hatha Yoga, Bikram, or Ashtanga is a bonus.

I studied with Kerry while a graduate student at PSU and I was amazed at how well I was able to tone my body supplementing my cardio workouts with her core classes. I took her Pilates, Yogilates and Body Bar classes. I can honestly say that it was because of Kerry that I took the time to become a certified Pilates mat instructor.

This DVD provides an excellent combination of Pilates and Power Yoga! I have been alternating the 40 minute sessions each evening, five days per week and I can already see and feel a difference in my body. It is the closest I can get to being back in her studio.

I would highly recommend this DVD. And if you would like more information on the instructor, her website is here: [...]

I don't like yoga. But I'm into it now thanks to Kerry Bestwick. This is a great DVD where you can alternate between Pilates and Yoga. Both workouts are challenging and make my body feel great. Not too slow and not too fast... this DVD stikes the perfect balance.

This is a pretty good paced DVD. It's not necessarily for brand new beginners. It's better if you know some of the poses already. The pacing wasn't too slow or too fast, but some of the poses are more difficult, especially for someone like me who's new-ish to yoga (I knew most of the poses already). I would think for more advanced practitioners, this would not be enough for them. She also doesn't explain or offer modifications to some of the more difficult poses.

I also did the Pilates part. I'm new to Pilates and it was rather challenging for my core muscles. I'm hoping it will get easier with practice.

Overall a good DVD that I like, that I will cycle through.

I have been doing yoga/pilates dvd's for a few years now and so I have a basic understanding of certain poses, which I recommend for those who are interested in this DVD. While she does explain the poses, it is brief and expected for you to follow her voice as she flows through (rather than glancing up at the tv screen for guidance). Her voice is extremely soothing and her english accent is comforting. My favorite part is the end where she describes the relaxation process. This video also includes a few balancing poses that I could not master, but with a few tries I'm sure I'll get there. I recommend this video for those with a basic understanding of Yoga/Pilates and those that are slightly flexible.

This is one of my better yoga DVDs. The instruction is very good, and the instructor's British accent is pleasing without being distracting. It is shorter - at 40 minutes, it is a little easier to squeeze in in the morning. I tried the pilates routine (also 40 minutes) once, but I prefer yoga, and my abs hurt the day after the pilates routine. I'm sure it is good but I prefer yoga. The yoga segment is very good and has a nice amount of time for warmup and savasana at the end, with good guidance for savasana.

I really enjoy doing yoga outdoors, so when I saw a video that was filmed outdoors, I was really excited. And to my relief, the workouts were as nice as the scenery. I use this video to supplement marathon training and skiing in the winter. I have found that if I have a great video and can do it in my home I can afford to do yoga. Hopefully Kerry will make another video soon. My highest recommendation for those with some beginning yoga and pilates experience.
