Siler is a true pilates expert.
on April 9, 2014
Siler is, without a doubt, one of the most credible names in pilates. Her description of posture, breathing and technique are exceptionally solid. On top of this, the book is a very easy read and has a lot of photos that help ensure that the user is properly practicing. I think it would be more useful if there was a DVD to accompany this because it would save all the time of having to go back to the book and would let the poses be seen in action to ensure they are executed to the end in the appropriate manner. There are a lot of clever ways to include pilates techniques in various practices. I also really appreciate the new routines. I have been practicing pilates for about 4 years and it has seriously eradicated my back pain. Part of that credit belong to Siler and this book. I recommend this to anyone who wants to try the discipline, but I would also recommend that they go to a pilates studio or buy a DVD to guarantee that the basic poses are correct while minimizing injury.
