    I enjoyed the introduction discussion. It was just what I was looking for in adding variety to my classical mat pilates training. The workout was excellent. I liked the pace, constant flow and challenge. I will use the examples in my pilates classes.

    I like the way she put pilates with some yoga moves together.
