I have been doing a lot of the yoga classes on here for years, and felt like I wanted to change things up. This was a great introduction to pilates, and look forward to trying the 21 day challenge. Kathi was clear and concise. I had to watch the video a couple times for the hip sequence, as the camera angle was hard to see what was happening. Other then that great class!

Thanks! I should have started with this class before diving into the others. This was very well presented for us beginners!

My husband (a non-flexible person unfamiliar with Pilates and Yoga) and I worked on this class several times, essentially to introduce him to Pilates principles (and refresh my understanding of them). As simple as it seems these subtle movements are DIFFICULT (he soon discovered! :). Thanks Kathi for generously providing this opportunity during our quarantine away from home; it really helped to keep both of us physically and mentally healthy.

I am not that familiar with pilates and ths was a great intro. I plan to do the Pilates series on DYWM so I am thankful for this video and will pass it on to others who may want to try Pilates.

Fantastic prep. Easier to understand each time. Engaging the b line has been such a mystery to me, his is very helpful.

Even if you are familiar with Pilates, this is worth your time, even if you watch just the last five minute segment on ab prep. Very well done and useful tutorial DYWM! Thank you.

Never knew there was so much detail to know about Pilates. Liked that you mentioned your setting. One minor suggestion: Summarize by listing the 5 principles at end.
You met the high standard of the DoYogaWithMe quality program.
