I'm 45 and never been particularly athletic. I was able to do the whole class easily. I'd say that the technical aspects of the class are "basic", it's more a matter of having a bit of strength. So, give it a try if you are a beginner and are willing to work on some basic strength.

Wow, just what I needed. With the quarantine going on I am able to keep my lower body in shape but feel like I've lost some upper body strength so this felt great. Lots of planks, whew! I am 60 and was able to do most all, just had to put my knees down a few times but that's it. Thank you, great, challenging class.

Everything flowed together smoothly and effortlessly yet remained challenging. Lost track of time and was surprised the end came so soon....want more!!! You have a wonderful way of explaining the poses and making adjustments. Superb instruction!

Wonderful butt-kicking and satisfying class. I feel energized and stretched, exausted and content. Thank you for your great sense of humor!

Wow - I've done the core section of this class countless times but for some reason had never done the full class before - it's amazing! What a great full body workout. I'm now making a point of doing it at least once a week. I'm not accustomed to mixing yoga with pilates (and I've never done a pilates class) but I really love this. Would love more Kim classes, she is fantastic!

Oh THANK YOU Kim!! You are a joyful, radiant ball of golden white light that has come to shine on us all! I'm filled with both Santosa (thank you for a new word) and quivering, deliciously exhausted core muscles!!! I will definitely be adding this one to my regular rotation. I can't thank you enough for this practice; I really needed this!

This really challenged my upper body strength and felt great! I appreciate the constant reminder to focus on core and not to use your back, as I have several back issues and when I get tired, tend to strain my back. You seemed to mention this each time I began to fall out of the core, and your direction is very easy to follow. I can't wait to do this class again and continue to work on myself.

Really great class with useful advice on how to place your body to get the right balance between stretching and working.Such little movements make a difference, and I love how the positions feel so right when everything is where it's meant to be. It's my aim to do ALL of this workout without needing to take a break to rest my core and leg muscles. My bum and my hamstrings are complaining after my first try at this one!

Kim, thank you so much for this fusion class! It was challenging yet still I was able to finish the whole class. Afterward I felt light, invigorated, and amazing! Also, you're not alone in that almond milk latte craving :)

I have done some short sessions "with Kim" and enjoyed them. I am so glad to have the time to do, or try to do, all of this class. I'm feeling good and anxious to feel how my muscles respond as my day progresses. Thanks!

Enjoyed the video, however, was expecting a little more intense session but will definitely do it again. Wishen there was a guided relaxation at the end. I believe that's what truly lets the yogi embrace and appreciate the work which had been done.

This is one of my favorite of Kim's excellent core fusion series. It is focused on the core, hips and arms, successively layering smaller muscle groups while keeping the core constantly engaged. A good indication that Kim's instruction and explanation are clear: I can do this series with my eyes closed. The cues for adjustments are spot on, always when I need them. The pacing is great for a one hour class, making it easy to amp it up or ease off depending on your desired intensity. She has a wonderful tone and positive energy that is infectious. I'm so grateful to Kim and DYWM for this butt kicking gift ;-) Namaste

I've been practicing with DYWM for over a year and just tried this video - what took me so long! It was one of the best classes I've done to date. I will definitely be coming back for more, Kim Wilson!

More from Kim, please! I don't care for Pilates but this fusion takes the best of Pilates and integrates it so well with yoga.

It was really nice to get a bit of relaxation in between each of the challenging sections. It really helped me get through the whole video.

This is a great class. Kim does really well with talking you thorough how to get the best out of the pose. I was surprised at how seemingly small movements can provide such a deep workout. Also, LOVED the stretching right above the hip points, this was a new experience for me, and now I crave it! Thanks for teaching me my new favorite stretch.
I'm collecting a list of free Yoga & Pilates videos and adding them to www.aeonfleur.com/fitnesslinks. Everyone please let me know if there are others you suggest trying. Sharing is caring!

All the comments about this video being hard but satisfying are true! I'm probably closer to beginner than intermediate, but I was still able to get a lot out of this video (though I did have to spend some of it in child's pose :P). I'll definitely be doing it again (and again and again), and look forward to getting to a point where I can master and reap the benefits of all the poses!

My only critique - and it's a tiny one - is that I wish the Savasana portion was a bit longer. That said, I know I can easily do that myself by simply remaining lying down instead of getting up when she says Namaste!

Anyway, strongly recommend this one!!

This class is hard, but very worthwhile. Only problem is that Kim spends a lot of time on her hands, and I have this wrist issue that I just can't remedy (not sure if it's strength or flexibility issues). I've done this twice now, and I really enjoy it. Thanks!

i wasnt in the mood for the gym today (and im fighting a terrible cold) so i figured id do a little yoga from the comfort of my own living room. this class was equally challenging, if not MORE SO, than anything i have ever taken before. it was just like being in the yoga studio with Kim. she has terrific energy and i pushed myself through the entire hour series. i LOVED the abs exercises! really looking forward to continuing and bettering my practice with this amazing website.

sending lots of love and gratitude from south florida!

I love how positive Kim is throughout this video. It really makes it better when you're panting your way through those bicycle kicks! But I really loved this video, I was looking for a workout to get my muscles going and I definitely found one. Thanks!

What an excellent video! This is the first video I've done on this site and I absolutely enjoyed every moment of Kim's instruction. Thank you for the wonderful video, I'll be incorporating this into my routine a couple times a week. I can't wait to be able to move through all the moves in full plank as Kim does!

Everything about this video is great!! Just the right amount of challenge without making it feel like a boot-camp. Love the way Kim giggles and jokes from time to time, really made it sweet and personal. The best thing about Kim's technique is how simply she explains each move!! I'm not a newbie but she really made transitions between certain poses so simple and smooth that I had not idea where she was heading with it until I would find myself in a pose I am well familiar with and no clue how I got there! Nice slight of hand there, Miss Kim! <3

Kim - You're awesome!

I'm a Yoga teacher here in Cali and I teach Yoga Pilates as well, so I was like "hm...wonder what challenging class I can find on the internet today..." and stubbled upon yours. O M G - just the right level of challenging and you inspired me to add some fun new moves to my classes.

I love your language and how clear you are! Can't wait to try out another class from you.

Thanks so much and keep'em coming.
