Being Reinterduced to Pilates

I really loved this class since I haven’t done Pilates in years. I’m also glad to know I wasn’t the only experiencing video problems with this video.

Great class! One video problem

Hi! Super class -- I'm an advanced Pilates practitioner with an injury, and this was a terrific class for me. Only problem is that about a third of the way into the video, the visual part stops for about 1-2 minutes. Kathi's voice goes on, but not the picture. Otherwise, fabulous!! Thanks!

Hi. I'm not experiencing that when I play the video. Can you tell me exactly where it starts and stops for you?

Good class to get back into it

I hadn't done pilates for a while and this gave me a good reminder of the sensation I should look for when doing pilates. I like that instructions are given along the way as I don't find it easy to look at my screen during the class, and it could be armful! I can't wait to do more pilates classes with Kathi! Thank you again.

Thanks to Kathy Ellis, inviting in beginners
