Does anyone else vibrate like crazy during the core exercises?

Great video, though beginners like myself may need to watch this multiple times to understand some of Kim's prompts.

the first six minutes were okay, then it began to get difficult for me

Fantastic class and teacher! I needed more of a challenge and am so not ready for intermediate classes, and this fit the bill perfectly.

After doing this workout for a few days I can feel my form getting better! The way Kim explains things makes so much sense and with the challenging moves in this workout I will never get bored! Kim is fantastic!

I wasn't sure what to expect from this video, but I was surprised at how well it worked all the target muscles! I'm currently working through "Yoga for Absolute Beginners" and this video made me realize that I'm now becoming more aware of the 5 Principles of Pilates.

Loved this video!!!

Woke up far tooooo early today! - Having time on my hands I thought I might just do a 20-30min yoga session. Something simple and easy to follow with a "half asleep brain" but also challenging for my "energized all awake body"

If you find yourself in such or similar situation, this is for you. No questions asked.

Wow, what a workout! You're right, such small movements but such great effort. I'll have to do this one for a few weeks before moving to the next one.
Love your style, Kim. :)

Love this video although with pilates and yoga I always have a problem with my hips. For instance in this vid, my hips pop when doing the leg lifts and its uncomfortable. What can I do to help?

definitely felt the burn in my legs/core while practicing this routine. i missed that feeling! this video motivated me to get more into pilates. Kim's friendly reminders are also on point. Thank you! :)

This work out was much harder than it looked, I had to pause a few times to drink from my water bottle! Trying to keep up with Kim is difficult and fun, I can't wait to learn more from her!
