More challenging than I expected for such simple moves. Nice workout.

My whole body was hurting but I wanted to feel stronger. Julia’s practice guided me into a better mind set. She challenged me bit it wasn’t too much. Perfect

Good stretching. Very challenging balance. Not too long but enough to build some heat.

This was not my jam. I’ve never liked Pilates so I think that’s probably the root cause of my disappointment in this session. I felt there was not enough muscle prep for moving into the stretches or the body movements so everything just wound up feeling sudden. Also not intermediate level, more towards the advanced beginner level. I’ve done other Julia videos and liked her yoga a lot, so really I think I’m just not a Pilates person. But I wanted to give this a shot and I’m glad I did…for anyone who doesn’t like Pilates, I’d recommend a different video. If Pilates is your jam, you’ll probably enjoy this one. But it is not particularly difficult, so keep that in mind as well.

This practice felt great on my body after a long day of sitting. A really nice balance of stretching and contracting all those muscles. Thank you!

Confession time. I get in deep ruts and go to my usual teachers and the classes I know and love. Recently I have been venturing out to other teachers and other types of classes. This class by Julia was a new one and the only time I have gone to Julia for a class. Very glad I did. Just what I needed today. Thanks.

This would have made a MUCH BETTER class in the Power 22 challenge to understand--and be able to approach-Pilates. Julia is a very accessible teacher. Thanks.

I am 9 weeks pregnant and and have been incredibly nauseous and fatigued for about two weeks. This is my first practice since my mini-hiatus and it felt so good to be back on my mat with Julia’s straightforward and careful guidance. “Banana asana” is perfect for my growing belly and baby when some twists just don’t feel right. Thank you Julia for this yummy class!

First class with Julia and first class post-Christmas! What a great mix of stretching and balancing after a week of "shoulders up by my ears" holiday excitement. Feels so good to be back on the mat!
