The information on the back of the DVD says: “Core Strength Pilates offers subtle yet dynamic flow, giving it a unique edge rarely found in a mat workout.” I agree with the statement above. This DVD is a blend of Pilates and stretching and breathing. James D’Silva constantly reminds you to breathe, which is essential with Pilates and every day life.
James D’Silva’s (he is the fitness guru that leads the workout) approach to the routine is quite unique. Not only does he include some of the traditional Pilates exercises but he infuses the routine with some new moves. His instructions were detailed and clear to understand. I was very pleased with the workout. The background was green and lush and very relaxing. The DVD was filmed in Italy on a terrace.
As a bonus an organic cooking segment with Trudie Styler’s and Stings chef is featured on the DVD. This DVD is worth ordering.
