Who does pilates? I'd like to get a DVD to do on the days that I'm not going to the gym.
I've heard a lot of ladies say that pilates is a great way to build core strength, and strength in general!

If anyone does pilates, do you like it?

Can you recommend a DVD?

I currently don't but I have in the past. I have Denise Austin's Mat Workout (based on the work of JH Pilates). I liked it because there are 2 20-min. workouts plus a 10-min. lower body segment. It will totally kill your abs but it's relaxing at the same time. There is also some yoga in the second workout. I used to do the two workouts in a row and then it was a good 40 min. workout. Or one workout plus the lower body one. I would recommend it. I would say I like pilates but I am not a fan of yoga (for reasons other than its workout quality).

ETA: Do you want mine? I don't do it anymore. I should mail it to you.

I LOVE Pilates. Erin if Christa doesn't want your DVD, send it to me!!!

I've been doing Pilates as part of my burlesquercise class for about 2 months now and it is a GREAT workout. Do be sure to get a basic or beginner's DVD at first because getting your form right is essential to getting the most out of it. The key to remember is to picture yourself pushing your abs against your spine all the time. When you are lying down this means that instead of your back being arched over the mat, your back is flat on the floor.

You'll love it! It doesn't feel like a workout when you're doing it but as soon as you stop, you can totally feel it in your abs!

Christa, I am a pilates junky!!! The absolutely BEST pilates I have found is the Winsor Pilates. They aren't too difficult but aren't too weak either! Before Carter I lost 60lbs doing pilates!!!!! I am trying to start again but it's difficult to fit 20 minutes in for anything!!!!
