Pilates is a full-body conditioning exercise program that uses a series of machines and exercises. It works the entire body, both the right and left sides, in unison. It focuses primarily on what Joseph Pilates called the “powerhouse,” the group of muscles that begins two inches above and below your navel, then wraps completely around your front and back–kind of like a corset. It also includes your buttocks.
The DVD features the Pilates Beginning Mat Workout, plus a bonus workout and interview with instructor Ana Caban.
