Hi guys. So glad you like my standing workout! I started doing this with my clients about a year ago. When you do this workout twice a week you burn so many calories-and definitely it is a fun alternative to the Mat exercises. Try doing the workout twice a week during January and let me know if you notice a difference!

Thank you June. I got so sick of doing traditional cardio that I stopped cardio for two years. I finally figured out a way to do a cardio calorie burning workout that incorporated all of the pilates that I love! This workout gives you the cardio and is also fun and goes by quickly!

Thank you Zayna! I had just asked for some cardio in the forums and you granted my wish! Awesome class.. so fun and inventive. Jamie

love doing cardio this way-after you learn the moves you start burning even more calories because your strong core helps you lift your legs higher and move more quickly but still with control. keep in touch!

It's about me coming to my Mat, and you coming to your Mat, and practicing the Pilates Method together.
