Hi Carrie! I am not new to Pilates but I have made a looong pause! I loved the first day abdominals and am looking forward to the rest of the 10 day challange. The pace is a little fast for someone who didn’t do pilates in a while.
This is WAY too fast to be labeled "deliberate pace." It also doesn't have the proper cues for those of us who use pilates to work on alignment and rehab, and I felt like I was in serious danger of hurting myself multiple times during this class. This reminded me more of an intense non-pilates workout on the pelaton app that I need to avoid so I don't injure myself. Pilates anytime or Carrie, please relabel this class.
Deborah B ~ Thank you for your feedback. Compared to our other paced classes, this class still fits the deliberate category as Carrie takes her time explaining each exercise and has a slow and steady pace throughout. We're sorry that this class did not work for you and we're happy to help you find the right content for you. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like recommendations.
Love your class. It's my 20min go-to when I want to lift my energy and move in to the next phase of my day. It was a good level of tricky when I first did it but now I'm on my 5th go - I'm rocking it ! Really enjoy the next (extension) class too. Thank you!
