I feel like I've just been for a massage or shiatsu session after doing this - everything is eased out and re-balanced. Perfect for after a day of sitting at the office, thank you.

I really love all of your videos, they are perfect for my needs and I feel so much better after a session. I'm 61 and most often other videos are too much for me to do, but your videos allow for adjustments based on a person's functional level and the pace set is one I can keep up with. I'm so glad you're on Giam TV, it's a great way to start my day1

Every time I try your videos, I receive a gift of moving in a way I didn't know I had in me. You give so much in your teaching expertise and compassion for beginners.

The own this video button seems to be missing. I want to buy my favorite videos before you take them off the site. How do I now do this?

Anita's classes are killer! This class in particular was focused on abs and glutes. I know I'm going to be sore tomorrow. Thank you, Anita!

Great class and I really appreciated the references to specific muscle groups in relation to the movements.

The class is amazing ! i love the combination of spinal connection recognition incorporated into a palates movement. Very easy to follow! great relaxing work out ! energizes me every morning before class!!!

This is a great class! I love her explanation of the movement and exactly what muscle is leading and initiating the specific movement. I love to see more of Anitas classes on here!!

I am new to Pilates and I found this hard to follow. I would have liked more directions that specified lead with the Right or Left hand or foot. I also would have liked some explaination of what the pose should look like before moving into the movement, especially with the twists towards the end. Maybe more advanced students can move into this quickly, but for those of us who are new, can you explain where the arms and legs are (and if the left and right are in different places please explain which ones are where) while the more advanced students have started?

I diagree that this isn't challenging. I agree with the comment that if you do the poses properly, they are very, very challenging, as I am very athletic and an avid ashtanga practitioner, and this focuses on those spots that ashtanga fails to "catch."

A good fast-moving class. I felt just the right amount of challenge.

Anita is an outstanding teacher! I love the manner in which she incorporates various somatic modalities (Bartinieff fundamentals, Franklin method etc...) into her Pilates classes. Her language, directions, and movement sequences are wonderful.

I love this class. So thoughtful and effective, a little like a Feldenkrais-method class.

I think Anita\'s classes are more about precision and alignment and control than just fitness. Pilates is all about proper form. If you do the poses right they are very very challenging.

I was expecting for a level 3 a much harder class, but this is really a level 1; although there were some nice stretch moves, I didn\'t break a sweat for the entire 33 minutes. Just so I feel I\'ve done something a little challenging, I\'m going to finish up with Nico Luce\'s 15 minute pilates, which feels much more challenging than this just nice pilates class.

This is an excellent class. Please more classes from Anita. Thank you.
