Quelle superbe façon de commencer la journée ! Un bien être qui se diffuse lentement et demeure présent pour embrasser les heures qui nous attendent.

A little slow for me, but liked how he explained the breathing.

You have to find time to do the longer workouts so this was a great one for wake up on Saturday morning for me :) My body is so warm and buzzing now. Beautiful slow, deliberate and then harder towards the end. This was the first time I could successfully complete pushups, bent leg of course. Looking forward to doing this one again! Thank you Nico for the gentle, relaxing and kind words for the body to get itself to the next level!

Thank you so much for the comment, @JUSTINEK. I'm glad you enjoyed it. In the end, going slower makes it harder so we get stronger.

Starts out slow...then the core work is intense. Loved it. I felt I needed atlas one down dog though...

Thanks for the comment, @ENERGIAYOGA! Remember to give your self permission to modify anything and do as many down dogs as you need, always.

Nico has a wonderful gift of delivering cues that help fine tune awareness of the muscles and areas being worked. I found The exercises and asanas blended very smoothlly and I enjoyed this class very much. It felt like a complete self-body massage afterwards. I've done a yoga class of his and love his gentle, soothing voice too! Thank you, Nico!

You are so generous with your comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the video.

I loved the instruction - have a slight shoulder injury so couldn't do all the push ups and side planks but learned a lot - and feel like every part of my spine got a workout. Thank you. :)

Thank you so much for this class. I love the centering and balance created by yoga but also love the toning and strengthening that pilates provides. The combination of the two in this class was just what I was looking for. Much appreciated. Hope to see more from you soon... perhaps incorporating the warrior poses? ;) Thanks again! Loved it!

I love pilates. My personal self-sequenced practice is 75% yoga and 25% pilates. This practice reverses the ratio. Sometimes (OK, frequently) I can't get to pilates class ....

kburka, posted on November 15, 2012

this is straight pilates,where is the yoga?? i'm disappointed.

I am so thankful for the speed of this class. I'm still fairly new and this is perfectly slow enough for me to really know what I'm supposed to be feeling. Awesome.

his voice is like honey. this class is great. nice core work mixed with stretching. loved it!

mrenkow, posted on November 25, 2011

This was a solid, challenging class. It moves relatively slow and is more pilates than yoga.

Aloha, I really enjoyed the workout, it was effective, slow & precise. Slower movements make the muscles work harder :-) Nico's instruction is great! From the leg circles on, I found the music to be a bit creepy ~ down...Any chance you can change the music?

Hi Sue: Thanks for your kind words. Answering to your question regarding how often to do this class I believe it all depends on what you are looking for. In general having a varied practice of different styles and intensities keeps the body receptive and the mind alert to what's coming next. However, if you have a specific area to develop is good to choose practices that target your needs. Does that makes sense? Maybe try this class a few times a week and combine it with other style that complements it. All the best, n

Love this class! I've done it only twice so far but I've never looked forward to getting back to the mat as I have with this class. For me, Nico's instruction is so steady, precise and easy to follow, that it immediately puts me at ease and I don't feel hurried or have a need to do more than I can at any moment during the class. I do have a question Nico.....I'm working on trying to strengthen my back. How many times a week do you recommend doing this class so I don't over do it. I would love to do this class everyday but I'm afraid that my be pushing it. I would love to see more classes from you and I look forward to trying out your other classes! thanks! ;-)

many thanks Nico - brilliant class!

karmalarm, posted on January 14, 2011

i agree with sstocks. this was more like regular mat pilates in slow motion, rather than an actual combination of yoga and pilates. some of the poses are challenging, but i found it to be really boring.

svc2381, posted on November 25, 2010

Great and Challenging work out.

zenkc, posted on November 1, 2010

I really appreciate the clear instruction and demonstration of each move. I also really like learning how to breath with each exercise. As someone who likes to do both pilates and yoga, this class is a great combination for me.Thank you

sstocks, posted on September 4, 2010

Expecting this to be a little more yoga and not so much like a regular mat pilates class just in slow motion.
Somewhat disappointed, but excellent workout.

christopherwdaley, posted on July 8, 2010

This is an excellent and rejuvinating workout. Nico has a great way of walking you through the different poses and has created a class that you can intensify as you move forward.

treehugger, posted on June 8, 2010

I really liked this class, I fancied an extra core workout but didnt want to stray too far from yoga, and boy did this do the trick! Dont be put off if yr a beginner, Nico gives all the alternative postures and its all pretty much mat work so not too strenuos! Thanks Nico :)

LisaRhea, posted on March 13, 2009

I agree that this video was challenging. Some of those moves were really taxing.

gcapitolo, posted on March 6, 2009

Really cool but a bit more intense then I was expecting. Great workout!!! Thank you very much!
