But this book begins slowly and teaches the concept slowly using the first exercises to learn the technique.. of breathing and moving in sinc. By using Lynne Robinsons video to learn to breath and begin the process, along ith this book to begin the gentle moves.. I have found a system for me..

    Absolutely delighted with the clear, concise way this book has been put together for teaching the Pilates method. Excellent photographs to show all positions. A book well suited to the older person especially those wanting to take control of their lazy tummy muscles again. (Tip: I use a child’s soccer ball instead of the cushion or bolster which is suggested.) Congratulations to the instructor, author and publisher. A very delighted reader and practitioner at home who did not want to join a class.
