The Pilates Body Ball Work out uses a small 4 " diameter 1 or 2# ball. She uses the ball to add stress to the abs by holing it out or over head. This is my toughest Pilates tape. You need to be familiar with the quing and probably at least intermediate ability. The tape is 35 minutes long. It seems longer. The setting is at Maui. It follows a typical intermediate routine except it adds the ball as resistance.
The next day I am usually sore which is unusual for me. This tape is for people that want a challenge or to get past a plateau or sticking point. Definately not for the beginner.
Anna Caban is a true Pilates instructor trained at the NY studio.
I have been doing Pilates at home and in a studio for about 6 years. I use Pilates as rehab. after a back operation 10 years ago. Anna's Beginner video is the first one I bought and I still ocasionally use it when I want a mild quick workout. Pilates has helped my back a great deal. I like Anna's tapes because she rehabilitated a back injury herself.
