You're right - it's the yoga one that is my desert island candidate, and Fatkat is going for the ballet one - but I remember liking all three!

Hm, what is it about the yoga ... the pace, the level - doable but challenging - and Janice's instruction and vibe: clear, matter-of-fact, calming.

Here's a thread with more info on all three workouts. I really did like the ballet as well as the yoga... now I want to do them both again this week.

Anyone know what level the pilates DVD is?
Beginner, intermediate, advanced?

Thanks everyone for enabling me! I have ordered Janice’s set. I think this will be perfect to help me to recover from a lower back injury from a recent fall from an extension ladder.

Janice is amazing. I have her yoga DVD and love it.

What I like about it:

Her incredible grace

Her voice

The way it flows

The music

The set

I feel like I am at a private lesson, because she is practicing solo.

Note--Janice does not offer modifications and there are a few things she can do that I simply can't, so I self-modify. If someone wants form tips and modifications, they aren't there. This isn't a criticism, merely an observation.

The other thing I really like about the yoga video is that while Janice is an older instructor, the level of this video is not aimed at beginners or the infirm. Janice is not Jane Adams, in other words.

I've seen clips of Janice's pilates and barre videos and they aren't for beginners to my eye. Janice is a trained ballerina and has been teaching for years. It really shows. I find her incredibly inspiring.

Thanks for your comments on the yoga video, Betsy. You and Laura have definitely tempted me on that one. Do I *need* another yoga dvd? No, but do I want it? Yes......
