    Andrea, I just wanted to high five you at the end! Such an efficient workout and your giddy personality made it so much fun! Now, if I could only get my husband to do it with me 🙂 Thank you!!

      You nailed it – LOL. Pilates makes me giddy, I had fun too 🙂 See if you can lure your husband to the Mat with a pre-Pilates hug? Thank you so much for watching!

    This is a great workout when you are short of time…….great tempo, nice form,liked how you kept the boomerang moving and all the rolling exercises, I know you must have felt fabulous after that. I am going to do it now! Woohoo!

    I am a sweaty mess! Fantastic cues, especially during side bends! I have weak wrists from years of flute playing, so I usually collapse during side bend. I did it on both sides today because of your cues to focus more on the lower body. Thank you!

    • Andrea Maida Author

      Good for you ellaerin 🙂 I am slowly discovering that many of the challenging exercises are more lower body exercises that I have been trying to do with my upper body for years – LOL. Glad this one was a help to your Side Bend!!
