    Great class, AND great pants!! Where did you get them?! 🙂

      HI there – Thanks so much for watching! I love these pants too – I found them randomly at Bloomingdale’s. They are available online I think as well – they are the brand Zara. Long live emoji 😉

    I loved this workout. Good pace allowing for better form. It’s challenging enough (worked up a sweat!) but felt good about being able to do all of the exercises. Thanks Andrea!

    Great class Andrea! Loved the focus of this workout! Liked the cue to ‘push your feet into the floor’ even when the floor isn’t there, so to speak! I found this helped to fire up the back of my legs and find that elusive (for me????) lift in the back! #gettingmy2waystretchon ????????
    I’ll be practicing this one again!
    Oh, and I think I recognize your assistant !! ????
    Big thanks again for your generous teaching xoxo

      Hi Alessandra,

      Thanks so much for watching and chatting here. Yes I find any help to get the lower body fired up is so beneficial 🙂 I am very fortunate to have the lovely Samantha with me for this one LOL. So glad you enjoyed this video and keep up the good work! #getthat2waystretch

    Thanks Andrea! that is great way to keep my body connects with the principals as Joe Pilates said. And you are a perfect teacher to me today!
    Practice, practice and keep practice is my daily motivation as a ethereal student.
    Using our imagination and concentration give to my body the sense relax and at the same time building stamina. All my love from Virginia, Cave Spring and see you soon!
