    Such a wonderful video! Thanks you Andrea and Joe for being a couple together on this journey. It was both a great beginner’s workout and beautiful dance of trust and support between two people.

    Hi Andrea, That was such a great class. We can never underestimate the power of the basics. It’s so good to refresh them. It would be great to see you taking Joe through another class with the added exercises as he progresses through the repertoire, Well done to your husband Joe too!!:)

    Great workout! It’s never easy teaching to family, especially spouses.

      Thanks so much! Yes, My latest project is to get him to use this video to practice his workout – LOL. Wish me luck! Thank you so much for watching πŸ™‚

    I had this playing when my husband was home on a Sunday afternoon… he walked by, noticed Joe and I said, “oh look, you can let her teach you….,wouldn’t that be nice?” I think he heard you call your husband’s name and thought I called him. (his name is Jim) Nice flow of workout with all the perfect amount of cues for limited attention spans πŸ™‚ I joke, not too wordy, but so many great set-up cues! Thanks guys!

      Thank you so much for your lovely message. That video is the most instruction at one time that I have given Joe – I was certainly conscious that it was a video that people would need to follow so I had to say something, but I wanted to not overload him with chatter to the point where he was annoyed with his wife correcting his every move – LOL. Always a delicate balance, so I thank you for your feedback, truly appreciated. And funny that Jim perked up at hearing Joe πŸ™‚ Thank you for watching and sharing your comments.


    Thank you Andrea. Great work with your husband. Never easy to teach your own family. I teach my daughter on a weekly base πŸ™‚

      Thanks Reiner! Good for you – You are right, teaching family or your spouse can be challenging. This video is the most instruction I have given to my husband – ha ha. Usually he does the Mat with his list, but I hope he will do some more Reformer on his own too πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for watching and sharing your comments πŸ™‚

    Loved the giggles brought on by the Knee Stretch Series because if we weren’t laughing we’d be crying! Excellent work both of you.

      Thank you so much pilatesgal50. Yes, I often like to refer to the knee stretches as “the beginning of the end.” That kinda makes me laugh too πŸ™‚ Thanks for watching and for sharing your comments – Joe did such a great job on his Reformer…ha ha our poor husbands!

    Luz – so glad you like this workout! So excited that I could be of help to you and yours and your teaching. I look forward to our next Reformer workout together πŸ™‚ PS. We’ll always have Windsor…
