    Great! Thank you Sonje. I will be putting your commentary in my head for the series of 5. I was at Kathi’s Old School at the Ranch with you in March. I have to share with you that your work with me on the roll up using the Cadillac roll back bar and keeping knees bent and quads quiet has really improved my roll up on the mat. Thank you so much for that. I always kind of cheated my way through it, I knew it but I was just trying to survive it. Thank you for giving my roll up hope.

    Thank you Sonje, you’re a guru. I love observing your classes and learn so much listening to your explanations on how to execute the exercise correctly. Your comments on what not to do are very entertaining. Looking forward to more of your “observe and learn” videos. Regards Victoria

      I am delighted that you found that helpful. Yes, Alisa looks like a million dollars in that unitard!

      Hi darien! That unitard is from The Pilates Studio Brazil, Inelia Garcia’s group. It’s my favorite Pilates outfit, you never have to adjust anything and everyone looks great in it. She’s having a big conference in Lisbon this coming Oct 2019 I’m sure you could get them there, here’s their website store as well:
