    Alisa, we snowbirds are leaving Canada for the winter on New Year’s Eve to visit Australia and New Zealand by land, and then a two week cruise of Myanmar in March. There will be no internet on the boat in Myanmar. I want to buy your My Favourite Mat so I can work out while I’m on the cruise. But here’s my question: Is there any possibility of your Silence is Golden Mat becoming available offline? This one is MY favourite!

    I also love your Combo Platter Mat (having been a former dancer) and wonder whether you might create another combination video anytime soon? Love that fan kick!

      Rosemarie you’re the best! I love that you have favorites and YES I will totally do another Combo Platter for you–look for that in the New Year.
      It’s not possible for us to add more downloads at the moment but your request for Silence is Golden is noted. If we change those out in the future we’ll consider adding that one.
      Thanks for the requests!

    I loved this. Really meditative and relaxing, but at the same time a great workout. I also love how in the few workouts of yours that I’ve done, you include shoulder bridge, which is one of my favorites (and so important!).

    • Alisa Wyatt Author

      Yeah, Shoulder Bridge is a fave of mine too, opens up your hips and chest while making your backside happy. Thanks Amber!

    Super!

    Yes it puts more attention and a good kind of pressure back on us, and at the same time the serentiy of your delivery makes it one step closer to prayer.
    Large thanks.

    Alisa,
    You are by far my absolute favorite pilates instructor. I appreciate many of the pilates instructors for their different attributes. What makes your teaching outstanding is the clarity you bring to each exercise. I enjoyed this particular video very much. However, I hope you continue to be thorough in your verbal explanations as you always have been. This is your signature charm- your thorough explanation and how you break each movement down so it is done appropriately. It is as if you tell your students what you had to learn the hard way. I appreciate what you bring to each class you teach. Thank you for your technique, I hope you don’t alter it too much.

      Thank you so much, and don’t worry, it would be impossible to shut me up all of the time, lol!

    What is significant here to me as a home practitioner,and I think a little unique in Alisa’s work, is her use of breathing to substantially add to the level of difficulty throughout the practice.
    Particularly so, if we observe how her abdominals contract and her upper body levers up with her breath in ………
    1. In the HUNDRED the breathing really challenges the level of difficulty.
    2.In the Series of 5, in the Double leg Pull/Double Staight leg/Criss Cross
    how the breathing application really challenges the level of difficulty.
    Just my thoughts.

    • Alisa Wyatt Author

      That’s a great comment because the breathing is something I try hard to communicate without getting too overly focused on. Thank you!
