Discover what it's like to work out to the words and images of Joe Pilates himself, as written in his 1945 book, Return to Life. Alisa reads Joe's own text and demonstrates the movements. If you're already familiar with the classical mat exercises you'll be surprised at the differences! For instance, his instruction for breathing is very specific and can make rolling exercises much more effective, while "spread your legs as wide as possible" is a word-for-word Joe cue that is sure to make your Open Leg Rocker a lot harder. Enjoy this trip back in time to Joe's teaching circa 1945, there's a lot to learn about how we do the exercises now. Filmed at Pilatesology Studio.

    Wow, this was so incredible! I’ve only ever done Denise Austin’s Pilates/Yoga mat routine, but this was next level awesome! I feel super energized and stretched out! Thanks so much! Great instructor vibe also 🙂 🙂
