Element: Accelerated Pilates with Resistance Band
Lisa Hubbard, 2012

This dvd includes a 30 min standing & floor pilates routine that utlizes a stretchy band that is included with the dvd. It also contains a 10 minute bonus core workout. The workout is set overlooking the gorgeous Pacific Ocean and is done in voice over.

Standing exercises include: abductions, leg circles, glute lift & balance work. Floor work includes: single leg stretch, roll-up & tri extension, bicycle, leg circles, and a side lying series including leg circles & leg sweeps. The workout concludes with superman work using the band to incorporate upper back and child pose.

The bonus core workout includes: crunches, oblique crunches, knee drops, single leg stretch, back stroke, the 100, and bicycle.

 I rate this a low intermediate pilates routine that is appropriate for most all exercisers by varying the tension on the band. Lisa does a fantastic job of emulating the pilates reformer and Cadillac and utilizes the band in all exercises. She is a very knowledgeable instructor and provides wonderful form pointers. I received this dvd to review.
