Classical Pilates technique videos feature two of the most renowned Pilates professionals in the world, master instructor Bob Liekens and commentator Alycea Ungaro, who uphold the tradition and high ideals of Joseph Pilates' original New York City Studio, which began during the 1920s. Classical Pilates shows good fundamentals of using the magic circle, and then demonstrates a solid beginning workout. After that, they take you into a realm where only the most highly trained classical instructors can demonstrate effectively: a beautiful intermediate level and an advanced level that is superbly executed. As if all of these workouts were not enough, there is also the Reformer Mat workout. This workout is a sight to behold.
