Windsor pilates is supposed to be a hot pilates video in the fitness industry right now. I think there are several tapes with different levels of difficulty. Google it. I get a lot of fitness advertisements in email and regular mail and this seems to be one of the ones they push a lot. Denise Austins videos on pilates and yoga are supposed to good but are often beginner to intermediate level I think. Keep in mind I'm going by advertisements I haven't actually seen any of the tapes they just appear to be the tapes that get the most recognition, noteriety and sales according to the vender sending me the advertisements.

Edit: Sorry I did not notice SC already has the Windsor Pilates tape... Oops.

How is possible??

I think I'd like to try power yoga. I think I took a Bikram yoga class several years ago.

I wonder how big a difference there is between Power Yoga and Pilates??

Actually I used to be able to do that!!! I would probably break myself in two if I tried it now. When I was practicing yoga I got VERY flexible. I loved it. I almost taught. Now I'm as stiff as a board. It is true that "if you don't use it, you lose it"!! I want to get that flexibility back. I will try the Baptiste video and get back with you. I used to do the crow pose and loved it.....good upper body strength developer and it looks cool too.



never got this one though:

I take power yoga at my schools' rec gym ( my weight lifting is done at the athletic center, not the rec gym) and I really like it.
It's more of a stretch now, but in the beginning my legs shaked as I tried to hold poses longer and longer and go deeper in the pose. You can really sweat doing it too.

I bought Kundulini yoga and its more about the mind than the body.. i was wanting something a little more 'intense' so if you're looking for something hardcore, stay away

For someone who has never taken Yoga before I would recommend Hatha Yoga as it is a good blend of both the physical and mental aspects of Yoga without it being to weird. I haven't had a chance to do Piliates yet so I cant comment on that.
