Practice at home

If you want to do some extra Pilates practice at home, then there are masses of books and DVDs available. The difficulty is choosing one that is suitable for you. I recommend:

  • The Pilates Bible’ by Lynne Robinson, Lisa Bradshaw and Nathan Gardner – this is produced by the organisiation that I trained with and has most of the exercises that we do in class
  • The Pilates Body Kit‘ by Brooke Siler – an audio CD kit with flash cards – I used this for practice when I was training – note that her definitions of ‘beginner’ and ‘intermediate’ are based on the classical repertoire and are more advanced than mine
  • Stott Pilates DVDs – Stott have a huge range of DVDs so you should be able to find one that suits you
