This approximately 50-minute workout combines two traditions of Pilates matwork exercises: traditional moves and moves adapted from the reformer and other such machines.
The workout starts with a controlled sit down. The moves include footwork (4 variations), the hundred (doing 5 inhales / 5 exhales, 4/6, 3/7, 2/8, and 1/9), roll up (normal and double time), rollover, coordination, single leg circle with climb a tree, rolling like a ball, single leg stretch, double leg stretch, single straight leg stretch (normal and then double time with no arms), double straight leg stretch, criss cross (normal and double time), “advanced criss cross” (which involves rolling all the way from one side to the other), “little piece of heaven” (i.e. shell stretch or child’s pose), spine stretch forward, open leg rocker, jackknife, rowing (5-6 variations), neck rolls, swan dive, “little piece of heaven,” pulling straps, double leg kick, swimming, “little piece of heaven,” backstroke, teaser (4 variations), short box (3 variations), side leg kick series (front & back, bicycle, rond du jambe, little circles, up & down, scissors), heel beats, frog? (not sure what the name of this one is, but it’s done prone and works the hamstrings and buttocks), “little piece of heaven,” elephant, (triceps) push ups, leg pull front, leg pull down, stomach massage (3 variations), butterfly stretch, overhead, chest expansion, kneeling side kick series (little circles and front & back), mermaid stretch, snake and twist, neck pull, boomerang-teaser series, saw, and seal.
Mari leaves time to get into each exercise, but she moves through the exercises quickly once she has set them up. Her double times are very quick, so you need to know what you’re doing or else you’ll feel like your limbs are flailing about. She does a decent number of repetitions, more rather than less.

Level: I’d recommend this to someone who’s practicing at least at a solidly intermediate through a low or maybe even mid-advanced level. Mari assumes you’re familiar with Pilates and have quite a bit of strength and flexibility, so she doesn’t spend on instruction, form tips, and breathing cues, nor does she provide modifications. I consider myself almost a solid intermediate; I have about three years of Pilates experience but am still working on improving my flexibility and strength. This workout was a bit much for me when I was a low intermediate.

Class: 3 “gals” perform the moves as Mari walks around.
Music: upbeat repetitive instrumental stuff that’s barely audible.

Set: Bright interior space with neutral-colored columns in between dark window frames with paper or some sort of similar material forming the panes. The exercisers are on raised platforms on top of the neutral carpet on top of wood floors.

Production: Clear picture and sound, with helpful camera angles.

Equipment: mat (or equivalent). All participants are barefoot.

Space Requirements: You should be able to lie down with arms and legs extended as well as to sweep your limbs to each side.

DVD Notes: There are short Guthy-Renker and Winsor Pilates intros you can’t skip. There’s another intro with Mari telling you how challenging the workout and reminding you of Pilates principles before the workout starts; this is in its own chapter. The workout itself is not chaptered, which is too bad.

Conclusion: This workout would be great for someone who devotes all or a significant part of an exercise session to Pilates alone. It’s too long for me; I prefer to do shorter sessions of Pilates daily.
Combining the traditional mat routine with reformer moves is a great idea, adding interest and variety to the usual Pilates routines. This is a great way to “cross train” within the traditional Pilates canon. Personally I prefer the More than Mat Pilates series, which only uses reformer moves. I feel there’s more explanation there about how to execute the reformer moves (plus demos of how the moves actually look on the original equipment), and Sarah Picot’s personality suits my taste a little better than Mari’s. You can find some reformer exercises also in Ana Caban’s Energy Boost Pilates 1 and Liz Gillies’ Progressive Pilates for Weight Loss (most of which are also on the bonus section on her Target Tone video).
