    This is just what I need to get going! I still can’t bend over due to eye surgery, but the rest of the moves I could do. Thank you!

    I need exercises that don’t involve use of my neck muscles. After two surgeries on my neck it’s messed up☹️

    1. Hi Patty, We are sorry if you are experiencing any pain in your workouts. We encourage you to modify when needed or skip any exercises that cause you discomfort. Modifying is expected and a great way to gain strength on your journey. If you haven’t already seen it, you can find a video on Modifications for Neck Discomfort in your Workout Library.

  3. thanks for doing this standing routine! I filled out the survey saying that it was almost impossible to find space on the floor to put down my mat. So I appreciate your responding to that problem that many people don’t acknowledge….now I’m more determined to clear some space to do some more Pilates with you.

      Hi Jan, thank you for taking the time to share this! We value all the feedback and suggestions we receive and are so glad you enjoyed this standing Pilates routine. Keep up the great work!

  4. I thoroughly enjoyed this standing workout. Back surgery and neck surgery have limited my movement but this I could do without any pain. I originally signed up for the 5 day challenge but was unable to participate due to a very rough week of head pain due to Occipital Neuralgia. When I finally felt well enough, I went back to the emails but was too late. Is it possible to try again? Thank you for your response.

  5. Love these videos thank you for sharing them – love your voice and beach background and you modifications

  6. For some time now I have been neglecting my workouts. So, when I saw this 10 min standing pilates, I decided enough is enough and grabbed a mat and did it. You don’t know how great I feel that finally could do something to breakout of the rut I had been in. Thanks for all the inspiration and all the wonderful things you guys do.
