Episode 1 - Thanks Order Of The Pilates Exercises: Mat Transitions With Andrea Maida | True Pilates Solana Beach

Working steadily and at a brisk pace, these effective transitions on the mat will allow you to finish all 38 exercises in about 25 minutes. If this series of exercises is still quite a challenge and you are not in the custom of doing them all in rapid succession, please take care of yourselves.
