I received my copy quickly and in good condition, except it was originally (accidentally, I imagine) delivered to my neighbor instead. The only reason I am so far giving it 4 stars is simply because I haven't tried any exercises yet, to speak for how well I do putting the instructions in action.

Having gone through it, page by page, I believe this may be a good text for me, starting truly from square one in Pilates. There's explanatory information in the beginning, explaining the origins of the regimen, common terminology, posture, etc.

Then the mat program is then broken down into levels: introduction, beginner's, intermediate, & advanced level. The exercises are given step by step with notes, as well as a series of photos showing the entire progression of the exercise. There are cautionary notes, variations, & adaptations as well. Photos also show examples of doing the exercise incorrectly.

Each chapter builds on the previous one. Photos at the beginning of the chapters show you what that level's exercise routine entails, with what page number you will find that exercise. There's also an index and a small section of resources.

I like that you are not required to purchase a large number of expensive accessories. I think this will be a very good text for familiarizing myself with it, until I work out getting into a class or lessons with an instructor.

I have 2 books on yoga, for the same reason (I work part-time, so don't attend a studio yet). I think they are complementary. I would definitely suggest this as a good resource on Pilates.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 My favorite Pilates book !!! 28 juin 2014

I bought both this book (Pilates: Body in Motion by Alycea Ungaro) and The Pilates Body by Brooke Siler and I'm glad that I bought both.

For me, a total beginner at Pilates who is taking 1 beginner mat group class a week at a local Pilates studio, I needed something to guide me at home so that I could do Pilates workouts several times a week.

I think that Pilates: Body in Motion is better for learning the exercises because the photos are better and they show the whole sequence. But I have also found that if I read both books' descriptions of a particular exercise that I get the benefit of 2 of the most highly respected Pilates trainers in the world. So it's a win/win to have both books. Also, instead of doing the same Modified Beginner or Beginner sequence each time from one of the books, I can alternate days by doing the Modified Beginner/Beginner in the other book. That gives me some variety.. although they are, of course, similar.

The long and the short of it is.... I highly recommend both books and am very glad that I purchased both.

The other thing that I use regularly is the DVD Pilates Workout for Dummies with Michelle Dozois. I bought several beginner Pilates DVDs and that is my favorite. My 2nd favorite is Hilary Burnett's Pilates Basics which is short, but very very good for beginners. She also has an Intermediate level DVD which I am not ready for... yet.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Book... But I've found others I like better 26 août 2013

The illustrations and text are descriptions are helpful for those looking to learn traditional Pilates. If you're looking to practice the traditional Pilates method I would recommend this book. However, if you have injuries, weaknesses, or just an unbalanced body (which most of us do) I would highly recommend STOTT Pilates (uses props to prevent injury) over Joseph Pilates' traditional method (taught in this book).

I've used a couple of DVDs to learn Pilates (no, I can't afford classes) and they just did not inspire me to keep with the routine. I've been using this book for just a few days but I find that #1 I like a book better because I can go at my own pace and there is no annoying music or shrill instructor's voice and #2 the book has a refreshing lack of motivational yada-yada and instead goes on the assumption that you CAN do it, and since you bought the book you already WANT to do it.

The photos are clear and understandable and I also appreciated the breathing instructions, the Cautions (for example, "If you experience back pain while holding your legs up...") and the Visualizations ("Imagine molding your body into the shape of a tremendous horseshoe"). Each exercise includes a photo of what you may be doing incorrectly, and a "Head-to-toe checklist". The emphasis is on doing each exercise as perfectly to form as possible and becoming strong and controlled; not on doing more, faster, or how skinny you're supposed to get.

All the exercises are for the mat or the wall, so no equipment or gadgets are needed, either. Great book!!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent explanations and graphics 3 juillet 2013

A pilates instructor is a must, no book will replace an instructor. Hence, if you are a pilates beginner that is training with an instructor, this book is a fantastic addition to your home routine. It provides excellent tips and the pictures really depict each single important movement for each pilates exercise. It has three levels, beginner, intermediate and advanced. So positions for each level are carefully explained. This is critical, if you are a beginner and you are in great shape (in pilates means that you are flexible for deep stretching), you might be able to do the same exercise in a complete different position than someone who is a beginner and is not flexible enough. The book shows all the positions for these three levels of body flexibility. Although the pictures show the models exercising in yoga mats, it is not a good idea to practice in a yoga mat. Use a good quality folding mat (even more if you have a lean body structure).
