I try to stay up on significant trends in Pilates. But there is one trend, Malibu Pilates, that I've had a hard time embracing. I've been curious enough to look at some ads and check out the Malibu Pilates website. So far, I've got a sense that Malibu Pilates might be another Pilates knock off that is mostly about looks and not tuned in at all to the other aspects of Pilates that I consider critical like core strength, alignment, and the body/mind connection as reflected in the Pilates principles.
But I don't want to judge Malibu Pilates without really knowing about it. I've been asking around and so far I haven't found anyone at the studio or in my area who has the Malibu Pilates chair and DVD. I'm also doubting that Malibu Pilates is going to up and send me a chair and DVD to review (who knows?). So in the meantime, I'm asking you. Have you tried the Malibu Pilates workout? Did you like it or not? Why? Please leave a comment below and tell me what you think.
