Giorgi teaches what she calls her, Just b Method. It's a Pilates fusion style that I think she carries off very well. Giorgi awakened our inner dancers with her Pilates/ballet DVDs. She even won a Pilates Style Magazine award for her first Pilates/ballet DVD, Attitude Ballet Pilates Fusion. Now she's on to the Pilates magic circle.
In the DVD, The Pilates Circle Challenge, we get some inventive Pilates circle moves that will definitely work your core and bring about good overall body tone (lookout butt).
On her site, Giorgi describes this DVD as gentle, yet intense. I agree. I actually had to switch mid-workout from my heavy duty Stott Pilates circle to the lighter circle that came with my Winsor Pilates sculpting DVD. So it's a tough enough workout, but it has good flow, and Giorgi coaxes us into it with such a calm, pleasant voice you might think she was serving tea!
I do think you need to bring some Pilates experience to this DVD. It's a straight forward workout that goes right through without a lot alignment cues, or reminders about landmarks of the exercises. Not that Giorgi doesn't give any good cues, she does. But overall, the fundamentals and a basic familiarity with beginner mat exercises are assumed.
Pilates fusion DVDs help keep things interesting as long as they demonstrate of the fundamentals of Pilates form and movement. A little variety in our workouts now and then can be a very good thing. Bernadette Giorgi's Pilates Circle Challenge will fit right into the "good Pilates fusion DVD" section of your library (Not that you should leave it on the shelf).
Bernadette Giorgi has also published a Power Ball Sculpting DVD done with small toning balls.
