Born in Toronto, Nicole Kantas returned from Greece at age 10 when she began private aerobics and dance classes in downtown Toronto. At an early age, she fell in love with the sensations of breath and body movement and vowed to learn everything there was to know about the human body and the internal rhythm and language connecting the mind, body and soul. In 1999, she was reintroduced to this world of movement through yoga, which conquered her heart and raised her awareness about her own body. Trained in a variety of yoga disciplines including Hatha, Ashtanga, restorative yoga therapy, pre-natal yoga and Annusara yoga, she currently offers free classes on the Internet and shares this amazing, unique fusion of yoga and Pilates with the world.
This is a very relaxing workout, but not not difficult and the high basic or intermediate will be looking to a second work out tape after for exercise. However Nicole does work muscle groups in novel ways. I enjoyed it for stress relief and relaxation. The higher score is for the relaxing environment, nice music, good verbal directions, and high production quality.
Yogalates is a more strenuous workout. For three months I have been alternating these workouts, doing one every day. Within two weeks of starting this program my chronic back pain had vanished and I had much more energy. Within a month, people began mentioning that I look thinner, although I've only actually lost about 5 pounds (25 to go). I'm 60 years old, and feel healthier than I have felt in 20 years.
