Yoga and Pilates Fusion with Anita Seiz. Combining the best of both practices! This practice is great cross training for those who want to integrate a focus on core strengthening into their Yoga practice. The focus of this practice is on opening the hips and lower back in order to have better access to the deep core muscles. Avoid this practice if you have neck and shoulder injuries, low back injuries, and osteoporosis.

Anita - you seem like a kind person and are definitely talented. You have a calm and encouraging voice, and you make everything look easy. However, it was anything but easy for me. In fact, it was brutal at times.

This video starts easy and there are options at almost every point to make it less difficult. But it was really challenging for me, both the stretches and strength work.

Change nothing. An awesome workout.

This was a great practice--all of my favorite stretching yoga and some great core work. I will definitely come back to this one!

Anita, I love your Yoga/Pilates fusions and all your workouts. Please keep posting them here. You have a very soothing voice and your music choices are spot on. The style of your workouts aren't hard on the body, but benefits are definitely gained. I especially know the next day when I feel those hard to reach muscles.

I really love your style Anita, your sequencing and sweet personality make you one of my top favorite teachers on this website. I'll continue looking for new videos from you! xo

Beginning the day in the best way.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class! Anita's voice is so calming and steady. By listening to her I was able to remain focused during each move. Thank you!

I enjoyed this video. I would love a little more guidance with breathing before the postures. Also, it seems that there is inconsistency in left and right side at 11:15 before the quad stretch there should be a side stretch. I suspected something was missing from the one side but it took me a few times doing this video to find it.

Wonderful! Just right!

Very soothing voice. Love this video's mix of stretch and strength work

Really challenging in areas and i look forward to mastering the moves. Core work was fun in that i have never seen those moves before but it was challenging so i knew i was working something.

Really enjoyed this. A nice mix of work and relaxation and stretching. Thank you.

RosesZen, posted on January 20, 2013

Core and abs work. Some rotations. No sun salutations.

jaycubj, posted on January 8, 2013

I enjoyed the juicy stretches in this video- really nice! If I could add anything to it I would only suggest more guidance on breathing- when to inhale and exhale in each different movement. I feel I could get more from each stretch if I were aware of how to breathe in time with it. I imagine if I do this video more I will get better in touch with that as well. Thank you!

Exactly what I was looking for. Been doing Pilates for years but am happy to see that its virtues are not corrupted here by fitness-freak style exercises. Pilates adds a mindful fitness component to yoga. North Americans demand this kind of results-oriented exercise, but Ms. Seiz's style strikes an amazing balance by not giving into the more extremist takes on it. Fusing the two disciplines makes for an optimal workout. Thanks very much for this and your other videos!!

@chmariediz212, I saw a Level 3 yoga pilates fusion on a free site, it had yoga poses including side plank, wild thing, Marichi's posture and all that Stott style breathing ... it IS possible ... both propless and equipmentless, for an advanced yogi to do a fusion. Not speaking personally, of course--this same teacher's Level 2 had overchallenged me ... may revisit that some time soon since I've had several live pilates mat classes ...

Either you do yoga or Pilates ... Advanced in yoga it looks like nothing but slow stretching...

I love this instructor! I love this sequence!

bwalmsley, posted on November 13, 2012

This video was good and i am learning more on how to workand use the corebetter. (still finding it hard but getting there) I did find that the voice overlay was a bit slower than the movements so i felt i was trying to alway catchup with her not using my breating proberly when doing this.
I have saved this to my favorites as I like all the movements.

Outstanding!

kturn283, posted on September 27, 2012

Oh man this is a wonderfully challenging workout. Each sequence is long enough for you to doubt your drive and body but short enough for you to stick it through to feel awesome that you didn't give up. Thank you Anita.

The gentle warm-up leading into pleasantly challenging core work is a great way to clear out morning crunchiness and get your day rolling.

mrenkow, posted on August 2, 2012

Loved this fast, challenging workout! Thank you, Anita!

shweta41080, posted on July 16, 2012

Love the combination of strength and stretching. Thank you Anita!

ritamichele, posted on June 19, 2012

These were some new poses for me, loved finding new ways to work my core, legs and arms. Thanks! Will definitely do again.

KerriCares, posted on June 9, 2012

This class was really great! I love the combination! Please post more like this.

Too fast between postures for my liking.

msbrown, posted on May 17, 2012

Core exercises were surprisingly & pleasantly challenging, great class!

cmartinez1584, posted on May 12, 2012

I already commented but every time I do this it makes me feel soooo good. Highly recommended!

Lovely Yoga and Pilates Fusion class by Anita Seiz! Great video for a quick core workout.

cmartinez1584, posted on May 2, 2012

This is an awesome flow! I love it. More videos like this pleeeease :)

Barbinha, posted on April 30, 2012

Amazing sequence! Thank you, Anita!

kimberley8, posted on April 23, 2012

absolutely love your videos. love the flow and natural movements of the body. the only constructive feedback would be to stay in the movements a bit longer as being dyslexic it takes me awhile to get into the position with my right and lefts, and then i find that it is time to move to the next one... your voice and cueing is great, just a bit longer in each move to enjoy the juiciness would be great... thanks for some very inspiring ways to move and to fuse yoga and pilates.

Ozge84, posted on April 18, 2012

It is good for strengthening the core muscles and opening the hips :) Thanks

charms, posted on April 12, 2012
