In this updated edition, the original 2-DVD set has been compressed into a single disc. Newly remastered and enhanced for improved video and audio quality, the disc contains nearly four hours of footage edited from a one-day workshop conducted by Jillian Hessel. Throughout the workshop, Jillian conveys the teaching strengths of her mentors, Kathy Grant and Carola Trier — two of Joseph Pilates' most revered students.

The copiously illustrated Teachers' Manual, in a redesigned format, contains concise descriptions of the exercises, including equipment setup, movement sequences, muscular initiation, breathing, and repetitions. Since each exercise on the video is introduced by a drawing and title, it is easily located in the Manual, linking the live demonstration with detailed written instructions.

Learning From Two Masters provides an authentic look into the history of Pilates. The teachings and personalities of two powerful women are brought to light, all filtered through Jillian's two decades of teaching experience. This is a must-have for serious students of Pilates!

"Infusion of knowledge enriches my teaching..."
For $50, Learning from Two Masters delivers a great workshop from an incredibly experienced instructor, along with a 52-page teacher's manual, with illustrations and a concise overview of each exercise. Plus, you can review at your own pace.

"Learning from Three Masters"
The best part of the Manual is that Ms. Hessel herself writes quite well, explaining the limits of capturing the life works of two direct Pilates descendents in a few hours. For fifty dollars, less than the cost of a private lesson, you get two products filled with new insights and information. Now, after over teaching twenty years herself, this DVD could be retitled "Learning from Three Masters."
