    I love it and yes it can be done at home but proper form is key.
    But I do it to relax.

    She can do the mat work at home with a tape. It's a great ab and torso workout. The more advanced stuff, on the appartatus called "The Reformer"--well, you need to shell out for either the classes or the machine itself.

    The mat work is very good, but most people I know who are really into Pilates (here in SoCal) pay a lot of money for the reformer work classes--and even if you buy one, you really need someone to reach you all the ins and outs of the apparatus.

    Its fine to do..but it is not something you do instead of weight training and cardio...I have a lot of clients who only want to do pilates and that is their exercise program..YOU NEED more so dont rely on it to get results...as you would with a good strength training program.

    Twice a week - I guess its just like having a personal trainer..roughly same price as well. I think I can claim it off my health fund though.
    I think its worth it!
