Miley Cyrus took the Pilates studio by storm earlier this year, acquiring an enviable toned stomach and svelte figure after she shed 20lbs.
The 19-year-old star credits Mari Winsor Pilates for her new found abs, visiting the instructor several times a week to maintain her fit figure.
Now, Ms Windsor has released an at-home Pilates DVD for under $15, democratically giving critics and fans alike the chance to acquire the star’s toned physique.

The Pilates guru told FitSugar:
‘Her mother had done Winsor Pilates, and when Miley wanted to do
Pilates, her mom recommended me. Her results are due to her commitment,
hard work, and everyday workouts.
‘I believe what attracts all stars to
Pilates is that it’s safe, effective, and the results are very fast when
done correctly,’ she added.

Ms Winsdor’s new DVD, called Lower
Body Pilates, concentrates on what she calls the ‘rear view,’ with a
workout that encompasses her clients’ requests from the waist down: the
hips, the glutes, the butt, the inner and outer thighs.

She explains that with Pilates,
regardless of the exercise or routine you are doing, your abs are
engaged – even though you’re focusing on your hips, thighs, and glutes.
Ms Windsor added: ‘Miley is a fan of all Pilates exercises, in particular those that sculpt the abs.
‘In Pilates, every exercise that you do is focused on your abs, or as we call it in Pilates, your powerhouse. The 100, the double leg stretch, and the criss-cross are all crucial to sculpting your abs.’
Besides taking daily Pilates classes, the young star and finacee of Liam Hemsworth, proclaimed on Twitter that a gluten and lactose-free diet was the secret behind her smaller new frame.
She wrote in April: ‘Everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, physical and mental health is amazing. You won’t go back!’
Mari Winsor’s Lower Body Pilates DVD, $15, is available from Gaiam.
