Anything similar to Pop Pilates on Youtube?

I love Cassie's workouts but not her brand. I think I'm just too old for her or something (but I'm not that old). I'm looking for mostly lower body floorwork (but standing work OK too), not pure Pilates, lots of variety, 10-20 minute segments, and enough reps to really feel a burn.

My main focus is thinning thighs and I'm looking for workouts that work the entire leg, not just 15-20 minutes of focus on the outer thigh, for example.

So basically, workouts a lot like Cassie's without the Cassie?

Any ideas? Thanks!!

PS. Not Linda Wooldrige! I have a lot of her free and paid workouts and I've found that they're a case of too many reps on one area.

I couldn't help but chuckle at your post. I sometimes wonder what Cassie will be like when she is my age (60).

Have you tried Workout Hotel, PilatesBODY by Erin, or Jessica Valant Pilates?

I like those.

I get you with the over the top sometimes "branding". I remember 8 yrs or so back working out with the Tone It Up ladies. Until they started bringing rose petals to the workouts and selling something that didn't seem to be exactly focused on the workouts themselves. Now they are with BeachBody so hey, who cares what I think!? I just started not to enjoy it at all.

Pilates By Lisa is always good, but not free.

I've subscribed in the past but found a lot of same-ness to the lower body workouts. Plus, there were often too many reps - like in bridge, she would have you do so many bridges in various positions (leg down, leg up), by the time you finished the rep count was over 100.

As a better idea of the exercises and rep counts I like, Strong Strides is a good example (the floorwork sections). I also like Pure Sculpt (Trudie Styler) and Supermodel Buns and Thighs (Andrea Orbeck). I'm just tired of them, and also, Strong Strides is the only one that has enough front of the thigh work.

I should just write down my own sequences and put on some music, but I really enjoy working out to video.

Pilates by Lisa has 3 free floor leg workouts on the main page at the bottom: https://www.pilatesbylisa.com.au/ and one on you-tube that I like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wf3OaeL6iXE

I like Pilates Strong, but there are just a handful
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWl...IntoI2Q/videos

I thought I would like Boho Beautiful because of the scenery, but I don't click with it https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...iwzhbS0VUKaoDJ

Tracy Mallett is all over you-tube in 10-20 minute workouts if you like her.

I like Lazy Dancer for the evening, makes me smile
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbU...mBbZ9ZjKi9IRVQ

There's this you-tube channel called Ballet 24 that I bookmarked but I haven't tried it yet https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...e0pr5wcl58JFzD

I hear you with the TIU ladies. Definitely appealing to a different type of person. Plus, I have a couple of their DVD sets, and while there is one workout on each that's nice, the others miss the mark for me somehow.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will check them out.

Interesting. Cassie isn't Pilates, per de-she is definitely influenced by it but makes up her own moves. Most of what I know is pure Pilates. Hmm...

Workout Hotel is great! There's a variety of workouts, not too long, not too many reps, and Karen is always encouraging without a bunch of 'girlie chatter'!
