Pilates 2002 ???

I am a 58 years old man. I have the 2002 DVD simply named "Pilates". It was produced in 2002. I don't have the instructions that were designed for it.

Is the method OK for a man on my age ? What do the 5 sections refer to: one section for the first day, the second the next day, etc. ? How should one go from one to another ?

Thank you for answering my questions.

Without knowing what Pilates DVD your looking at or who the instructor is it's hard to say what each section is for. I attempted to look up a DVD just called Pilates from 2002 and I was unable to find anything. However you can do Pilates daily as long as your body feels up to it. Of course you always want to consult with a physician before starting any new physical regimen. Typically with DVD's that are segmented you can do one each day or a couple one day and then skip a day and do two more. They are normally designed to be interchangeable and able to be done in any order unless other wise indicated. Typically for Pilates to be effective you want to practice it at least 3 times a week but you can do as much more as you can handle.
