Try do get classes from an instructor certified in classical Pilates.
You can serverely injure yourself doing tapes or taking class from an instructor who has just done a weekend workshop.

Cerfied teachers have done more than 700 apprenticeship hours and are very knowledgeable about the human body and will work out a program for you.

I agree, you should find a studio, either a pilates studio (preferable) or any sort of dance/fitness studio that offers pilates and take classes with a certified instructor. Esepcially because of you injuries, it's really important that you're being supervised by someone who really knows what they're doing. They'll be able to show you everything you need to do, and not only how to do it, but all the little details to make it safer and more beneficial. If you can, I highly reccomend private sessions. That way you're working one-on-one with your instructor, and everything will be specifically tailored to your specific needs. However private instruction can be very pricey, so I don't know wether or not that's an option for you. If not, you should go join a class.

But before you begin with the exercises I showed you on PM, try with this first! It`s something called inprint, and you should warm up like this and hold the position threw all the exercises!
