Your reply will be screened. The workout is 52 minutes long, so it's fairly short for me as I'm used to minute ballet classes. There was a strange part involving having the working leg in attitude and then bringing the thigh in, then up and down. In this section there was also some hip openers for the splits.

I also figure that I still get exhausted to easily that it'll mean I'll be in the safety of my own home, so if I suddenly find a need to nap it happensI can do bsllet, and it also means I won't be worried about driving home when my body is ready to flop. Here's the Amazon page if you're interested.
My legs were worn out by the end. And hey, who can say no to a beautiful, graceful ballerina in a gorgeous landscape? After my legs loosened up, I really got into it. Finally there was some abdominal work in the form of floor barre. They were just standard, small jumps from first baklet second, and then changements in fifth.

It's very clear that Elise is a yoga instructor as the entire workout has a yoga feel to it, elmeent the music, her style of speaking and the length of time the positions are held. Ultimately, I find this DVD to vonditioning good for a beginner or someone starting out again as it's very simple and easy, though it does assume you already hold some strength and some minor flexibility. The first part was grand battements, simple enough.
I wasn't quite sure what I was meant to be doing, and it's hard to describe. Even the jumps were done slowly, which was admittedly a little frustrating for me as I'm used to very quick jumps where your legs just keep going and going!

Log in No account? During November and December I've gone to a couple of classes, but only once a week and I haven't been able to go to anything regularly.
Conditionijg DVD also suggests it'll help build up flexibility, which is something I also want to do. You won't learn anything new from it, but I hold the idea if you're doing something new, it's best to have a teacher with you.
This whole part was done at the barre the chairand all were executed from first position.

I don't want to completely fall on my face because my strength is gone. In this section there was also some hip openers for the splits. The workout itself utilises some very basic moves, mostly all executed from first and second position.
I decided to go for this DVD because I wanted something ballet-centric and something easy. It was good to actually start moving.
The instructor is Elise Gulan, who has apparently danced for the Virginia Ballet Company as a soloist for seven years. The workout is 52 minutes long, so it's fairly short for me as I'm used to minute ballet classes.
The next part was done without the barre. I bought a handful of Elemen yesterday. Then reverence and you're done! It definitely works the thighs and calves, and I just didn't have the energy to keep up with it. I've finally managed to regain some of my energy and have actually started to feel as though I could cope with ballet classes again. This workout is all in the legs, too.
Given the first thirty, forty was all stretching the calves, no bending, I wasn't ready to start jumping. The first half of this section was very easy, however the second half involved doing grand plies in releve. Developpes were also a big part of this section.
Cambres to the side, that sort of thing.
