Certified instructor description:
Graceful exercises that uniquely integrate isometrics into Pilates, ballet, yoga and traditional toning. It's a proven technique that maximizes the results from every movement. The isometric elements come in two varieties: short pulses and static squeezes (e.g. pulsed, short-range-of-motion squats or squeezing a ball between your knees to work your inner thighs). The transitions are fluid and well-structured; you'll just seamlessly proceed from one body part to the next. Tracy's cuing and form are exceptional; she's no-nonsense, but always friendly. Some moves work against a wall. Also has 41 minutes of bonus targeted toning. Very dramatic, film-quality production. Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells and a small inflatable ball.
