Derived from yoga, Pilates, ballet and Lotte Berk, this is a challenging series of truly innovative exercises. Each segment targets one muscle group with a variety of complimentary movements (and always ends with a soothing stretch). The exercises are different. Some are “intensified” versions of familiar classics (e.g. plié squats done on your toes with your hips dropping to your ankles). Others demand lots of strength and flexibility (e.g. “straight leg pretzel”). Some even require a wall for support or to engage your core in unique ways. Excellent cuing by Fred DeVito and Elisabeth Halfpapp. Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2010.
