Certified instructor description:
Fluid and effective — a true "fusion" of yoga and body-sculpting. It's a clever blend of techniques that builds lean muscle in a way that opens and elongates your entire body. The moves never seem forced. Instead, the combinations are smooth and natural (e.g. a "warrior" pose with a bicep curl, a plank that morphs into a push-up). Each of the five segments has a different focus. They range from simple balance exercises to challenging "power flows," from total-body toning to ab-specific routines. Elisabeth Halfpapp and Fred DeVito are experienced pros — their progressions are well-sequenced; their cuing is super-clear. Requires 1 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2011.
