***** Five Stars - I really enjoy this YBB set, containing 5 workouts. If you've had a little dance experience I think it helps to catch on to these workouts, but even if not, practice will help you keep up. I find the workouts very fun, pretty fast-paced. They may be frustrating if you don't give yourself a break... you can learn some fun dance moves to use elsewhere, too! The women on the videos have beautiful bodies worth aspiring to, they are strong and lean. Since this system contains 5 workouts, by buying this product I have had several weeks of workouts that I haven't gotten bored with. I like the integration of cardio-dance, strength ballet and yoga stretching. They all compliment eachother very well. You can break a great sweat on the advanced workout! --B. Hansen "Hardly a professional dancer"

***** Five Stars - This is the best workout video I've tried yet. The instructors are fun and sassy. The work-outs have 3 different forms of yoga, traditional yoga, kundalini, and hatha. There is a weight lifting segment, dance technique for arms, buns, thighs, and cardio dancing. You can work every part of your body in 1 video. I love doing the cardio section because it's unlike any cardio class I've done before. The music is exciting and the teachers are the best! --Alina Rambo "work-out junkie"

***** Five Stars - I saw this on a early morning commercial and i thought i was really interesting. However, i have never bought anything that i see on commercials for fear that it is a waste of money...WAS I FOREVER WRONG ABOUT YOGA BOOTY BALLET!! I bought the tapes and i have already lost inches and 5 pounds. I love the fact that it involves dancing and ballet. I am a pilates lover so i knew this is something i would like. It is a great workout and keeps you moving constantly. I love the fact there are 3 tapes and you can pick which one you want to choose. I also like that you can add your own moves and techniques with some of the dances. The tapes work on your buns, thighs, and hips..and that is where i really need it. I will say the only thing that i do not like on the tapes is when they start talking about different gods and spirits. The instructors do alot of meditating and i do not involve myself with this. I just press fast forward to get through those scenes. I have given it 5 Stars because it has gotten the job done for me. I would like to lose 10 more pounds and i know if i continue with this workout i will lose more!! IT IS WELL WORTH THE BUCKS!! --J. Malloy "ferret lover"

As a dedicated user of exercise videos since the mid-1980s, I've found that the newer ones are getting more & more effective. YBB is the best yet. The results are phenomenal -- a really pretty flattening of the abs, similar to Pilates but without the neck strain. My upper arms & thighs (always heavy) are thinning out too, after only 2 weeks.

A few warnings: the dance steps may be tricky for beginners. They move fast. Also, this is one workout that works the back as much as the abs. If you already have back problems, you should probably stay away from YBB. Finally, the instructors are "California goofy." If you can relax & enjoy that, fine. Their emphasis on the spiritual side of yoga might irritate some. I figure what the heck, it couldn't hurt.

I spent years convinced that the only way to change my shape was with weights. Unfortunately one of those changes is a certain bulkiness that I don't like. The Firm comes to mind: they're always saying weights won't give women big muscles, like men. Well, they do thicken you, and after more than 10 years of using The Firm, I backed away. I much prefer the look of a yoga/pilates/ballet body, and YBB incorporates them all. Other advantages: a stronger back (I can finally sit up straight in a cross-legged seat without bracing myself), better balance and an energy boost.

The concepts are good. The attempt at blending ballet, Yoga, and Dance is merged together is admirable.

The video portions of the techniques and poses could be of better quality. The shots of the drummer don't really help in the instruction and seem to be more for artistic affect. The backdrops are beautiful, but I've have a Yoga DVD where the room is just a studio with solid lighting, and simple furniture and it was beautiful as well, and the video quality better.

The instructors know what they are doing. This I expected.
They give clear direction at points that if you need to take your time, or slow down, or go at your own pace you were encouraged to do so, which I appreciated. People need to know this.

The packaging and leaflets mentioned nothing about needing weights, which I find is a very important oversight that people should know about. What other props or accessories do I need to follow along in the video.

The daily guide to using the 3 DVD set was good. Without that I would have been lost as to how to arrange the usage of the 3 DVDs.

I've done ballet, Yoga, and Dance so this was just the DVD I was looking for. Its good, I can get a workout with it. Just wish the video quality was consistent throughtout the entire range of scences.

This is the workout I use when I don't want to workout. Yes, it's cheesy. Yes, it's corny *However*, and this is the most important thing--it's fun! The cardiomoves are easy, the ballet really works my rear end, and the yoga gives me a good stretch. Everyone looks like they're having a great time and then I end up having a great time and getting in my workout at the same time. It's not for everyone, but I think it's a keeper for me.

I am a 17 year old, looking for a way to lose wight but make it fun. I hate going to the gym and other excerizing tapes like Billy Blanks Bootcamp are not fun either.For awhile I did billy blanks ,and was not happy with the results, because it seemed like all my muscle turned out really bulky and the other thing that really annoyed me was that Billy Blanks made if harder for me to want to work out with him because he would do 1 or 2 squats with you and then shout at you to do like 6 more sets of 8. It just got tiring really fast, and it was hard for me to wake up each day because it was such a dread to workout.

Then I saw the informercial for Yoga Booty Ballet. It looked like a lot of fun, and I had to try it.

I am happy to say that this is a faboulous workout system! It has really worked for me. My whole body is getting toned and shaped everyday it seems. I feel the burn each time I do the workouts and sweat up a storm ( which was a big concern of my parents becauset they were afriad I wasn't going to get enough of a workout). In this set you get 5 different dvds to workout to.

In the Guided Meditaion, it is pretty simple . Mainly Gillian and Teigh show the safe way on how to do squats and plies so you don't hurt a bad back or bad knees, they also show some meditions that they do in other films so you can familerize yourself with them. 10 minutes total.

Next in the seris is the Total Toning Basics. You start off by doing some medition,and then move into a warmup/dance workout. The Ballet section is a short section however it really works on toning the abs,arms(for you hold your arms out to balance your self ,and you hold them in many differnt postures)and it works really well on the outter thigh and booty.

I rented this from Netfl-- from their 3 disk set, (didn't include, of course, the guide book) which had:
Disk 1: Rehearsal/Meditation, Beginner & Advanced
disk 2: yoga booty hip hop abs
Disk 3: yoga booty ballet cabaret

I love Teigh McDonough from her Yoga Fusion Abs & Power VHS that incorporated dance & Qi Gong with pilates & yoga. She has great body awareness & knows what stretches, poses, moves feel great in what order to keep you inspired to keep opening up your body. I always feel very energized & positive after doing any of their DVDs & it makes me want to exercise even more! Their positive words of encouragement are empowering & were helpful to make me want to do this again & again. Gillian & Teigh have great body awareness and have great focused energy while still reminding you to always have fun & have the correct intentions as great as any great guru yogi master. (Teigh studied studied Kundalini yoga and meditation under Siri Sat Nam Singh for over 8 years & Anusara yoga with Desiree Rumbaugh and John Friend.) This is not fluff or woo-woo but a spiritual connection to your own body & nature w/o sarcasm or fear.

Disk 1: Beautiful perfect colors/nature backgrounds, high production value, great worldbeat, new age music w/great beats
Rehearsal & Guided Meditation:
Intro - 3 min - of telling you about what the system offers & what they focus on.
Teaching - 6 min - of them teaching you uji simple deep breathing, proper posture for toning section, how to do downward facing dog, proper posture for ballet plies & squats, recommend barefoot except toning sections, to be relaxed & enjoy the workouts, a mudra & positive mantra to end. Ravi plays drums several yards behind them.
