The instructor, Elise, was kind enough to answer some questions from Amazon.com about the Element line of DVDs.
Elise: A dancers silhouette is the ideal physique for a woman today. It provides strength through lean, elegant, streamlined muscles. The strengthening of the dance conditioning movements will help melt away fat while creating lean musculature that is still feminine and graceful. The stretching element of dance creates length, not only in the muscles, but in the spine as well. Training with ballet conditioning will give a woman a strong, tall slender body.
How did you manage to create a ballet conditioning program that doesnt use a barre or any other equipment?
Elise: I created a workout that uses the strength of the core to create balance and stability in the body. The sequences on this dvd are both accessible and challenging for anyone! Many ballet conditioning exercises actually dont use the barre as a weight-bearing toolits only for balance. In this DVD a beginner can use a chair to aid in balance, as they build core strength. A more advanced practitioner can do much of the series without the aid of a chair, simply by bracing the body with the strength of the abdominals, and a lifted, elongated spine.
Who is this workout good for?
Elise: This workout is amazing for women and men of all shapes and sizes! Ballet Conditioning uses ones own body weight as resistance, so it is safe to do every day, for women AND men from the strongest athlete, to the ultimate newcomer to fitness. It works to build strong, lean muscle, raise the heart-rate, and speed up metabolism. Dance also helps create rhythm, grace, and balance while building a supple flexible spine. .
What do you think consumers will find different about Element DVDs from other workout programs?
Elise: I know that consumers will enjoy the pure elegance of these DVDs. This is what truly sets the element series apart from other brands of DVDs. The Element DVDs encourage a solid mind/body connection, which encourages practitioners to explore their physical edge, while being truly mentally & emotionally present in the moment. These programs are fluid and graceful in their movement, and provide a HUGE physical fitness element in a nurturing and encouraging environment. .
Tell us about the connection with this DVD and the efforts to reduce global warming.
Elise: Element DVDs support the harmony of mind and body, which encourages a social and global awareness. This harmony encourages us to do what we can to make a difference in the world. For every four Element DVDs sold, a tree will be planted in a national forest. Consumers are therefore doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint, and the dangerous effects of global warming. If we work together, we can spread health and happiness one deep breath at a time.
