This DVD focuses on shaping the backside--what Hema fetchingly calls "the boo-TAY." But while squats, lunges, and back-kicks make an appearance, they are accompanied by unusual arm and shoulder movements ("Paint the wall with joy now paint yourself with the same joy!") and sweet Indian music that is uplifting while never distracting. The workout, about 45 minutes, plus some short extras that demonstrate other types of Indian dance, is suitable for all fitness levels. Hema and her two assistants work out barefoot, which adds to the sensuality, but if you have arch or knee problems, keep your shoes on; you'll still have a great time. Another great feature of the disc is that Hema's instructions are all done in voiceover, which makes watching her dancing even transportive, since she's not breathlessly giving directions while being all sinewy. And there are some real challenges in this workout, despite their cute names. Be on the lookout for The Elk, so called because its boo-TAY-twitching movement mimics the mating dance of the elk. No wonder Ellen DeGeneres became a huge fan when Hema appeared on her talk show ("Pour the waterfall! Love!"). In no time, your booty and your spirits will be lifted. --A.T. Hurley
