Editorial Reviews

Hemalayaa Behl, better known as the fitness czarina and yogini Hema, has designed infectious, joyful dance workouts based on Indian and Bollywood choreography. In Bollywood Booty, the minutes fly by while Hema demonstrates hip tosses, light plies and squats, and her own signature sweeping moves--defying you not to grin the whole while. The notion that workouts can truly be fun, even gleeful, is what sets Hema's workouts apart. There's no grunting, no "ONLY EIGHT MORE, LET'S GO!" Instead, she breaks this workout into easily consumable pieces--four in all, ranging from 6 to 12 minutes each. Do one or all, along with the warm-up and cool-down. And in the meantime, get in touch with your inner goddess.

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Apartment-friendly February 21, 2009
By Molena
I had alot of fun with this one and came online to mention one thing that would be important to city-dwellers: this workout is tiny-apartment-friendly. You can do the entire workout in in a 5'x5' space and the only thing I couldn't do for respect for my neighbors was the hopping which was quite minimal anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some fun dance moves provide a light cardio workout August 25, 2009
This DVD is taught by Hemalayaa Behl, who appears along with two female background exercisers. It actually offers four short workout segments (each less than 15 minutes in length) in addition to the warm-up and cool-down, thus allowing users to customize the total length of their workout time. I have broken down each of these segments in greater detail below.

>WARM-UP (4 min). Here Hemalayaa introduces the "walk," a move that replaces the basic march seen in many other workouts. This is sort of a hip sway from side-to-side, and she uses it in place, moving forward, and moving back. She also performs mini-pliés and teaches the arm movements that are used throughout the workout. Although Hemalayaa gives the Indian names for these exercises, she explains them by asking users to envision everyday movements--e.g., lightbulb arms, painting the walls, etc.
>WORKOUT 1 (5.5 min). Hemalayaa calls this segment "Butt Monster Moves." She returns to the mini-plié introduced in the warm-up but adds many different variations, including toe taps, side reaches, butt kicks, leg lifts, etc.
>WORKOUT 2 (8 min). The first half of this workout includes a series of side-to-side lunge variations; Hemalayaa cues different arm movements (including "Indian vogue arms") and moves at a relatively quick pace. The second half includes some pliés as well as mini hops. Hemalayaa has you hop around so that you are facing away from the TV, and then you swivel just your head back over your shoulder while doing some fast hip flicks--this was a lot of fun!
>WORKOUT 3 (12 min). This workout begins with the swan, a figure eight move with the hips. Hemalayaa adds in a hip flick, going back and forth from side-to-side and constantly changing up the tempo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Workout! February 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had a lot of fun with this workout but yet I was getting a real burn. I like the fact that you can choose to do 1, 2 or all of the segments depending on your mood and time constraints. It is nice to know you can fit in a workout even if you only have 15 minutes. I also like the music only option + the bonus workout (slower yoga style). This was new and different and I think it will be easy to stick with. I liked it so much I bought all the other newer workouts as well. Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars I lost about 20 pounds thanks to Hemalayaa. November 17, 2009
I know that probably makes me sound like a spambot, but I'm not kidding. This DVD was an impulse buy at a store, and it was so much fun that I have bought a whole slew of dance workout DVDs here since. I had hit a plateau in my weight loss before I started doing this workout, and I lost 20 pounds--a conservative estimate--after I started to do this workout everyday. (I was rather heavy, so if you weigh 140 pounds, don't blame me if you don't lose as much.)

This is the best of the Acacia Bollywood series that I've tried, which are the Bollywood Dance Workout and Beautiful Belly. I haven't tried Bollywood Burn. The others are too hard on my knees, but there is little hopping around in this one. It still gets your heart rate going, and it is easy to do in a small space. I highly recommend it!

I also adore the bonus Odissi dance piece, and I wish I could get my hands on more of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Hemalayaa DVD yet June 6, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have to start by saying that Hemalayaa's workouts have changed my life. I hated every form of physical activity (except dancing) and had never found a video that I enjoyed and that provided results. I'm so glad I found Hemalayaa's DVDs because now I do one a day and I already feel beautiful and in much better shape. I even walk with more confidence, and I'm pretty sure my butt is rounder!

I already owned two Hemalayaa DVDs (Bollywood Burn and Beautiful Belly) and so my only decision was which one to try next. Bollywood Booty is, in my opinion, her best yet, for 1) how much fun the exercises are, 2) how sexy and varied the movements are, 3) how awesome the music is, and 4) the bonus dance Odissi in the special features.

Bollywood Booty is a lighter-weight workout than Beautiful Belly (which is the best for quick abdominal results). Hemalayaa is, as usual, joyful and the perfect instructor for those of us who don't like to take ourselves or our workout too seriously. You can't help but smile and feel great while doing a Hemalayaa video!

4.0 out of 5 stars Shake, Sculpt and Smile! February 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After trying The Bollywood Dance Workout With Hemalayaa and finding it fun albeit inadequate with regard to its ability to raise my heart rate and sustain it at an injury-free level, I was reluctant to devote 45 minutes of my time to "Bollywood Booty" and be disappointed. Happily, I wasn't.

Whether this DVD will reshape your backside as it promises, I do not doubt, but this depends upon the level of your fitness. Repeated movements of this sort cannot help but redefine your butt. However, Hemalayaa's derriere workout is limited to fast plies and side to side lunges that she incorporates to work within the pacing of a dance that she threads together in four separate segments that when played back to back equal the entire 45 minute program. Squats are mentioned on the back cover of the case, but other than a repetitive backwards motion where one's back is flat and the rear end is thrust out with exaggerated hip movements, I do not recall any of the classic move being incorporated. Hand and arm movements abound as well as full body undulations that Hemalayaa explains in exuberant voice-over as she stomps through the segments in happy abandon that one cannot fail to want to emulate. Caveat: Hemalayaa and her dance team do perform barefooted as I did. Simply don exercise footwear to prevent problems if your knees experience pain during jumping movements.

Bollywood Booty is not billed as a cardio workout, therefore I did not expect to have an elevated heart rate throughout the routine. With that thinking put aside, I was able to enjoy the DVD for what it was worth--as an do-able and entertaining routine that introduces the participant to Bhangra dance.
