Product Description

Creator of the bestselling Bollywood Dance Workout turns up the heat!

Spice up your workout and boogie to the bhangra beat. Inspired by the sassy, sexy moves seen in hit Indian films, this isn’t the same old boring exercise routine. It's playful, seductive, and leaves you feeling high on life. Think of it as yoga with a triple-espresso twist or a double-chai high.

Fitness star and yogini Hemalayaa leads you through three 15-minute programs, from low to high impact. The first gets you in the groove, the second ups the cardio to optimum fat-burning range, and the third has you shimmying and bopping like a Bollywood film beauty. As you dance, you’ll lose weight; tone your core, hips, and thighs; and kiss stress good-bye. So liven up, let loose, and laugh like Hemalayaa does. It's that much fun!

I just did this workout and I must say that I sweated bullets. You can see a trailer at the acaciacatalog web site.
Setting: Theatre stage with teacher and two dancers, 1 woman and 1 guy. This time the backup dancers are quite good and look like they are enjoying the choreography.

workout: the dvd is divided into 3 workouts, each with its own warm-up, learn the steps, routine and cool down. The cool down is brief for segments 1 &2 in the event you want to do segment 3. The steps are easy and fun. BE WARNED, MANY OF THE STEPS ARE HIGH IMPACT. I have bad knees and I had to modify the criss cross jumping jacks, half jacks, hop turns and jumps. No modifications are shown on the video. However, I am aerobically out of shape and I still got my heart rate up doing low impact.

Music: This is bhangra hip hop music. The music is different for each segment. The teacher is in voice over and she is much louder than the music. There is a music only option and when you hear it without her talking, it is quite good and rhythmic.

Overall: A good workout that is edited and choreographed much better than her bollywood workout dvd. There is also a free dance special feature with the 3 dancers clowning around. Next time I do this, I will use the music only option as it is pretty easy to visually follow. the production quality is very good and the steps are in beat with the music. The camera loves Hemalayaa and she and her dancers are a joy to watch,

This might just be one of the most difficult workout DVDs I have ever done. A girl at work mentioned that she had tried it and loved it so I checked it out. She warned me that her legs were burning after she did the workout but that was the understatement of the century. About 3 minutes into this workout you already feel like your thighs are on fire. This should be called Bollywood Thighs of Steel! Don't let the fact that this is a dance video fool you. Its serious stuff! Definitely not for anyone for who has bad knees.

Part of our New Year's resolution, my honey and I, was getting back into moving and exercising more. Well, we really got into the swing with this one! The 15 minute segments make it easy to do, even when I'm feeling lazy.

It's easy to be happy with this DVD. We both worked up a sweat doing the shimmy and steppin' high with Hemalayaa. She's very upbeat and lighthearted, which kept us both engaged and relaxed. Laughing a lot makes it easier to not overfocus on our mistakes and lack of coordination.And right now, I'm pretty uncoordinated, believe me.

I had to modify some of the jumps and hops, but I've gotten used to that since I hurt my knee last year. It was great to have a man in the video and I noticed his moves were a little more subtle and solid, which gave my guy and I permission to not overdo it. But we still got a workout!

The best part? I put it on again a couple of days later and my partner got up from his desk (!) and came over on his own to hop around with me. No nagging required. Yaaayyy!!!

Definitely recommended!

I LOVED Hemalayaa's workouts on my On Demand Fitness channel, so I bought this video. Even though other people warned me about the poor choreography, the strange timing and the terrible hopping in place--which, the way she does it, is very very bad for your tendons and knees--I thought they were just overcritical and negative.
But they were not being overcritical.
I have been dancing my whole life for joy and exercise and I have never had any issues with my knees or ankles. This video gave me issues immediately. When I showed the moves to my doctor, she freaked out.
The entire middle section consists of jumping and hopping around in place.

Please be careful. Though I have truly valued her very loving and terrifically fun other workouts--I warn you not to buy this one!

This is a fun video, but it moves very fast and doesn't give you enough time to learn some of the moves. I also had a problem with the pacing -- in the middle of an intense, high-impact cardio workout you suddenly stop and do yoga, then you suddenly start dancing again. I would prefer the workout more thoughfully designed, building up to the more difficult stuff, and having the yoga be a separate workout. There is a LOT of jumping involved, which is really bad for your knees. There should be alternate moves for people who prefer not to jump. Also, the instructions are good but could use a little more attention to detail -- for example, if you are bending forward and can't see the screen, there should be a little more instruction so you know to get up and start moving again. Finally, the outfits are fun (though hardly workout clothes) but I was a little confused at all the zooming in on the butt... this is an exercise video, people, not a music video.

This is a nice set of cardio workouts. What's really great about this DVD is you get the genuine feel for Bollywood with playful and fun moves. Hemalayaa has included more of them in this than in some of her other DVDs. I'd rate this as the best of all the DVDs of hers I've purchased because you get more real Bollywood flavor.

There are three workouts that include a lot of high-impact moves. Although Hemalayaa does occasionally remind you to stay with lower-impact if you aren't comfortable, there is no demonstration of modified moves, so you'll have to figure them out yourself unless you can stick with the high-impact version. But Bollywood is bouncy and high-impact, so I guess it's worth it to see the real thing.

Besides three workouts, you get an extra Bollywood dance demonstration that's fun and cute. Hemalayaa is wearing the blue outfit she wears on the cover and the two other performers are wearing Indian garb. It's really the best part of the DVD. You get to see just how playful Bollywood dance really is.

What I really like about the Bollywood films I've seen is they portray more traditional Indian values. The main characters usually never kiss until they are married and the dance numbers are much more playful than the suggestive ones Hollywood puts out. Romance is a whole lot more fun when it's portrayed like that... traditional love and marriage. The first Bollywood movie I saw was Bride and Prejudice (a charming remake of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice). This DVD reminded me of that.

I really wish Hemalayaa would include dance numbers like this in all of her DVDs. This one was totally cute! I must have watched it at least eight times.
