Great way to wake up or energize during the day when feeling sluggish..
This is set with just Teigh & Gillian alone which I like best. Their great energy & body awareness isn't distracted by other student's energy that is usually lower and don't want to exercise as much.
Intro 2 min - 1 min commercial & 1 min intro
First 10 min
Laying down 3 min - tensing/releasing one body part at a time from toes to head, then several body parts to help wake up your body.
Sitting - yoga pose lion (which helps increase energy & facial beauty) about 3x. Next is while still sitting on your heels, the spinal flexibility kundalini pose of flexing/extending your spine w/breath to increase energy for 2 min (def good cardio workout). For rest is a mudra hand positions & mantra to balance out your left & right side of your body, and a quick wake up of lightly patting all over your body to wake up the skin & refresh for 2 min. Last is a mudra of thinking of what you want while you hold up your hands (good arm strengthener.)
Standing 17 min
Cardio - 10 min - simple fast steps & rolling hands, steps with opening up of the hip, bring arms up, pulling elbows back, flicking wrist, walking & light cute kicks, etc. all very simple & easy moves to help get your circulation going throughout your body w/o being hard so you want to move even more. Ends in simple plies.
Ballet - 4 min - Side leg lifts with arms in 3 diff ballet positions on each side, done 2 times, stretching for 1 min their signature glut stretch of one foot resting on the other & dipping down, then plies & balancing on tip toes for 1 min.Read more ›
First, A.M. Latte. I had no idea what to expect. Well, it IS a great DVD to do if you just woke up and want to get in some exercise, but you're still stiff and sleepy. I really like this compared to the YBB "Lives" since it takes me forever to learn choreography. The choreography in this is simple to understand and do. It starts off in easy sitting pose with some kundalini inspired yoga (a kriya, a mudra and an intention) before getting you onto your feet. You do end with some yoga at the end.
As for Goddess Abs, get ready to work your core for 20 minutes! Wow...it's challenging. They do use a squishy ball. I used one from a pilates kit I have, and it was fine. They have some innovative moves I've not seen. It incorporates some kundalini inspired yoga.
The set for both DVDs looks like a yoga studio with hardwood floors, frosted windows, nice lights, plants, and fabrics. The set is nice. The music is good. The instructors are positive and life affirming, as in all the YBB DVDs.
I'm slowly collecting all the YBBs and am finding that each one has its own personality. It's a great program to use when you're low on energy, new to exercise, returning to exercise from an injury, or needing something light to keep you moving and grooving through winter with its cold days and dark nights. They are fun, positive and cheerful.
Goddess Abs is only 24 minutes but believe it or not your abs are gonna be sore the next day! (Again if you worked out the best you can)You will need a squishy ball for this workout. You start off with mudras that work your spin and core. Then you do a seris of crunches and pilates ab work. It will make your abs vibrate if done correctly. You end this tape with some abdominal stretchs and mudra. Like I said before you will be sore in the abs for a bit or possibly the next day which is good because it means you worked it ! I promise you that you should see results with this dvd if your not seeing results than your probably not working at a very hard intesity.
Yoga Booty Ballet is a great program, and really does give you the dancer's figure with contiually use. I have been doing AM Latte, YBB cardio/sclupt dvds and then end the night with pajamia time Dvds. Teigh and Gillian really inspire you to do your best. Read my other reviews on ybb if your instrested!
I liked the start of tensing and relaxing muscles and setting a tone for your practice, but the A.M. Latte section that includes more dance moves to get you going weren't too exciting and felt a little silly, as did the lion face you do in the warm-up with your eyes rolled back and your tongue out....just not my thing. I finished the A.M. latte, which took about 20 minutes and felt that it was a very mild workout-really just getting the muscles and joints moving, not a sweaty kind of thing. The Abs section I really liked. Lots of moves for your abs that seem to come from basic pilates moves. The one thing I did not realize was that they would use a ball for these exercises. They are easily modified without one, but I thought that somewhere it should have noted that a ball was optional and then maybe show the ball version and then the version without.
I borrowed this dvd, so I would say it isn't challenging enough for me to request it again, and it would not be one that I would purchase, but if you want a light workout and a good core program this may be for you if you are a beginner/intermediate exerciser.

There is something really off putting about this series. I love pilates and yoga videos, but couldn't get through 5 minutes of this due to the cheese factor; YUCK!Published on November 17, 2009 by Amazon Customer
