Dance instructor Sue West combines Pilates and dance strengthening with classical and yoga stretches to create a unique workout designed to balance strength and flexibility in this instructional exercise release that aims to make the body stronger, longer, and more supple. No longer is getting in shape confined to the monotony of a few aerobic poses and some jumping jacks. New forms of exercises seem to pop up every week, combining centuries-old forms of fitness with new innovations. Sue West, a veteran dance teacher, fitness instructor, and choreographer, has designed an exciting hybrid workout using elements of dance, Pilates, and yoga. Guaranteed to result in a body that is strong, toned, and flexible, her SANTA FE STRETCH routine is both invigorating and meditative. And when the sweat starts to get to you, you can distract yourself by gazing at the lovely Santa Fe, New Mexico scenery where the class was filmed.
What is it?
A 45-minute stretching routine based on Yoga, Pilates and dance, meant to enhance flexibility and strength.
What to expect:
This is not your usual exercise DVD. That's clear from the beginning shots in and around the arty desert town of Santa Fe, New Mexico. While the majestic scenery and quaint Southwestern architecture may make you think you're watching a travelogue, instructor Sue West shows up to remind you that you'll be working out while viewing these beautiful backdrops. And this series of moves is as unique as its locale. West has combined Yoga, Pilates and dance moves and come up with something that's different from any other flexibility and stretching workout out there. Her approach is gentle, but that does not mean these exercises are all that easy — you already need to have some flexibility to execute many of these moves. And the second segment, set inside a mission-style building, will challenge your abdominal muscles. This is a pleasant and relaxing workout, not as strenuous as many Yoga routines and more serene than Pilates. It's a nice break in between resistance training days. And if you like the desert and Southwestern architecture, you'll enjoy the eye candy.
Who is it for?
Advanced beginning to intermediate fitness enthusiasts. It helps to have a certain amount of flexibility already to do this workout. You will need a mat.
