A very interesting,unique tape,combining
isometric toning with stretching for a 30-min. routine
that focuses the mind and body together. All you need is
a pair of washcloths (for working on a hard floor) or a
pair of plastic bags (for work on carpet).
Beginning with some gentle stretches,the tape
proceeds through a series of slow,controlled sliding
moves targeting specific areas of the body (lunges for
lower body,seated/kneeling positions supported by the
arms for chest/torso,plus a gentle ab crunch variation).
The challenge is in the slow tempo-you're forced to
really focus on what you're doing and to exert control
over every move. The effect is similar to tai ch'uan.
Straightforward camera angles make it easy to check
your form,and her direction is calming,clear,and
encouraging. Especially good for beginners or anyone
recuperating from injury,etc,this tape is great for
anyone to unwind, go slow, and develop physical/mental
control and balance.
