In celebration of the first day of spring Yoga Peach and Acacia Lifestyle are giving away Leah Sarago’s Ballet Body DVD collection! This is one the hottest ballet-inspired workouts ever. Acacia Lifestyle sent me these three DVDs a few weeks ago which includes Upper Body Workout, Lower Body Workout, and Core Workout. They are awesome and much more fun than most home workout videos!
Ballet Body by fitness expert Leah Sarago blends dance, yoga and pilates into a fun yet challenging workout that works for everyone. Upper Body Workout strengthens, sculpts, and defines your arms, back, and shoulders. Lower Body Workout lengthens your thighs, and shapes your legs and backside. The moves in this one are a lot of fun! You’ll definitely feel a great lower body burn the next morning! Core Workout focuses on total core strength to strengthen and tighten your core. I especially love this video as it’s helped me incorporate new fun and challenges exercises into the abdominal portion of power yoga and my core power class I teach to dance students.
Challenge your core with Ballet Body’s dynamic, integrative training approach to help flatten the mid-section while building core strength. While cardio and diet are the essential components to reducing abdominal fat, properly training the core is the key element to achieving a flatter belly. As the abdominal muscles weaken with age, pregnancy, and a lack of exercise, the belly begins to protrude outward as a result. Ballet Body core workout will train the abdominals to act as a “corset” to tighten and flatten your belly, while strengthening the core at the same time. Ballet Body® core workout emulates a non-surgical “tummy-tuck”. Leah has designed this workout to target your core from all angles. This complete core workout begins with standing abdominal exercises to challenge the core with balance, movement, and control. On the mat, work your core with variations in side planks and pilates-inspired abdominal exercises. Balance the ab-focused exercises with back strengthening exercises before flowing into deep stretching.
Strengthen, sculpt, and define your upper body with this creative, results-oriented workout DVD. Begin this workout with intensely challenging your upper body and core on the mat with muscle-elongating techniques and strengthening sequences to maximize muscle fiber recruitment. Perform Arabesque Push-Ups, Circular Planks, Down-ward Facing Dog Push-Ups, and Rock the Hips Tricep Dips to offer you innovative ways to activate your muscles. After 25 minutes of mat work, grab a pair of dumbbells for a 20 minute nonstop, weighted arm workout that will have your arms and shoulders burning in no time. Because the weighted arm exercises in this DVD explore a wide range of motion, light dumbbells are advised. With the shoulder being the most unstable joint in the body, it is important to properly train and strengthen this joint with care. These dance-inspired, muscle-lengthening movements will safely sculpt sleek and defined arms, while strengthening the shoulder girdle to help increase range of motion and prevent injury. Improve your muscle definition, posture, and strength with this incredible upper body focused workout suitable for all levels, complete with modifications and advanced options.
This nonstop, muscle shaping workout is performed at the barre with exercises including Circle the Hips in Plié, Rock the Hips in Parallel, Lunges in Relevé, Diagonal Fold-overs, and variations in tucks, lifts, and bridge sequences. Train your lower body the proper way with this ultimate, no fluff, muscle-burning workout to achieve the results you have always desired from a barre workout. This calorie-burning, body-weight resistance-only workout will lengthen the thighs while creating beautiful muscle definition so you can fit into your skinny jeans, or show off your Ballet Body® legs in shorts. Lengthen the thighs, lift the seat, and sculpt the back of the legs with Ballet Body® Signature Series Lower Body workout, which gracefully ends with a deep, 13-minute yoga and dance centered stretch. Sculpt your legs longer and leaner with this challenging workout DVD suitable for all levels, complete with modifications and advanced options.
