A Dancer's Workout for Total Body Shaping, August 5, 2006
Johnson "The Rebecca Review"
Stephanie Herman blends her energetic jazz dancing with total
body shaping in this fascinating dancer's workout. She has been
teaching since 1988 and helps her students reach new levels of
flexibility, relaxation and balance.
Alignment & Jazz Workout - Cardiovascular Jazz Workout
Through a variety of flowing stretches she leads you through
unique choreography that plays teasingly with balance and asks
you to tune into your intuitive sense. Once you tune into your
body and enter this beautiful flow state, happiness rises in you
and you feel emotionally fulfilled, energized and graceful.
Stephanie will at times simply point the direction you will be
moving and if you keep your complete focus on her every move,
suddenly you are dancing, moving across the floor with form and
The purposeful flowing poses are very satisfying and if you have
always wanted to feel like a ballerina effortlessly gliding
across a stage, this is a beautiful experience that can at times
leave you lost in motion. As your body learns the new exercises,
you can let go and allow your creativity to flow through the
Body Flow Stretch - Toning and Stretching
The second section of stretches made me feel like a mermaid
exercising below the sea in a coral reef. Stephanie Herman
begins with side stretches (similar to the Pilates exercise:
Mermaid) and then moves into a relaxing seated warm up for the
hips. Ab circles loosen and tone, increasing flexibility all
while soothing the emotions. The feeling is of a flowing pool of
water swirling around your body. The mat work encourages
elongation and alignment.
An artistic side series becomes art in motion and as you
complete this DVD you may start to feel toned all over and
refreshed emotionally. This workout is one of the rewards of
keeping with your Pilates and Yoga exercises. The dance section
invigorates and the stretching tones and relaxes. This is a
complete workout with everything I love about exercising all in

Step 3: Diet Changes
Read as much as you can about healthy eating and make changes in your diet. I found
that eating more raw vegetables in salads boosted my
energy levels. Fruit is easy to eat with yogurt.
powders also helped when I started to increase
my exercising. As a reward for
eating well, I give myself treats,
like two small expensive dark Belgium
Now if I eat wrong, I feel terrible. It is great motivation to keep
eating good healthy foods. After a few weeks you will start to
notice a real decline in your energy level if you eat
the wrong foods. By monitoring your energy level
you can find out what works for you.
Some Changes that worked for me:
Switching from sugar to Stevia for tea and other beverages.
Green Tea and Rooibos Tea instead of Coffee
Water - sipping water all day long instead of
sweetened carbonated drinks
1 big salad every day with a delicious dressing and a
sprinkling of roasted pumpkin seeds.
1 bowl of fruit with yogurt every day topped with fiber
like the ALL ONE Totally Fiber - quite delicious actually
Homemade soups with lots of fresh vegetables
and protein of choice, like chicken. One of he most comforting
things I have been doing is making my own chicken stock.
Protein Powder Drinks with Soy
Limiting red meat to once or twice a week
Eggs a few times a week
Avoiding Fast Food places and sugary foods as much as possible.
Eating oat and soy based health bars in the morning
Buying healthier wheat breads or making them myself
By making these changes, I crave sugary foods less.
I have more energy and I feel more in control of my health.
Find what works for you, we all have very individual needs
and no one book is going to give you all the information you need.
Read, read and read your way to health.
Instead of dieting, make lifestyle changes! It could take a few
years to make even just a few changes. Patience will
give you the results you are looking for. It takes a while
to get your body used to all the changes.

For Depression: SAM-e or try Brain Vitality
1-800-546-4665 Sam-e is being called a happy pill. The name
is short for S-adenosyl-methionine. Your body makes its own supply
of SAM-e. It acts as an "on" switch for an array of
processes essential to sustaining human life. It helps new cells
grow and helps repair damaged ones. If you have problems waking up
early in the morning, take this product...you will literally
bounce out of bed :). I take this product daily, but just one or
two tablets. Many people say it helps them through the winter
months when there is not as much sun to keep them in a sunny mood.
You may want to consult your doctor before taking this product as
it can make some forms of depression worse, otherwise it can be a
great help to many and can even help to repair liver damage.
