A Dancer's Workout for Total Body Shaping, August 5, 2006

  Reviewer: Rebecca 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 function.

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 movements.

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 one DVD!

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. 

Drinking protein 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 chocolates. 

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 for breakfast.

Buying healthier wheat breads or making them myself

By making these changes, I crave sugary foods less. I feel
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.
