My latest acquisition is Bollywood Party Workout.
The DVD has a five minute warm-up, two twenty-minute dance workouts (‘wedding party’ and ‘house party), and a five-minute cool down. Bonus features include clips from other Acacia workout DVDs that can stand alone as mini-workouts. No equipment is necessary. The instructor leads the class barefoot.
The workout definitely feels like a party. There’s upbeat music, a colorful stage setting, and Hemalayaa’s flashy gold pants. And then there’s the super fun dance moves. Try not having fun with moves like ‘Indian Barbie,’ ‘booty magic,’ and ‘spark.’
Hemalayaa’s cuing is excellent, and the dance moves are easy to follow. She is consistently motivating, linking the moves to motivational phrases.
During the ‘spark’ movement, she quips:
“Get some fire in your life!”
And while stretching during the cool down, she says:
“Cultivate and fill up that well that is in your heart full of all sorts of goodies: love, and peace, and harmony, and all those things you desire. Now smother yourself with them.”
Another reason to work out at home? You too can wear your liquid gold leggings without feeling a little ridiculous.
