I’m totally not exaggerating when I say that Yoga Booty Ballet is the most fun video workout. EVER. I should like, write a review on Amazon.
And I’m something of an afficionado of video workouts. Starting with Cindy Crawford’s workout circa 1992. I’ve got bellydancing and pilates and kickboxing and cardio salsa…
But I tend to get bored, and over the past few years have started missing step aerobics. I used to go to a 7 am class in Studio City. I liked the choreography and I seem to remember being able to get through 45 minutes of cardio without dying. Last night, on the other hand, I found it difficult to get my feet high enough up off the ground to jump rope for two minutes.
Anyway, these Booty Ballet chicks are so hot and cute and fun and they really get nutty as they do their funky aerobic dances. I love the “hey” and “huh!” and “yeahs” they interject. (I don’t necessarily “hey” and “huh” while dancing in my living room, although I did receive the award for “best sounds” when I was on the drill team in the 9th grade.)
I’m sure you’re wondering where my dog is during all of this merriment, and I’ll tell you, sometimes I gotta put her in the crate, because she wants to nip at my feet while I dance. It’s the best when I whip out the yoga mat, though. The first time, she sat on the mat with me, and I adjusted the poses accordingly. The next few times, she tried to chew on my hair, and it was a little distracting.
Today, she managed to get through my whole workout without being banished to the box, but she did crawl on top of my back at one point. I just kept on going and she actually rolled from my upper back all the way down my body to my feet.
Can’t wait to try that when she’s full grown.
