Digitalized instructional DVD

Instructor:

Stacey Nemour

What I like about it:

I like that this course is short and sweet, but can be lenghtened easily by simply pausing the video and repeating sides and/or taking some extra time to go deeper into a stretch wherever needed.

It contains a few slightly different, yet highly effective exercises which greatly complement the other courses in the bundle(s).

I love that Stacey works with ankle weights for some of the leg work in this video, as well as a strap for stretching (note: I now use my Stacey Strap instead of the yoga strap), a wall, and a chair – demonstrating different ways to spot yourself for different stretches in the video.

What it does for me:

Doing this session, no matter whether I follow the pace of the course or go a bit slower with ‘switching/breathing breaks’, it always leaves me feeling open, energized and ready to practice – it’s quite deep work, but it still gives me a ‘boost’ afterwards.

Effects after a few sessions:

I’m noticing my leg kicks are getting a bit stronger, and my hamstrings open up more easily, which might very well be because of the ankle weight work (I’ve invested in a slightly heavier set :))

My favourite exercise(s):

I especially loved:

  • The ankle weights mini-workout for the quads, hamstrings and inner thighs – a fantastic conditioning set for active flexibility and controlled range of motion, which is useful for dancers as well as for martial artists!
