Movie Reviews

An Exercise DVD that delivers the goods
Pearl | 12/11/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I exercise regularly at a gym near my home, but when I travel for business or pleasure, I'm not that comfortable in new facilities. So I thought I'd give this DVD a try. I can't say enough good things about it.
From the beginning info on osteoporosis and bone loading through the exercises and finally the stretch and further info on dietary recommendations at the end, this was just what I had been looking for. I found it easy to follow Mirabai's instructions because she demonstrated clearly how each exercise is done while talking about alignment and posture. After watching and doing it along with her a few times, I found I was able to have the DVD on my laptop and just listen to cues without looking at the screen. In fact, hearing her remind me to relax my shoulders and remember to breathe made me look around to see if one of the trainers from my gym was in the room with me!
Another thing I liked was Mirabai's options for making the workout harder or easier and variations for those with more or less flexibility while always reminding the viewer to be aware of how their body reacts to each exercise.
And oh that stretch at the end feels so good with its combination of slow, rhythmic movement and stretching poses accompanied by gentle music you are barely aware of. The effect is that of having spent a couple of hours at a spa where you have done something really good for your mind and body."
Precise exercises for bone loading

"When I learned that medical professionals and Prevention Magazine endorse "Skeletal Fitness," that was enough for me! I sent away for the DVD and am very glad I did.

I love Mirabai's straighforward, down-to-earth style and trust her professional expertise and credentials. [She's certified by the American College of Sports Medicine, and specializes in preventive and rehabilitative exercise.] After working out with the DVD, it's easy to see why she's receiving such accolades.

Mirabai has zeroed in on the precise exercises that put just the right amount of gentle stress on the bones to stimulate bone growth by using light weights, small movements, and resistance - stretching and isometric techniques. The exercises target all the areas most prone to fracture, such as the hips, ankles, and wrists. The exercises are easy to follow and simple to do. Definitely a program I can stick with and fit into my busy schedule.

I also appreciate her reminders about posture and correct breathing while exercising, and about not squeezing the weights too tightly. Her timing seemed perfect - she caught me every time! All in all, exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommended."
Highly recommended!

"I have recently discovered all three of Mirabai Holland's videos. They are all great! No crashing waves against the shore. No little jokes that are so-so the first time, but with repeated playing drive you up the wall. No personal comments. Just a no-nonsense professional approach to fitness. She knows her subject and conveys it beautifully! I understand there are more videos in the works. I look forward to them!"
Comprehensive workout - good stuff!

"This is a really well thought-out bone strengthening program. Mirabai is gentle and encouraging - and sees you through all the areas where you'd have potential fractures: wrists, hip, spine, etc. Having a video for this type of thing is far superior to an instructional book - it really takes the guesswork out of proper execution of the exercises. For myself, I feel like I hit a goldmine when I came across this DVD. Highly recommended for women young and old."
