"I tried Yoga Booty Ballet Latin & Easy DVDs & felt the toning section was too easy & the dancing had too silly moves. I love Teigh McDonough from her Yoga Fusion Abs & Power videos that incorporated dance & Qi Gong with pilates & yoga. She has great body awareness & knows what stretches, poses, moves feel great in what order to keep you inspired to keep opening up your body. I always feel energized more when I'm done with her videos.
They cute YOUR left & Right. Teigh & Gillian alone on simple stage w/their positive, upbeat personalities & seem to get along great. The stage is simple & the music is Middle Eastern w/a great deep beat to keep you grounded & calm unlike Kenny G type music.
The Goddess Booty went by very fast, it felt like I was only exercising for 8 min, but it is 22 min. There is no menu. They start with a yoga mudra & breathing real quick, then kundalini yoga seated torso circles & & torso back/forth with breath. Then quick to side laying & leg lifts & circles & frog (leg/hip lifts when laying on stomach) on each side with child's pose 2 second rests in between. Then on knees & forearms is more leg lifts & rest with calf to chest stretch or modified version. Next callanetics /bar method / lotte berk method seated knee lifts (more challenging then those), knee to chest stretch & knee to each side back/forth for hip circulation. Next is more challenging version of callanetics standing tiny squats, hip tucks & standing leg lifts with more balance challenge. Next is yoga chair pose, seated spinal twist, threading the needle for hip stretch & ends with a visualization & mudra for abundance in life.
Goddess Yoga Core
Starts with kundalini yoga with arms behind head torso twists w/breath for 3 min, alternating between rolling like a ball & boat pose, lying down single leg lifts & then the straight leg to side w/o letting it go to the ground for strengthening spinal twist & both legs, lying holding straight legs at 45 angle, on elbow side plank, on elbow plank, on stomach pilates swimming, locust, plank w/leg lift & knee to nose w/breath of fire, bow pose, full side plank, full camel, fun torso rolling stretch, downward facing dog, standing fwd bend, diaphragmatic breathing (slight squat & full exhales & holding to massage organs, slight squat cat/cow stretch, standing full side bends, full squat balance w/good qi gong energy cultivation hands & ends w/mudra.
I felt very energized & positive after doing this & it made me want to exercise even more! Their positive words were helpful to make me want to do this again & again. I was able to even do my best camel with the best ease because of Teigh's words to "visualize a string coming up from your heart to the moon, oppositional energy, enjoy the space you are creating..."
I've only tried their Latin/Easy workouts & didn't like the dance portion as much & thought the toning workout was too easy. I think as well because there were other students who were not as in good strength or not as in a positive mood or aware of their bodies who probably hoping the workout would end immediately got to me. Gillian & Teigh alone like this I LOVE."

"I really like the workout. The two women in the DVD have a really good workout and explain everything very well, and I feel the results as I'm working out with this DVD. The personalities of the two women just seem a little strange, but it's not really fair to judge people in a workout video. Besides the personalities, I love the DVD and the workout! It was well worth the money!!!"
Silly, but effective!

"Yoga Booty Ballet is sometimes kind of cheesy, but the moves are effective. The women may grate some people's nerves because of their mantras or because their personalites are a little out there. There is one moment where one of the ladies gives the other stink eye and their deep breathing close ups are... interesting. Once you get past all that the moves are doable and worthwhile. I used this DVD as a followup to a more strenous one. The time flies through this one because everything is pretty succinct."
