Artistry of Fitness [DVD]

The Artistry of Fitness: Align and Lengthen collects three exercise programs from expert fitness instructor Stephanie Herman: Fitness Through Conscious Movement, Esprit de Danse, and Stretch & Feel It! Herman, who was a prima ballerina for ten years, performing with world-class dancers, also trained with Joseph Pilates and is certified by the American College of Sports Medicine. Her workout methods utilize the science and philosophy of physical expression and rehabilitation, and offer therapeutic benefits as well as toning and strengthening -- all the while integrating the spirit and grace of dance into the exercise routine. Herman achieves this balance by combining dance with Pilates, movement therapy, and yoga. The three programs on this DVD offer a workout for every mood -- whether you want to calm and center your mind while connecting to your body, strengthen your body and lift your spirits, or relax and revitalize while learning new ways to stretch.
