DVD Review: Bollywood Burn

If you loved The Bollywood Dance Workout DVD, here's another one from Indian dance diva Hemalayaa with a pop-culture bend to it titled Bollywood Burn ($15). This video has three different dance segments, so you can do all three at one time (42 minutes total), or just choose one or two dances if you're pressed for time.

I've got to say that when the DVD started, I felt a little silly doing the moves. Also, Hemalayaa kept laughing uncontrollably, which was a little weird, but I must say that this workout was intense. I swear that my thighs were burning the entire time from the squat pulsing, and my heart was pumping from all the hopping and knee lifts. I liked that she alternated between a few minutes of intense dancing and a couple minutes of stretching. This workout seemed like new-age aerobics, and since I have loved aerobics since the '90s, I really enjoyed this workout. Once I got into the Bollywood groove, I found that this DVD was a really fun way to tone my entire body, especially my shoulders, thighs, and bum. I bet this would be really amazing to do in a class with a live band. Well for now I'll stick to this DVD. If you're looking for a new way to exercise, burn calories, and feel the burn in your quads and hips, I'd definitely order Bollywood Burn.

I love this DVD! I really like Hemalayaa's style. She's really laid back and doesn't take herself too seriously. This workout makes me sweat and it's fun too!

Guess I'm a slow learner, because I find those DVDs too hard to follow along with. I need special instruction on performing the moves correctly. My last failed attempt was the Tai Bo(?) video.
