Not everyone can have a body like a dancer, but many of the characteristics of dancers - well-balanced spine, dynamically stable mid-section, graceful posture and fluid movement - are within the grasp of us all with the help of this elegant and distinctive movement guide.
bodywise provides a totally new exercise program. It integrates the most effective exercises from several highly respected movement techniques used by dancers--Pilates, Alexander, classical ballet and physical therapy--to create a fresh approach to developing sound alignment, easy, smooth movement, flexibility and an improved sense of our bodies. It focuses on the key areas of posture, dynamic stability, flow and coordination to achieve a graceful body and a heightened mind/body connexion.
bodywise is designed to complement any existing fitness regimen, but it is also a productive workout in itself. All the exercises are demonstrated in step-by-step photos by dancers from the Australian Ballet. They are safe for a range of body types and fitness levels.
