Ballet Beautiful: Classic Workout

I have always loved ballet. But I never took ballet because I thought I would be able to do it because of my balance issues. Also, I used to get leg cramps. I have mild cerebral palsy which makes my legs get really tight and hurt.

I was looking for something different to do in my exercise routine. So I found Ballet Beautiful. The instructor is Mary Helen Bowers. She was a ballerina in New York. She got injured and developed a new way to get back in shape. She found out what she was doing was causing her to get stronger too. This new way became Ballet Beautiful. Later I found out that she is from Charlotte, NC (which is near where I live)!!

Mary Helen Bowers has several Ballet Beautiful workout dvds. The one I’m going to talk about today is her first one which is the Classic 60 Minute Workout dvd. There are 6 workouts on dvd. They are 10 minutes each. You will need no equipment for this dvd. But I do recommend either pilates, yoga mat for the floor exercises. The workouts are Bridge series, Abs, Inner Thigh, Outer Thigh, Arms, and Standing. The bridge series is a little tough for me because of my legs can get tight and hurt if I’m not careful.

This is mostly a stretching and toning dvd. There is no cardio in it.

Check out this Ballet Beautiful dvd on Amazon.com, or Walmart.com.

  1. Thanks – I will check these out – I love the idea of ten minute sections – it works so well for me – and sounds like a cool back story.
    I took a barre class last winter and it was all thighs – I actually think I almost Injured something in my thighs because I did the full hour and should have left – and you know all the regulars in the class had giant thunder thighs – and I think that class was too much leg – and this ballet workout series sounds balanced –
    Thanks for sharing-
    😉
