The Goddess Workout: Cardio Burlesque is pure escapism with a slow and steady burn of calories. According to the instructor Dolphina, burlesque is bellydance’s naughty cousin—an apt description since you’ll feel the slightest bit naughty yourself while doing this in your living room.
Dolphina walks you through each move, inserting some interesting trivia while you bump along. This is a definite stomach workout, while the leg and arm work is so well integrated you don’t realize the muscles you’ve worked until well after you’ve completed the routine.
The Routine and Performance segment at the end pull it all together for a rousing workout that can double as a private show.
Highlights: Afterwards, you’ll move with a sensual confidence you never felt before. Plus, with 12 chapters, there’s a variety of moves to keep you interested.
