Stretch and Joint Mobility Therapy, with Annette Fletcher: Body flexibility training to reduce joint stiffness, Stretching instruction
Manufacturer: World Dance New York
The Stretch and Joint Mobility Therapy program covers 3 areas of stretch and flexibility practice: Joint mobility exercises, Dynamic stretch and Traditional stretch. Joint Mobility Therapy is the pursuit of joint health through movement. Age and a sedentary lifestyle cause our joints to grow stiffer. Our range of motion shrinks, and as a result of our inactivity our muscles lose strength and tone. This process may be slow and imperceptible, but unless we take preventative measures, joint and muscle deterioration will make mobility more and more difficult. That is why it is important to know and use the correct therapeutic stretches and joint mobility exercises that can stave off and even reverse joint stiffness and chronic muscle weakness. What causes joint stiffness? Our bones are linked together with connective tissue called joint cartilage. Cartilage does not contain blood vessels. It stays healthy and supple when lubricated with synovial fluid, and the only thing that can increase synovial fluid is the pumping action generated by movement. As we become older and less mobile our joint cartilage starts to degrade. Annette Fletcher's Joint Mobility program offers gentle therapeutic stretches that will reduce joint stiffness and ease you into the habit of fitness movement - even if you are currently completely inactive. With regular use these refreshing and relaxing exercises will maintain the health of your joints. Even if you are a physically fit and active person, chan...

The Perfect Pregnancy Workout vol. 3:The Ancient Art of Belly Dance for Labor
Manufacturer: Far Star Productions
It's a little-known fact that belly dance began as a birth ritual. The rhythmic movements and circles help mothers caress their little ones down the birth canal. Long before epidurals, women in labor belly danced their babies into the world. Elisa Llamido, a dancer, martial artist and acrobat, brings this ancient technique to modern day in this stunningly-photographed workout. Primal Taiko drums power the thirty-five minute sequence, which isolates different areas of the body and highlights movements to use in labor. Exercisers can choose between the slower-paced beginner version and the challenging advanced version. Learn to: target the muscles needed for birth, improve your body image, visualize your labor, relieve lower back pain, connect with your baby, and reduce time and pain in labor by practicing muscle isolations to help your baby descend. The workout includes kegel exercises, a visualization segment for the third trimester, instructional section and special featurettes. Does it work? Elisa belly danced through her labor without drugs or pain in four short, beautiful hours from her first contraction to delivery.
