The Dailey Method® is a system of strengthening and stretching all the major muscle groups in the body. It combines ballet barre work, core conditioning, stretching, and orthopedic exercises. The controlled movements are very focused, effective, and safe. Each exercise is followed by a series of stretches to develop more sculpted and supple muscles. The entire body is constantly working throughout class. Through this process, one's body, posture, and physical awareness will be transformed.
On this DVD, there is an Introduction from Jill Dailey and two workouts: Express Class and Full-Length Class. Both workouts target the entire body. "NO EXCUSES" was made because many of our clients wanted to keep up their practice while traveling and others, who could not visit one of our studios, wanted to experience The Dailey Method.
Very extensive instruction. It was helpful, but a bit too much for my taste, especially as I have been doing barre workouts for 2 years now (Physique 57, Core Fusion, Pure Barre,etc.). The bigger downside for me what that the hour-long workout was not that difficult, even with the modifications presented. Not much fun factor. Perhaps this would be a good choice for someone just getting into barre.
