SMADJ - Take It and Drive (World Music.)

© 2006 Rasa Music

SMADJ long awaited CD is going to be released March 21st 2006. The CD has been available since 26 Apr 2004 in other parts of the world.

I am so waiting for this CD and the music that SMADJ is going to unlease on this CD.


1. Betty 2. He said 3. Vogue 4. Aurore 5. C'est comme si c'etait fait...6. Sel7. Drive 8. Fatwords9. Meeting with the Bushmen10. Bonus Track: Fatwords (Semtek’s Say Ahh Remix)11. Bonus Track: Fatwords (Al West Remix)

SMADJ's music is inspired by the sounds of a truly ambient sound Drive is the first single of the set.

March is the release time for this work SMADJ has been compared to Brian Eno!

Relax 2 - Sublime Music for Reading & Lounging!

© 2006 Rasa Music

Sometimes I want to unwind and just chill back and listen to mood music that just floats above me or surrounds me. Relax 2 is that CD. The CD has no really established artists on it which makes listening to it a joy to do so. Music to me is not about an artist its about sometimes the intention of the music.

If you get a chance check out the CD above ambient music does not get any better IMO!


1. Southern Romance by Olivier Pryslack 2. 800 by Nylon Moon 3. Pema's Theme by Cyril orin 4. Mystic Diversions by Classique Noninoni 5. Butterfly by Coco De Mer 6. Hallway Man by Suphala 7. Twisted Cupid by Slow Train Soul 8. Flight to Freedom by Deepak Chopra & Gina Gershon 9. Float by Ghostland 10. Four Noble Truths by Cyril Morin 11. Sunset on Lucia Rosa Bay by Mystic Diversions 12. Valentine to Tagore by Deepak Chopra & Adam Plack 13. A Lover's Madness by A Gift Love - Love Poems of Rumi 14. Serenity by Adam Plack & Deepak Chopra 15. 40* In The Shade by Nomad 16. Divya's Theme by Cyril Morin

This CD rebalances everything. I love the music on this CD and I hope that other Bodybalance/Flow people love it as well :)

Get inspired with the graceful music of Lotus!

Lotus were formed by Robert Crosbie in 1997.

They have had 3 CD so far they are in the same vein as Conjure One and also Delerium. If you are into their music then "Lotus" will be an awesome edition to your "Ambient" music selections.

Lotus first CD is entitled "Lotus" that was my introduction to their music that would have been around 1999. Since then they have recorded 2 CD's.

Track 9 Bodybalance/Flow 32 - Center of the Sun Conjure One!

©2003 Nettwerk America

I also adore this song and Conjure one.

I have been with Bodybalance/Flow since 1999 and I have to say that this is a epic track. Jackie has outdone herself with this one. It is one magic journey of inner discovery and exploring the sensuality of music and how the flow of music interacts with the poses Jackie has choreographed.

The track just drifts into a state of calmness you float into the music. Then you are taken on a mindscape of visual images and thoughts while you escape into the world of Conjure One's Center of the Sun. The visual landscape opens up more and you travel the path of the music surrenderingg to the different visual images from the poses Jackie has choreographed.

We're All Beautiful Joy Of Living feat. Nitza from "Release 21" and this track are wonderful tracks. For those who have done "Release 21" know the music of track 2. It would be interesting to see those two tracks presented in one class :)

Take the journey with track 9 of Bodybalance/Flow 32 and enjoy the mind and body journey as you surrender to this wonderful track :)

I am going to be talking about track 9 of Bodybalance/Flow for a very very long time :)

Enter the myspace of Conjure One: http://www.myspace.com/conjureone

Thanks Rhys for allowing me into your wonderful space :) and connecting to myspace at www.myspace.com

Track 8 Bodybalance/Flow 32!

What can one say this track is just the best ever. Longer poses, lifting the notch and extending further.

I just adore this track and the set of poses Jackie has choreographed.

The ending is just chilling, you just want to reach higher and extend your spirit to the sky :)

Just reach higher and embrace your new length :)

Track 7 Bodybalance/Flow 32!

Jackie has choreogrpahed a wonderfull set of poses and the music to this track blend so well with the music of this release.

It has been almost 7 days since the 1/4 and I am still playing this track over and over again.

It is one of the best track 7's ever.

Just enjoy the music and also enjoy the activation of the middle back in this track.

This release is going to become a classic release in the "30's Series of Bodybalance/Flow"


New Best 30's Series!

We now have 3 releases of the 30's series of Bodybalance/Flow/Healing.

Now I have a new favs well tracks I like :

01. (Track 1 Bodybalance/Flow 32.)
02. Release - Afro Celt Sound system (Bodybalance/Flow 31.)
03. Prayer for the Dying - Seal (Bodybalance/Flow 30.)
04. (Track 4 Bodybalance/Flow 32.)
05. (Track 5 Bodybalance/Flow 32.)
06. Crazy - Seal (Bodybalance/Flow 31.) & Round Here - George Michael (Bodybalance/Flow 30. )
07. (Track 7 Bodybalance/Flow 32.)
08. World on Fire - Sarah McLauchlan (Bodybalance/Flow 30) & (Track 8 Bodybalance/Flow 32.)
09. Run - Snow Patrol - Final Straw (Bodybalance/Flow 30.) & (Track 9 Bodybalance/Flow 32.)
10. A Mass For Peace - Benediction (Bodybalance/Flow 30.)

Bodybalance/Flow/Healing 32 is one outstanding release and track 7 from that release and track 10 from that release are outstanding :)

Bodybalance 32 WOW and did I say WOW!

Just came back today from the 1/4 workshop for this release and I am just overwhelmed with this release.

I e-mailed Jackie a-long time ago about a move we have not seen in Bodybalance for a long time and guess what it is back :) I am one very happy camper.

Track 2 is stunning and simply an awesome set of new poses that are just wonderfull to do.

Track 3 is the best track three I have ever done.

Track 4 is just wonderfull and the set of poses are crafted well together.

Track 5 Brings a pose back I remember doing a number of years ago and it is back :)

Track 6 New poses and the abs are going to love this track.

Track 7 The best back track ever. Now my favorite in the 30's series of Bodybalance/Flow.

Track 8 wonderfull set of poses and a new twist at the end :)

Track 9 is the longest track 9 I can remember and it is a wonderfull track to do. I just love the flow of the moves in this one and the circle is complete from track 2 to this one with Ying and Yang being totally aligned :)

Track 10 wonderfull music and new composer.

A few secrets and an wonderfull class all round.

I am going to be talking about Bodybalance/Flow 32 for a very long time :)

Enjoy your sun within :)

Missing the Down Dog and Firefly Pose Combination!

In Bodybalance/Flow Release 13 we did a combination Down Dog and Firefly combination.

Track No 8 in that release had so much going on in it.

We have not done it since.

It is such a powerful set of poses.

When you master the firefly you def know you have achieved something awesome in Bodybalance :)

That release would have been around 2000 :) 6 years later it should make a return to Bodybalance :)

Awesome work from Molly Fox as usual :) and wonderfully choreogrpahed as well :)

Filming Dates and Site News Buttons!

I have added a Filmings Button and a Site News Button.

The Filmings one is for current filming information at Les Mills World of Fitness.

Yoga based track 1's!

Before Bodybalance 10 we had Yoga based warmups I personally loved them and an old fav was:

1 BB 05 Lifted Lighthouse Family

then moved into:

2 BB 05 Silence Karma

I loved that Yoga Based Warmup it worked well with track 2 and that made that release flow really well.

I hope one day that Jackie would throw in a Yoga Based track 1 for old time sake and allow the newer people to the class experience it.

The last time we had a Yoga type entry was 1 BB 24 Porcelain Moby where Jackie did some Yoga before the track began that was so very special.

I hope that Jackie can do a release with that type of Yoga Intro which was simply fantastic :) it was used before the Moby track began :)

One can only hope :)

Enjoy your sun within :)

Animal Fingers in Bodybalance

Back a number of years ago the in word was "Animal Fingers" the last time I think we used that term was in Bodybalance 13 or so.

The term is wonderful to describe the fingers pressing into a Bear Claw Option in Sun Salutations or when you are in down dog going into plank.

It is the harder option but the rewards of using Animal Fingers makes the coming in and out of certain poses more atheletic IMO.

The last release that had a tribal feel was Bodybalance 12 where we had the term animal fingers used alot :)

1 BB 12 Porcelain
2 BB 12 Misere Mani Era
3 BB 12 Try Again Aaliyah
4 BB 12 Bad Man R Kelly
5 BB 12 Who's Gonna Stop The Rain Anastacia
6 BB 12 Music Madonna
7 BB 12 Rome Wasn't Built In A Day Morcheeba
8 BB 12 Ain't No Sunshine Ladysmith Black Mambazo feat. Des'ree
9 BB 12 Hold Back The Night Sinead O'Connor
10 BB 12 Comtemplation Janetta Petkus
11 BB 12 Tuning Janetta Petkus

Now thinking of some other older terms we used in Bodybalance back then and come back and post them here. :)

Enjoy your sun within :)

Diamond Arms in Bodybalance

On the logo for Bodybalance it shows a person doing Swan Pose and then initiating Diamond Arms above the head while in Swan Pose. I can only remember one release where we actually did Diamond Arms in Bodybalance.

© 2005 Les Mills International

© 2005 Les Mills International

If think that that should be an option (advanced) for anyone doing Swan Pose to come to Diamond Arms and then come to overhead prayer and then decend to Swan Pose :).

It takes alot of abdominal control and tons of hip activation as well as tons of balance and control coming to diamond arms.

Would love one day to see the return of Diamond Arms in Bodybalance :)

I can only hope :)

Enjoy your sun within :)
