Who remembers Fame?

Lee is from Fame the TV show. He played Bruno Martelli (1982-1984) opposite Debbie Allen and Lori Singer.

Oola would be awesome in Bodybalance as a track 6.

Australia vrs England World Cup Rugby and Track 6 of Bodybalance 33!

If you are watching the coverage and it comes to half time track 6 from Bodybalance 33 was playing then by Primal Scream!

How random is that?

Does anyone here practice Reiki?

If so please I am very interested in the practice!

Can you leave a comment here please.

Well there is tons of talk about track 6 in Bodybalance 33!

Primal Scream come to Bodybalance 33.

I thought "What The" when I heard that and thought that no way!

I now find myself eating my words and well I love Primal Scream. If you want to know the track see the Bodybalance 33 option on the site!

There are some tough core sections in that part of the release.

You need to watch Jackie and see how she does it on the DVD.

TIP: Slow down the DVD to 2X frames and see them do that part of the track in slow motion you then see then move, get into the pose and out of the pose. You need to watch them a few times.

This is one awesome release to the people in the USA/Canada. Kylie Gates is presenting this at the 1/4's this session.

Kylie Gates - Garry Hart and Dionne Ware are an awesome presentation team for any Bodybalance Masterclass. I had a ball being taught by them at our 1/4'ly.

I get so off the track sometimes!

The Beloved from X A Dream within a Dream Track 4!

I have been playing The Beloved for the better part of the afternoon. I loved Bodybalance 19 and teaching that release. Out of every Bodybalance the most enjoyment I get is teaching Bodybalance 19. I simply love it from top to bottom.

Deliver Me is the start up track by The Beloved.

I am listening to A Dream within a Dream (track 4) From The Beloved X

That track would be an awesome tai chi track in any Bodybalance it is 7:23 of the best ambient music that The Beloved could ever release.

Please give it a listen to :)

Trackview to Bodybalance 19:>>>>>>>
  1. Deliver Me The Beloved
  2. Inner Sanctum Delerium
  3. Hide U Kosheen
  4. Silence Delerium
  5. A Thousand Miles Vanessa Carlton
  6. My Culture Giant Leap
  7. Elevation U2
  8. Sweet Baby Macy Gray
  9. 17 Again Eurythmics
  10. Beethoven 132 William Orbit
  11. Lake People Levantis

A trully remarkable Bodybalance :)

The art of teaching extended knowledge Bodybalance 33!

I know what I am writing below may not make sense.
It is my way as a teacher and educator trying to explain my craft
Learning also from another teacher via her craft.
Teaching is a wonderful craft.

I guess that one thing that makes it worthwhile is the education part of the journey.

Teaching something from a beginning base to the end of the journey is an awesome journey. The reflection part is what occurs once the learning has occurred and the knowledge base has been established.

Teaching is the ability to be able to instill in a student the base of the knowledge. The retention and understanding of the knowledge is what they do with it. It is either instilled or rejected. It is the students duty to learn the material.

Study is more that the hr I spend with someone a week it is them being able to take away from the class the knowledge and being able to practice and learn the material presented. Taking ownership of the knowledge and becoming self directed.

The above is so not Bodybalance but an observation as a teacher and trying to come to terms with the fact that learning is a two way street. It takes more that 1 week or 4 weeks to learn the inside and outside of a subject and to fully understand the nature and intent of the learning. Learning the options and also what is required also takes time.

Then comes the examination of the subject (pose) do you understand the pose or subject? Can you learn the different variations and options and learn how the body moves in each part of phase of the class. Do you understand the holistic elements of the class? Can you reach inside of yourself and try to locate something that you can only locate inside to extend the pose and become the best at doing the pose?

Finding the balance is what it is all about. I guess the Ying and Yang (Left/Right) connection of the poses and balancing the elements and understanding what each pose is really about.

The next time you are in class examine the whole pose. Find where you are at in each pose. Locate your essence and find what parts of the pose are connecting to you.

Learning breath and breathing cycles and trying to inhale and exhale when it is required. If you learn our breath and also the pose and connect them together then Bodybalance takes in a new and indepth meaning.

I am finding with Bodybalance 33 that I am learning new parts of myself. That sounds so strange to some people? Tracks 1, 4, 6, 7, and 8 in the current release are allowing me to explore new essence's of the poses and interconnecting the poses with breath - stillness - center.

I guess when you watch the DVD for this release and what the presenter for track 1 said at the end of the track was a bolt of lightning to me. I have not heard something so profound on any Bodybalance release that impacted on me on so many levels and what she said .
Laurence Klares (Master Trainer France)
is a wonderful teacher and through her I am learning so much.
Thank you for your spirit - teaching - and self examination on Bodybalance 33!

Bravo to Laurence I am learning from you and you have taught me things watching you teach the release that I am now examining.
Awesome work Laurence and she has taught me so much by what she said at the end of track 1 that inspires me today.

Longer Bodybalance release this time!

I love what Jackie has done by using longer tracks in the releases. In the last few releases Jackie has used some rather long tracks. I must admit they are harder to learn and try and remember the lyrics and the music. I guess it is like dancing you have to learn all parts of the routine I can remember when I had to learn a Jazz Ballet track that was close to 20 minutes in choreography to learn it was a challenge. At the end of the day I learned it and was able to do the routine. Bodybalance 33 is a very long release and it is a wonderful release to learn.

Thank you Jackie for Bodybalance 33 :) and a wonderfully longer release :)

Track 6 Bodybalance/Flow 33 harder options and more harder poses!

There has been plenty of talk regarding this pose. Some have been saying they will get it. If you present track 6 you need to be able to do the pose. There is no easy way to learn it you have to learn it and present it as Jackie and the presentation team have on the DVD.

This is where Bodybalance/Flow throws a curve ball into the equation and I clap my hands to Jackie for adding tougher poses into the mix and making me step outside of myself and explore my own failings and strengths.

Track 6 is achievable practice, practice, practice, practice it will come and you will be smiling when you have achieved this pose and be proud that it was done.

Namaste :)

Bodybalance 33 at a glance!

Here we go.

Wont say the names of the tracks yet.

Track 1 is a wonderful track incorporating a wonderful set of poses. There is a flavor of pure serenity in this track. I love the movements and they are achievable by everyone. Jackie uses a tai chi pose I love. That pose circles around the poses of the track. Love this one and it is a going to be a classic Bodybalance Tai Chi warmup track.

Track 2 movement wise you need to embrace the flow of the music. If you don't engange the music then the flow won't happen.

Track 3 Love Moby and you won't be disappointed with this track 3. Tons of yoga based poses and love the way it was taught I am so much a fan of the presenter of the of this track now. Awesome work.

Track 4 In the 30's series of Bodybalance this one is up there with Missy Higgins track. You glide from one pose to the next one. Won't give away to much, for the folks in the USA and Canada who have not seen it yet. I will do something on this track in August 2006.

Track 5 Wow what a wonderful track a set of awesome connected poses Jackie has put together. This track is now one of my favs in the 30's series of Bodybalance. You are going to love what Jackie has choreographed in this release.

Outstanding work!

Track 6 is the halfway in the class.Will write more about this section of the class in August when everyone has the release. If you are in the USA and Canada enjoy this track at your 1/4.

Track 7 love the track selection for this release. Love the ending of this part of the track won't say much more except that I loved the ending when Jackie used it before.

Track 8 brings a special track to Bodybalance I love the simplicity of this track and the objectives Jackie has choreographed. Less complicated means more harder work.

Track 9 brings release 33 to a climax Jackie has some special poses in stall for everyone here. Love the ending.

Track 10 - 11 will write up something on them in August 2006.

Bodybalance/Flow 33 is stunning - visually spectacular and a wonderful journey into what is possible.
