Bodybalance 47 First Look My Viewpoint

This is the final release of 2009. I come to this release mentally exhausted and emotionally wasted. Due to personal things going on in my life. It has been a really reflective month and I now know how saying you love someone is very important. 

This release is now my favorite from the 40's series of Bodybalance. It is my favorite release of 2009. Mainly for the fact that every track takes me back to the teens, and twenties of mid section of Bodybalance. What I love about this release is the music and more important the flow of the moves from one track to the other. 


Here we go:


Track 1 is a beautifully flowing track it is a happy and joyful intro to the class. There are 5 set moves in the track they flow really in synchronization  from one pose to the next which sets the pace of this release. Jackie does a wonderful job introducing us to this release.



Track 2 by a group I have featured here a long time ago.I love their music. There are 6 blocks in the sun salutation they flow in perfect unison. There is a natural flow in the music and it just moves into your head and stay there. The music and symbols synchronizes the music to the moves. When you hear the cues and match them then you are in perfect flow with the music and yoga poses.


Track 3 from this release has many challenges the most challenging is the second sequence. Just trust yourself and know your mental toughness and you will be amazed what is possible and what you can do. It is a fast track transitions are the main focus in this release.


Track 4 Is the best track 4 from the 40's releases for me I don't know why? It just relates to me and I guess where I am currently in my space I love this track. There are a set of poses that are bought together in synchronization. As I said I love this track and it beings a softness to my heart when going through it.


Track 5 A very tough track 5 not saying much about this track. However,. the poses are tough and require good yoga base to work from. You simply melt into each pose. 


Track 6 brings back allot of floor work it is a set up track. Reminds me of Foolish by Ashanti. 

Track 7 the big track from this release. Not saying much till everyone has done this release. It is a cool track :)


Track 8 Short and sweet lots of twisting variations in this track. Nothing complicated by well worth exploring options. 


Track 9 Brings back something from the past and something new Annie Lennox closes the class to a classic 70's song. It is a body position - set up and correcting track. The ending is simply wonderful. 


Overall this is the best release for 2009 to me and the best for the 40's series of Bodybalance. I may come to this release emotionally drained and that I think makes it an awesome release. It lifted me out of a space I was in and brings a happiness to my life. 


Awesome work by Dr Jackie Mills and well 2010 is coming soon and Bodybalance 48 and 49 next year.  It has been a awesome 2009 for Bodybalance. Bring on 2010 ;) and the 50's series of Bodybalance. 


Cheers all :)

Scorpion Pose Bodybalance 47

You are all going to love this pose. You really are won't say much for those who have not done the release. But will do a deep article here in a few weeks when everyone has done this release.

Stay strong and be committed to this pose and you will feel a sense of achievement. :)

First Look Bodybalance 47

Bodybalance 47 came my way this weekend. You are going to love this release. To me this is a highlight release of 2009.

I am going through he release tonight, it looks a really excellent release to me the standout track would be 1 and 5 so far.

There are a number of long held poses in this release. Some inovation in tracks 2 and 7. Love the Scorpion Pose in track 7 and also the return of a pose from the early 20's of Bodybalance. They say its is a new move but us old skool remember it from way back then. There is some variations in this release and a few suprises. I won't say much about that.

I will do a review of Bodybalance 47 when it all sinks in.

For those who have not done this release be prepared for a tough class, strong poses and an awesome track 1 :)

You will love this release. :)
