I tough my neutral position was fine until this explanation, I realize my knees are taking a lot of my weight, so thank you for getting me out of that mistake. The class was wonderful, hard work and easy to follow, pretty much all the basic movements you want to learn as a beginner.
Needing some advice. I'm a complete beginner to dance, much less belly dancing and am very interested in joining, but I'm not sure whether to rent for 30 days or do the monthly. In your experience, how long does it take the average person with no previous experience to comfortably learn and be able to advance to the next video in the series? This is something I've wanted to do all my life and would love to start immediately.
Amazing.. just amazing class... Beautiful... I am so far away, here in Mozambique, Africa, and for me its just amazing that i can have this kind of classes.. Thank you so much... Thank you soooooo much....
Love this class, thanks Ashley! Just a quick question for the pilates warm up: I'm finding the c-curve exercises difficult and a bit straining on my low back (have prior back issues and had surgery this year). What could you recommend as an alternative that isn't quite so dependant on the low back? Thanks so much!
This is my first class with Datura Online. I did a bit of belly dance about 5 years ago, and never really progressed much without knowing how to practice. This is so much fun and a great help! Thank you so much Ashley for your wonderful teaching and warm casual manner, I felt well guided throughout!
Ashley is an excellent teacher! Admittedly I felt pretty hopeless the first time I tried this video, but on the second time around I am surprised at how well my muscle memory works. I think the key is to do these things over and over until it feels more natural. She does a perfect job at explaining each movement.
I loved this one!!!! a few weeks ago i was having trouble following, but today I could do it with noproblems, and Ashley its just lovely
I love it! The isolations in this video are my favorite because they're easy to follow and broken down really well. I love her teaching style :)
Just did this workout for the first time - kicked my butt! Totally worth it, I'm going to do this every day until I feel comfortable enough to move forward. Love that there's a warm-up and cool down. I've watched many videos that don't have these. Ashley is beautiful to watch and makes the hard work that goes into these fun!
I am a brand new belly dancer. I come from a dance background but I haven't danced in a long time and I have a lot of weight to lose and a lot to learn (and re-learn). I have been doing this class almost every day for two weeks. In just that short amount of time I feel so much stronger, and I am committed to sticking with this video until I commit every movement to muscle memory. Thank you, Ashley, for your great teaching, and to DO for giving me the opportunity to learn to belly dance despite living two hours away from a belly dancing class.
I haven't danced in a while and felt like I should start from square 1 and this is the perfect video for that!
WOW that was a workout! I loved it though, Ashley is very personable and lovely to watch, and she gives very clear and understandable instruction. I've never been able to get the back drop part of the chest circle until this. I'm looking forward to working on this until I can do the whole thing without pausing :) Thanks!!
Loving this class! I think Ashley is just lovely and its really helped me develop my strength in my arms and legs. The first time i did it, the pilates bit nearly killed me and i couldnt get all the way through, now i can follow the footwork, can get right the way through and am thinking about moving on to the second class :)
Thanks Ashley (and crew)
I had wonderful practice with you, Ashley! Perfect way to sharpen the locks and conditioning is also very efficient. Thank you so much for the series!
I love your style of teaching, Ashley. I made it all the way through today and am loving that I am actually starting to feel each group of muscles.

The Beginner's Tribal Fusion Series: Class 1, is really good for postures and locks. I had a little trouble to follow the footwork, but I listened again and I understood! Until now I could not feel my gluts, but how you teach them is really effective. Thank you !
