Rachel I actually blurted out laughing when you said "last breath.. well not ever...". :-) so good!
This is an excellent foundation video and I love the stretch and cardio elements worked into such a short but effective class.
I love this video and the Daily Dose series... It's my comfort practice. <3.
Does anyone know what video Rachel is referring to when she says there's one you can review that details that first combo in the 2 min drill section? I poked around, but couldn't find it. Thanks!
I love the daily dose videos so much!!
In this one though, I have a question. In the beginning yoga sequence at 7:10 after bringing the chest and legs up off the floor, when I bend and straighten my legs, it feels "snappy" in the backs of my knees. It's uncomfortable and I've tried to position/rotate my legs differently to see if it helps, but I haven't had any breakthroughs. Can anyone suggest what may be causing it? Thanks!!
Very cool work out, I truly enjoy working with this. Thanks, RB.
I love the daily dose videos to keep up on all the basics!
I've added zills to my practice too. The walking drill section in this daily dose is just the right amount of cycles to zill 3s, 337, 373, 355, 3513, and 13131 for each hip movement. Then I'll do 3's through the locking section and then do running 7s, 5, 4s and singles through the arabic & arabic shimmy portion.
Good stuff!!! Thanks Datura crew!
haha...I meant the 31313 zill pattern...not 13131....but that could be really interesting! :P
I love this practice and I've done it a few times now. I thought to add zills during the Arabic/Arabic shimmy part and I think next time I do this I'll add zills to the other parts too for extra zill practice.
First Daily Dose for me =) I think I generally prefer slower classes, cause with very concentrated ones like this, I find it hard to remember good posture and to keep the moves clean, since I'm busy trying to keep up the pace. But it's a good course to practice on a regular basis and it does fit into lazy or relatively busy days. I don't even have to make excuses when I'm revising for exams, cause this is a good break in between. Good option for me!
Oh goodness, doing this video the day after leg day! BRUTAL...my legs were shaking by the time we got to the 3/4 shimmy arabic! Man I love this. I wish I had a full hour three times a week to practice but there is no excuse with videos this length!
I've been an on and off dancer for years, your first DVD is still on the shelf but sadly scratched so badly it won't play. I love datura online, so much, thank you! My skills are slowly coming back. Even if I do a daily dose 3-4 times a week for a year I could stand on solid dance foundation once again. Hopefully things will change so I can do a full hour 3 days a week some day soon when my 2 year old is not so needy, lol.
Another great Daily Dose -- love working it with Arbibi! Thanks so much, and keep 'em coming!
Just had my first go at a Daily Dose, (obviously this one!), and I did not always keep up but it was loads of fun anyway. I'll keep on practicing it, (daily, I think might be the way to go...), and when I can keep up with everything and keep it all neat and clean I will be feeling like a GOD!!! :) Yay!
Thank you DO and RB!
Once you get into a daily dose habit, life just doesn't feel the same without it! Thank you Sol & RB for fueling our dancing addictions :)
These 36 minutes can save you whole day!
I think I've found a new favourite! I've been so worried about how much TIME I put into practice, when I really need to worry about the value of what goes into that practice and what I get out of it. Wee!!
Still loving this one! Now to go do some yoga... x.
I love belly dance so much because of your style and you are a great teacher. <3
I love love love the daily doses! can't get enough of them
This video is very concentrated. :) You can practice the fundamental undulations. I really enjoy it! I recommend it!
What a great idea, now I won't get bored working out to the same video over and over. I love how you can sort by how long you have to dance. Now I have no excuse not to dance! Thank you so much.
This project/venue is ingenious. Thank you RB for ever bringing quality belly dance to us. :)
I look forward to the day that I make it all the way thru this still looking relaxed and gooey! :-)
Daily Dose Arabic Shimmy! ♥ it!
Great way to practice and sweat a lot in ca. 30 minutes only. I didn't dance regularly for ca. 1,5 years now, and the first Dose was really hard for me.
But you brought back my motivation to practice (almost) daily, since I know, that I can watch it for 30 days only. (Not as your DVDs, who are waiting on the shelf for lazy me, even if it's a really great weekly plan to 'Serpentine', with a lot of options.]
I like that we do yoga exercises as warm-up, and the shimmy drill will surely have the results. Dear Arbee, you have a grateful (and motivated) student in Hungary :]

It was a little strange to work out to my own video, but I actually enjoyed myself! Hope you all enjoy it, too. Love, RB
