Lotte Berk Method For Beginners: Basic Essentials

( 1 )

Overview

The Lotte Berk exercise method was developed by dancer Lotte Berk in the late 1940's. Though she danced with several prominent companies, Berk was left bound to a wheelchair after experiencing severe spinal injuries in a car accident. Berk later developed her own method of exercise that concentrated on the idea of building one's "core stability." Eventually, she was able to leave her wheelchair as a result of the strengthening, balancing, and stabilizing of her pelvis and lower back. Similar to pilates and yoga, ...

Overview

The Lotte Berk exercise method was developed by dancer Lotte Berk in the late 1940's. Though she danced with several prominent companies, Berk was left bound to a wheelchair after experiencing severe spinal injuries in a car accident. Berk later developed her own method of exercise that concentrated on the idea of building one's "core stability." Eventually, she was able to leave her wheelchair as a result of the strengthening, balancing, and stabilizing of her pelvis and lower back. Similar to pilates and yoga, the Lotte Berk method concentrates on targeting specific areas for strength and flexibility training. Working from the "core" provides an intensive workout and promotes the growth of muscle tissue, which burns calories at a faster rate than fatty tissue. The Lotte Berk Method for Beginners: Basic Essentials provides an extensive look at the intricacies of the method and an introduction to the most important core-strengthening exercises. Berk's other videos, such as The Lotte Berk Method for Beginners: Muscle Eats Fat and The Lotte Berk Method for Begginers: Hip Hugger Abs offer different intensities and allow one to target particular areas of the body. ~ Tracie Cooper

    Wacky porno music but a cool program

    I'm looking for something easy enough for an uncoordinated unmotivated unathletic asthmatic couch potato to do, but with payoffs in flexibility, strength and all around toning. Based on recommendations, I'm giving this a try. I've viewed the video a couple of times now, but haven't quite worked up the gumption to do it, though I think once I'm over the trepidation, I could manage to keep up by doing the modified moves demonstrated by one of the other pretzel-women in the video. The moves look like a combination of ballet and yoga, which seems reasonable. I can do without the spiritual aspects of yoga, and I don't have the youth and athleticism for real hardcore ballet, but the Lotte Berk video is a nice common ground. The background porno music is downright weird. I guess there's not much in the copyright-free generic backing tracks category for 'not-quite-as-fast-as-disco' but 'not-quite-as-slow-as-meditation' music except the stuff they used for this program, which sounds suspiciously like what those San Fernando artisans use in more horizontally oriented entertainment features. I may have a hard time doing this program without laughing if my parrot decides to start moaning in time with the music (I have NO idea where he learned that. None.) My only real annoyance with this video is the title sequence. You know that glitchy wiggly effect in too many car commercials, where it's meant to look edgy and cool, like an 8 mm home movie is jumping out of the sprockets and the image is dancing all over the screen? Yeah, that one. It was annoying when I first saw it, and it just gets more and more irritating the more often I see it. Does this effect now come free with some shareware desktop video production package or something? Jeez. It's like, so 1990s, you know? Anyway, I recommend this to my uncoordinated fellow exercise-phobics. There is nothing here that requires extensive choreography or an inbuilt sense of rhythm. The instructor is all tough-love and firm, and she doesn't go on about how much fun we're all having dancing around in our cute spandex outfits to frantic generic disko toonz, or run around like a screaming cokehead like that guy Peter Small or whatever his name is.
