DCC fitness secrets revealed!
Give me a Y! Give me a O! Give me a G! Give me a A!
Did you know the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders have their very own official yoga instructor? Well, they do. His name is Kurt Johnsen, but for this review we are going to call him Dude. Why? Well, because it's what his name should be. Listen to him and see if you don't agree.
We have a choice of two practices, 25 or 45 minutes. Each workout consists of basic postures and you can follow the girls working at your level of comfort: beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Although focus is placed on the breath, there is little concentration on the bigger meaning of yoga. However, you will stretch and tone, and Dude is a good team captain...I mean, instructor.
This disc is pretty stacked, just like the cheerleaders. (Rim Shot!) In the end zone, we find a bunch of special features. There is an instructional segment which teaches poses more thoroughly, a brief Mixed Martial Arts Routine routine, and an intro to Tai-Chi and Kung-Fu. It's all filmed in the locker room or with the stadium in the background. The full frame video transfer and 2.0 stereo mix score the extra point.
Oh, by the way, be sure to click on the cute little stars next to the titles in the menu. Clicking on the words won't get you anywhere.
I'll be honest. I wanted to hate this disc. Kinda like I hated the cheerleaders in high school. (Okay, I didn't actually hate them. I envied them. But enough about my teenage nerd trauma...) I was surprised there was real substance to be found here. Dude and the girls have put together an accessible intro to yoga.
