Fitness star and yogi, Hemalayaa, leads you through an intense 14-minute cardio dance routine set to a sassy bhangra beat. Jump, lunge, and shimmy your way to a slimmer waist; belly shirt optional! This excerpt is one of three routines from the ''Bollywood Burn'' DVD.

  • Length: 14 minutes
  • Equipment: None
  • Type of Workout: Cardio (aerobic) with lower-body toning
  • Fitness Level: Beginner to Intermediate
  • Impact: Medium- to High-impact
  • Safety Precautions: Exercise at your own intensity level, using tips provided to lower your intensity if necessary. Only complete as much of the video as you can, taking a break to recover (by marching) when necessary. Never stop abruptly--if you get tired, try to stay moving, even if you're just walking in place. As you progress, try to finish the entire video or to repeat the video.
