Jaclyn Smith 1945 – Ballet Yoga Booty
“I’m now incorporating into my exercise regimen a class with my daughter. I think it’s called “Ballet Yoga Booty” so you do a little bit of everything, but you’re moving for that solid hour. It’s really fun and something for me to do with her. I love it because it’s aerobic without making you wish that it was over already.”
*If you don’t live near a studio, look online for a Ballet Yoga Booty workout that you can do. There is a 4-week option that you could buy online as well.
