‘MAMA DONI’S JEWISH HOLIDAY PARTY’ – DVD

PromoImage‘MAMA DONI’S JEWISH HOLIDAY PARTY’ – DVD

I am a Christian, and the way I read the Bible, Jesus was a Jew. Therefore I also celebrate Jewish Holidays. Mama Doni gives Jewish and Christian children alike a way to celebrate the holidays with her new DVD Mama Doni’s Jewish Holiday Party. I received a copy for review and I absolutely love it. Not only does the DVD have great music, ya also get to learn how about Chanukah, Passover and Shabbat. Jewish Holiday Party also includes Mama Doni’s recipe for traditional latkes. If ya don’t know what a latke is, well it’s a really delicious potato pancake. Traditions such as Chanukah Gilt and the lighting of the menorah are highlighted in the video. Fantastic gift idea. Includes a CD of the songs. How cool is that?

About Mama Doni:

 Embracing and honoring Jewish tradition with a fresh, new approach, two-time Parents’ Choice winner Mama Doni (Doni Zasloff) sings, dances, and cooks her way through the holidays in a fun and inspirational DVD, Mama Doni’s Jewish Holiday Party, and its companion CD soundtrack, Mama Doni: The Acoustic Jewish Holiday Collection.

 There has never been a mama quite like Mama Doni, who manages to score a perfect 10 in the world of family music with a joyful celebration of Jewish tradition, culture, and ruach (spirit) set to the colorful sounds and vibrant rhythms of contemporary American bluegrass.

With so many Christmas entertainment options available to families, Mama Doni’s Jewish Holiday Party is ready to take its place on the shelf, filling a need for the millions of children who celebrate the Jewish holidays and for audiences who would like to learn about them.

Focusing on three Jewish holidays — Chanukah, Passover, and Shabbat — Mama Doni’s Jewish Holiday Party promotes an understanding of Jewish traditions, in Mama Doni’s warm, contemporary style.  Each episode tells the story of the holiday, offers exciting, original music, and includes a scrumptious cooking “how to” segment for such wondrous Jewish dishes as Traditional Latkes, Uncle Milton’s Challah, and Mama Doni’s very special Matzo Pizzza.

Ballet Beautiful Body Blast

6274mBallet Beautiful Body Blast

 Beautiful soft music plays as you follow along with instructor Mary Helen Bowers. A professional ballerina for many years Mary opened her own studio and developed the Ballet Beautiful workout method. With Ballet Beautiful’s Body Blast you get four 15 minute workouts that in time can transform you body into the tight toned masterpiece it was born to be. Eating right is really important if you want to stay looking and feeling your best. Knowing the proper exercises and how to do them correctly to get the results you want is a whole other matter. The workout itself makes me think of graceful Pilates. Nothing to hard but the moves really target all the right areas. I love that you don’t need any special equipment to do this video.  Mary has trained many well known performers such as Liv Tyler, Natalie Portman and  Zooey Deschanel. It actually took about a year of training to transform Natalie Portman into the look she needed for “Black Swan” Yes she used Mary Helen Bowers and Ballet Beautiful. So ya know it works.

Take 20: Three 20-Minute Workouts with Aimee

6396mTake 20: Three 20-Minute Workouts with Aimee

Day One:
 This DVD comes in three 20 minute workouts. The first of which is Take 20 Cardio Kickbox. I have to admit I felt a bit intimidated by the idea of kickboxing. Ya know what y’all, I did it all the way through first try. The instructor Aimee has her team showing many different levels of the exercises so people of many levels can join in. After the workout session I felt great. Got a little sweaty so now it’s time for a shower y’all. Tomorrow I will try out the Strength and Recharge segments.
Day Two:
  As I am doing the Take 20! Strength Training I notice the incredible muscle tone in Aimee’s legs. I’m thinking this is what I want too. Have you ever wanted to have a body that looked more like someone you have seen? Now I’m am not talking about those women in the magazines. Most of them are either photo shopped or need to eat something in my opinion. I am talking about ordinary folks around you. I have found that if you do most of the same exercises these people do your body will look similar to theirs. Ever noticed how most people in specific sports have similar bodies. swimmers, bicyclers, softball players, volleyball players etc? With this in mind I am looking forward to getting muscle tone in my legs similar to Aimee’s with Take 20 and the six simple exercise shown in the video.
Day Three:
 Take 20 Recharge is a wonderful way to melt away stress while giving your body a great stretch. Honestly this would be a great way to start everyday or to unwind before bed.
