“A welcome change… calming and, dare I say it, fun!” –The Guardian UK
Praise for the Fitness for Indie Rockers series:
“A refreshing change from the usual workout DVD. The option of selecting a range of available music or providing your own is great, and the exercises are challenging. This is the best workout DVD I’ve ever seen, and I will definitely be checking out Chaos’ other DVDs in this series. If you’re looking for something to spice up your home workout, Pilates for Indie Rockers is highly recommended.” –DVD Talk
“Pilates for Indie Rockers will get you amped to build a harder core.” –Women’s Health Magazine
“If you’ve already mastered Yoga for Indie Rockers, we recommend you move on to its pilates companion DVD. Chaos – yoga instructor, personal trainer, tattoo enthusiast – is back and will help you stretch your core into shape.” –Alternative Press
Ever wonder why every exercise video seems shot on a hermetically sealed soundstage with a Stepford Wife for an instructor and some John Tesh-sounding new-age beat pulsing in the background? Well Chaos has… she’s a certified yoga instructor and personal trainer who teaches a rock-n-roll hardbody yoga class in the center of Hollywood. She thinks fitness videos can have attitude and great music and the kind of badass energy that’ll psych you up to work out everyday and get in awesome shape. And who are we to argue with a drop-dead gorgeous yogi who could totally kick our asses?
In this DVD you can select your favorite indie rock workout mix (or play your own) and follow along with three students of varying skill (Karri Langlois – beginner, Kristina Sefeldt – intermediate, Page Turner – advanced).
Features: Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced moves, special “Beginner Session,” three selectable channels of music featuring over 30 songs from popular bands including Jet Lag Gemini, Kevin Devine, Roses Are Red, House of Fools, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Pelican, Alec Empire, Two Lone Swordsmen, Sorry About Dresden, Criteria, Ladyfinger (ne), Crash Romeo, Hello Nurse, Novemberkills, DoubleheadeR, Enduser, Edgey, Paulson, and more!
Chaos is a certified yoga instructor, personal trainer, dancer, and burlesque performer. She is a member of the Pin Up Girls burlesque-cabaret company in Los Angeles and has her own line of workout videos: “Yoga For Indie Rockers,” “Pilates For Indie Rockers,” and the forthcoming “Burlesque Workout For Indie Rockers.” Chaos started dancing at the age of 3 and was teaching dance by the time she reached high school. She expanded her studies to include yoga and pilates while attending Western Michigan University, then relocated to Fort Lauderdale to attend the Art Institute. While in Fort Lauderdale, she studied Hardbody yoga under her mentor Tari Rose, who encouraged her to become a certified yoga instructor. Chaos developed her own style of yoga workout that incorporates elements of Hardbody yoga, Bikram yoga, Pilates, and aerobics. She found that the usual rainforest/chanting music associated with yoga lacked the energy needed for the vigorous workouts she’d developed. She began testing a variety of musical styles with her classes and quickly discovered that rock music and yoga workouts went surprisingly well together. The mix became increasingly popular; students commented that the classes were more fun, and Chaos observed the students were working harder in class. This eventually led to the “Fitness For Indie Rockers” line of workout videos.
