Dailey Intervals: Why you shouldn’t miss it

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending a special Dailey Method class taught by the founder, Jill Dailey. This new class is called Dailey Intervals and takes the traditional Dailey Method principle of alignment and combines it in a simplified, faster paced class for 45-minutes of calorie torching awesomeness.

Not only did I get to partake in this new and killer workout, but I got to meet Jill Dailey herself! She’s a fit and petite woman, but don’t let her size fool you. Muscles rippled her arms and every other part of her, but like all of Dailey Method Venice’s lovely teachers, she retains a feminine and graceful quality. Also, check out how totally FLAT her tummy is in the picture above. Inspiring!

When I asked another member of the Dailey Method team about what sets Dailey Intervals apart she explained:

“Dailey Interval combines the toning and strength benefits of a mixed class with the addition of cardiovascular and endurance training. It was created to achieve the body’s optimum calorie burning rate in a 45-minute period with the long term benefit of cardiovascular strength and health. Students wanting an increased caloric burn will benefit from both the alignment and form principles but in a faster paced class.”

And after just one class, I was feeling that faster pace. There was more sweat and there was less time to think, but I left knowing that I had pushed my body a little harder, but had been kind to it all the same. While anyone can do Dailey Intervals, it’s recommended that you take several regular Dailey sessions first to familiarize yourself with the alignment principles.
