We caught up with ever bubbly Yendi to find out more about the DVD.
OAJ: How did this project come about?
YENDI: I am a dancer. It is my first love and passion as it is something I have been doing since I was 3 years old and what I went on to study in College. Dance was one of my methods of achieving fitness in preparing to compete in Miss Universe and was particularly useful after I gave birth to my daughter. I wanted to get back in shape but I was just not keen on getting into the gym at that point.
YENDI: As a passionate Jamaican who loves and lives our culture, I was eager to share our movement in a way that was close to my heart.
OAJ: What can we expect from the workout? Tells us what you do?
YENDI: You can expect a high energy, muscle sculpting, fat burning dance party. I like to stay fit but I rather dance than anything else. So this is a fun way to accomplish all the above and have a great time…plus feel sexy.
OAJ: We think your secretly a mutant but if you say you’re not … how did you get back into shape after the birth of your daughter?
YENDI: Haha! No mutant here! I DANCE! I MOVE!
OAJ: Is this workout video for any age and size?
YENDI: Any age…any size! Not only is it a workout but it is also a mini lesson in Jamaican culture and dance styles
OAJ: How can one get the video?
YENDI: The video is currently available in Wal-Mart in Canada. However it will soon be available outside of Canada. Please tell fans to keep checking the website inthedancefitness.com for updates.
