Moms review of Gaiam 5 Day Fit Yoga - AM Peak
day one of am peak performance yoga,
28 minutes, described as s series of gentle morning stretches that will help awaken the body. I have not done much yoga over the last year, and think this routine over the next little while will be just what i need to get back into a nice stretching routine. Rod stryler, moves quite quickly from one pose to another - following the breath, the narrator helps to guide the moves, and reminding us during each posture, of some of the intricricies, what is important ie - keeping a straight back on forward bends.
it is short enough that most people, especially those starting out, could find an extra 1/2 hour in the morning, or as we did it, right after our dinner went into the oven, but before it was ready, and in the late afternoon it provided an energy boost for the evening. (much better for you than happy hour and a cocktail)
I am not a huge fan of yoga - it takes a lot to get me to go to a class, but I actually enjoyed this. The 30 minutes was a good length of time for starting out. The poses were not out of my range and Rod moved fast enough that it was a stretch not a strength workout.
The narrator was good to remind you to breathe in and out at certain times. Over all it was a very relaxing half an hour and I had a ton of energy afterwards.
I would recommend this DVD for anyone trying to get moving, or trying to get into yoga but is a little intimidated by the classes.
