Living Yoga has created an exceptional yoga DVD with their three-in-one All-Day Yoga Workout, which combines three of their most popular programs. The first workout is A.M. Yoga for Beginners, a 15-minute morning set led by Rodney Yee. In the morning, Yee tells us, "the body is rested but stiff from inactivity." The stretches he demonstrates are designed to increase circulation, improve mobility, and bring clarity to your mind. The movements are easy to follow (they include a conscious relaxation, the a.m. workout, and a guided meditation), and the set is short enough that it can be squeezed into the most hectic of morning schedules.
Opinion of Betsy Woudenberg from San Francisco, CA
This is an excellent DVD that I used as an introduction to yoga, and that I continue to use two or three times a week to supplement my yoga studio classes.
The movements are largely stretches, with none of the "huffing and puffing" that more intense yoga can require. The teachers are very responsible about showing alternate poses when needed. The standing poses helped me with my initial balance so that I was able to sustain more challenging poses in my studio classes.
The production values are very good, and the audio quality is great. Many yoga teachers encourage the use of home yoga videos and DVDs, but recommend listening to them more than watching them (after you're familiar with the sequence, of course); with audio instructions only, you're more likely to focus on your own body rather than trying to mimic the "perfect" teachers. This DVD has great sound quality and instruction, and I'm able to turn away from the TV and listen only.
I recommend this DVD for yoga beginners, and for yoga intermediates looking for a light 20-minute program on days they can't attend longer classes.
