I absolutely love yoga!! While I’m not currently in session, I am actually a certified yoga instructor. I practice yoga almost everyday at home and I’d even go so far as to say it changed my life!
The thing that some people don’t realize about a yoga practice is that it is so much more than just breathing and stretching. While those things are a big part and a great benefit to our health, people should know of the intense muscular training that can be involved as well.
Yoga allows you to isolate certain parts of your body to work specific muscles individually and with great purpose. The strengthening(or tightening) of your muscles combined with the stretching(or elongating) that follows allow your muscles to be sculpted in a way typical weight training cannot.
So, ok, obviously I’m a fan, but this post is not only about yoga, but how you can incorporate it into your life. I recently had the opportunity to view the Yoga Sweat DVD and was very impressed!!
First things first. The instructor is perfect. She has a gentle tone to her voice that is easy to understand and helps keep things in a relaxed state throughout the workout. The other thing that I love about this particular DVD is the way it is broken up.
The video is 80 mins total, but it is broken up into a 10 min warm up, 10 min cool down, and two 30 min exercise segments so that you can customize it however you’d like. Perfect for all of us busy mamas who find it hard to set aside 80 mins at a time for working out!!
I know that buying exercise DVD’s can be tricky because you really don’t know if the style will gel well with your own, but I think I can tell you with a fair amount of certainty that this really is appropriate for most ages and fitness levels.
