I mentioned recently that I had purchased a couple of yoga DVDs. I love yoga. There's something about it that makes me feel so long and sleek and feminine. I wanted to share that feeling with you, so here are reviews of the workouts I've been doing.
First is 10-Minute Solution Yoga for Beginners. I bought this at Sam's Club for about $15. It has 5 workouts that are 10 minutes each. You can do one, two, or all five. I'm gonna give this DVD a 3 on a scale of 1-5. The workouts are okay and the instruction is good, but I just couldn't really get into it. If you take the DVD out of the player, you have to listen to all the beginning mumbo-jumbo every time you start it again. It can't be fast forwarded.
Next is The Firm Power Yoga. This one's about 35 minutes and involves several women at various levels, so you can follow whoever is at your level. This DVD is a little more intense and is a great workout. You will sweat and you will be sore. I give it a 4.
Lastly is Element AM & PM Yoga for Beginners. This is my favorite. I'll give it a 5. There are two workouts (obviously) of about 30 minutes each. The AM workout is energizing and the PM is relaxing. Both do exactly what they're supposed to do. I bought these last two at Walmart for $9 each.
If you don't want to feel like you're exercising or you're just not keen on a lot of jumping around, try yoga. If you don't want to commit yourself, you could check out some DVDs or tapes at the library and see how you like it. Have fun!
