I just received a new Rodney Yee yoga video in the mail the other day from Gaiam and I have to say that I love it already. Power Yoga Strength with Rodney Yee (my cover doesn’t look like this one, so I’m not sure if it’s the same one), is kinda short at only 24 minutes, but it was designed as a beginners video for strength in Yoga. The only yoga I’ve done designed to build strength was from the P90X program, so this was a very welcomed change because I’ve actually grown kinda bored with Yoga X. I have been doing it for about 2 years now after all. What do you expect?
One thing that Rodney Yee doesn’t do is waste time. Although the video is a beginners video, he flies through the workout like you should already know all the moves. It’s not all that difficult, especially the second time through, but it would have been nice to have a slower introduction. The 30 minute video was done in a snap though because it was so much fun. After becoming more familiar with the routine, the pace seems much more doable. I’d definitely like to upgrade to tougher workout after this one.
In terms of building strength, I don’t think this video is any competition to the P90X Yoga X routine, but Yoga X is an advanced program. I haven’t tried an advanced strength program from Rodney Yee, so it’s not fair for me to compare the two. I can say however, that I’m going to continue enjoying this Rodney Yee video for a while. Check out the video below for the first five minutes of me doing of the workout at normal speed or check the second video to see the whole thing in high speed.
Here’s the full video of me doing the routine in high-speed
