I’m still a beginner in Yoga, even though I’ve been doing it for a couple years. I call myself a beginner because I don’t practice often. When I was doing the P90X program I did it once a week, but I haven’t been incorporating it into my routines lately. In the last few weeks I’ve decided to change that so I’ve been using a DVD called A.M. Yoga for Your Week with Rodney Yee.
This DVD covers just about everything the yoga beginner can think of. It’s certainly not advanced, but it’s the perfect way to start the day and I’ve really found it to be a great way to end a weight lifting routine. A.M. Yoga For Your Week with Rodney Yee contains five 20 minute workouts that are designed to do five days a week. I guess I’m required to take the weekend off? 😉
Each of the workouts are easy to follow and provide a nice variety in my yoga routine. The five workouts are Standing Poses, Twists, Backbends, Forward Bends, and Hip Openers. I like all of them, but the Twists routine feels great, especially since I have back issues. I’ve really been enjoying doing these yoga routines every morning before work and although they’re simple I feel full of energy when I leave for my commute.
I’ve recorded a few poses from each routine and created a video so you can see an example of what’s included every day. I apologize for the cluttered basement and poor lighting.
