NEW From Gaiam: Rodney Yee's AM & PM Yoga For Beginners

Today's Review: Gaiam's AM & PM Yoga For Beginners
Rodney Yee & Colleen Saidman Yee, 2012

This dvd contains two 30 minute yoga workouts, one to be performed in the morning and one before bed. Both are filmed in beautiful outdoor settings and you won't need any equipment for these routines. There is a music on or off option.

AM Yoga is 28 minutes and is set on a gorgeous sandy beach with large rocks. You can see and hear the ocean in the distance. Rodney performs this routine alone and the workout is voice over. The routine is designed to gradually bring you from sleep to awake and is to specifically designed to to do upon awakening.

PM Yoga is 27 minutes and is set in a beautiful grassy prairie with mountains in the background. Colleen performs this routine alone and the workout is voice over. The routine is designed to ease you from wake to sleep, release tension, and relax. The routine is specifically designed to do before going to sleep.

The outdoor settings in these workouts are absolutely gorgeous! I love outdoor settings to begin with and these are some of the nicest Ive seen in a long time. I really like the concept of these workouts to gradually ease you into sleep or wake. Both instructors are obviously very knowledgeable about yoga. I received this dvd to review.

Not only will you increase your metabolism, but mustard seeds are a good source of antioxidants and omega-3s! Read more on Shape
