One of the themes I am doing for the Green Your Mom Giveaway Hop is Yoga. I was sent the Trudie Styler's Strengthen and Restore DVD for review. I have not ever watched a Yoga video so I was excited to see how it worked out for a 'newbie' like me. I loved how they walked me through each step of the way, including reminding me to breath, something you wouldn't think is necessary but you are in the midst of stretching and relaxing, you do need a gentle reminder to breath!
The stretching was not hard core, nor difficult, yet it enough to feel refreshed and stretched at the end of the routine.
The music took some getting used to, but that is quite common in any new work out video. I think this video will work well for not only the Newbie like me, but experience Yogini's.
About the DVD
"Trudie Styler and renowned yoga instructor James D’Silva transport you to a place of stillness and serenity with three new practices designed to strengthen the body while calming the mind. Discover the powerful combination of burning calories and toning muscles while learning to focus and relax. Includes three workouts: “Strong Body and Mind” is a full-length flow sequence to build heat for weight loss while increasing strength, flexibility and endurance. Traditional poses combine with a quiet tranquility for total mind-body rejuvenation (45 minutes). “Trudie’s Toning Practice” lengthens and stretches the muscles while increasing flexibility and range of motion (20 minutes). “Calming Meditation” helps you to visualize and focus to achieve both inner and outer strength (6 minutes). With bonus download: “Winding Down.” 70 minutes. Made in the USA."
Gaiam is offering one of my readers this same DVD and a water bottle as one of the sponsors for the Green Your Mom Blog Event beginning May 1-7.
