5.0 out of 5 stars Rodney Yee still has new insights into yoga June 12, 2008
Format:DVD
This yoga dvd follows Gaiam's usual formula - beautiful scenery, voice-over instruction, and soothing background music. A new feature is the ability to choose between detailed or minimal audio instruction - very nice once you've practiced the routine a few times. The interview with Rodney Yee gives some good insight into his path toward yoga. The best part is the routines themselves. New yoga concepts are presented, not just a re-packaging of the many titles featuring Rodney Yee that you may have seen and practiced. He offers advice during the routines that seems small but makes the poses work so much better.
The twists segment is my favorite.

5.0 out of 5 stars New routines July 23, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We must confess that Rodney Yee is one of our favorite DVD-Yoga-Teachers. This DVD is great for three main reasons: 1) variety of routines = 5, 2) ability to have either detailed instruction or limited instruction, and 3) the routines are NEW. Gaiam has often repackaged routines from their library & so in the past you may have thought you were getting something new to add to your dvd library and you were actually getting something you already had. Very pleased with the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Right Sequences for Each Day July 15, 2008
Format:DVD
In this DVD, you can do a different sequence each day of the week. As I interpret the default order of the choices, they are just right for the five-day workweek: standing poses to get your motor runnin' first thing Monday morning; backbends on Wednesday (over-the-hump-day) to counteract the effects of slumping over the computer; hip-openers on Friday to open you up after a week of being chair-bound. The twists (Tuesday) and forward bends (Thursday) are delightful additions and could be done interchangeably. Take advantage of extra time on the weekends to do more than one of the sequences.

On days that I prefer a more well-rounded morning practice, I do the A.M. portion of the Yee/Walden A.M./P.M. Yoga for beginners CD, then follow it up with a more targeted sequence from Yee's A.M. Yoga for Your Week. That combination loosens me up and primes me for a more challenging workout later in the day, whether it be yoga, pilates, kickboxing, hiking, whatever.

Oh, and the cinematography is as breathtaking as the music is enchanting. A delightful experience!

3.0 out of 5 stars not "just like" his "am & pm yoga" dvd December 8, 2008
By Caitlin
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well the scenery is beautiful, but I wasn't thrilled with the presentation. I thought it would be 5 mini-sessions modeled after Gaiam's "AM & PM yoga dvd" that I love and recommend to everyone. That DVD had a 20 minute full body session that warmed you up, had great hip openers, back bends, twists, etc and had a bit of meditation at the end. I thought this DVD would be like that one, having a warm up and a meditation for each, but focusing on different areas/stretches each day. It's not. When you start, say, the "hip openers" selection, Rodney Yee is already warmed up and going super fast for someone who just woke up (it is AM yoga after all, and I get up at 4:45 AM) then he slows down later but by then you are all frazzled and trying to keep up and the whole idea of starting your day with some tranquility and a nice little stretch is out the window. The stretch is there, but I am recovering from an injury so I need the warm up so that I don't re-injure myself. I guess I could do a warm up before the DVD, but I bought the DVD for this purpose so I guess I'm a little disappointed... Plus, they say it is 5 - 20 minute sessions, but they are closer to 30 minutes each, which is nice to get more than you expected, but not when you're trying to get out the door on time! I guess I'm back to the same routine from "AM & PM yoga" every day w/ Rodney.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five short practices great for any time of the day January 15, 2009
Format:DVD
Rodney Yee, a veteran yoga instructor as well as the featured instructor of many yoga videos and DVDs, has recently released this new offering, AM Yoga for Your Week. The intent was to provide five 20-minute practices (but note that the actual practice times vary from 22-26 minutes) which could be used during busy weekday mornings to get the day off to a good start. In reality, these five excellent yoga sessions, each of which has a different focus, are appropriate for use at ANY time of the day. Although each individual practice revolves around a specific body area/group of postures, each are well-rounded, stand-alone yoga sessions. I have described the five practices briefly below.

STANDING, 22.5 minutes
Standing postures include standing forward bend, tree, triangle, side angle pose, warrior 1, and warrior 2; standing forward bend is performed in-between some of these poses. The standing poses conclude with chair and wide-legged standing forward bend before moving to the floor for hero and then finishing in relaxation pose. Yee offers some particularly nice form pointers while holding the standing poses.

TWISTS, 26 minutes
This practice opens with a series of reclined twists (one of which uses a strap). Yee then transitions to standing with down dog and standing forward bend for revolved prayer twist and crazy dog. Coming back to seated in cobbler's pose, he performs a twist in wide-legged seated pose and two variations on Sage 3 posture. This practice finishes with half Lord of the fishes, cobra, and relaxation pose.

BACK BENDS, 25 minutes
Yee starts here by rolling two blankets together to create a bolster for under the upper back; he lies over this for a gentle lying backbend.
