Product Description

Book by Rodney Yee, Patricia Walden

Amazon.com

This yoga set is perfect for busy people who need to work in a way to relax. On the a.m. tape, Rodney Yee takes you through a 15-minute morning yoga set, while Patricia Walden leads a 20-minute evening routine on the p.m. tape. The a.m. tape was filmed on a beach on Maui at sunrise, providing a soothing background for this gentle workout. In the morning, Rodney tells us, "the body is rested but stiff from inactivity." The stretches he demonstrates are designed to increase circulation, improve mobility, and bring clarity to your mind. The movements are easy to follow (they include a conscious relaxation, the a.m. workout, and a guided meditation), and the set is short enough that it can be squeezed into the most hectic of morning schedules. The p.m. video was filmed at sunset in Death Valley. Patricia's yoga set is designed to quiet the mind after the stress of the day and to help you make the transition from active to quiet. She uses a combination of a centering series, standing poses, forward bends, and restorative poses to help you ease into night. You will need some firm blankets to sit on and a yoga strap (although a belt or scarf will serve the same purpose) to perform these movements. Perfect for the beginner and for the overworked. --Jenny Brown

5.0 out of 5 stars Positively Amazing!! I'd give 6 stars if I could! June 23, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
First, I'd like to start off by saying that before ordering this tape I have never even attempted to try yoga. I am not the world's most in-shape person, nor am I the world's least, so I really wasn't sure what to expect from this 'Beginners' set. I was quite surprised by what I was able to do, and also by what I found challenging.
It is advised that you watch the tapes at least once before attempting the exercises. While watching I thought to myself, "Wow, this has got to be the world's easiest form of exercise ever invented. I can't believe the hype over something so obviously simple!" I was not so quick to judge once I popped in PM yoga that evening. Patricia Walden makes the moves look simple and fluid, but they are challenging for the beginner! She starts off with a 4 minute centering series, followed by a 13 minute workout, and finally, a 3 minute guided relaxation. The tape isn't long, so it's easy to stay motivated when you get in and feel you may be too tired to do anything productive. The scenery is just beautiful, and the voiceover is clear, comprehensive and provides well-timed cues to the viewer. Simply fantastic before going to bed, you can really feel the stress melt away as you do the poses.
AM yoga is done by Rodney Yee. His workout, in my opinion, is not as challenging as Patricia Walden's PM yoga program, but it still provides an unexpected challenge to the beginner. Most mornings I am too groggy and irritable to think of anything besides a good cup of tea, but I somehow managed to pop the tape into the VCR. The exercises are gentle yet effective, and although, as mentionned earlier, they may look easy the first time you view the tape, they most certainly provide a great challenge!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Way to Start your Day and Relax at Night. March 20, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I purchased the am/pm yoga for beginners duo because my gym only offers yoga three days a week. I desperately needed something for the off days, and treadmills and steppers were no the answer i was looking for. I have always been an "atheletic marshmallow", however at the same time always a super flexible person. Yoga proved to be the happy medium in my life. It provides me with some type of exercise and at the same time allows me to relax. Rodney Yee has the most soothing voice. While I do find it troublesome that he often confuses "left" and "right" when giving directions, I try to remain conscious of those mistakes. I love that the am portion of the tape consists of gentle poses that ease one into waking up. I look forward to rising 30 minutes earlier each day to do the tape! Patricia Walden's pm session allows me to stretch out and release all of my day's tension and stress. I would like to see a bit more time spent on down facing dog in the pm video, but it is something I have added to my routine once the video is over. I would recommend this video set to a beginner, but I would definitely advise that you watch it more than once if you are new to this form of exercise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Beginner Yoga April 17, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I am 33 years old and I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for 5 years. I was hesitant to try yoga but I thought the videos would be a good way to start. Then if I had any trouble I could skip certain parts without being in a class and feeling embarrassed. I saw Rodney Yee (host of A.M. Yoga) on Oprah and the sample poses he taught were simple and effective. The tapes arrived yesterday. I tried P.M. Yoga last night and to my surprise I could do it. It was difficult but I can tell that I will improve. When I was finished with the tape I felt warm and relaxed. I slept great! This morning I tried A.M. Yoga with my 5 year old son along side. Again, it was difficult but all of it was manageable. There are alternatives shown for less flexible participants and props are suggested for beginners. I would recommend these videos to everyone looking to increase their flexibility and relaxation. The programs are challenging which tells me that there is room for improvement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Addition to a Weekly Yoga Class January 18, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The am and pm yoga tapes are great for my busy schedule as a graduate student. I've just begun a level 1 yoga class one day a week and I've been using these tapes in between. The am tape is relaxing and easy-going. Overall, the am tape is great for beginners. However, the pm tape is a bit harder and demands more. I like it better because I like to be challenged. I also feel great after stretching my body. Because you have to focus more on your moves in the pm tape, you forget the stresses of the day and increase your flexibility and relaxation. Just be careful, don't overexert yourself, and work at your own pace. With time, both tapes will come more easily and you can move on to more challenging tapes. I would reccomend a yoga class, along with tapes, for those just beginning a yoga practice. For those who haven't begun a yoga practice: start now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great video, unobtrustive instruction January 29, 2000
By J. Rice
Verified Purchase
Both videos are quite good, and are just the right length for me. The pacing is just about right, although I prefer to hold some of the poses a bit longer than the video does. The instruction is quiet and doesn't distract, and after watching it once I was able to do both videos without watching the screen. (just following the audio) It's true that the PM video calls on a little more flexibility, but I'd say that gives more benefits for beginners -- you need something to aim for.
