Editorial Reviews

AM/PM Yoga For Beginners is the perfect DVD to help you start and end your day.

AM Routines i are designed to help you wake up both your mind and body in a balanced, energetic and serene way.

PM Routines are designed to help you let go of the meental and physicaal stress of the day and to prepare for a deep relaxing sleep.

This DVD features over 10 routines with times ranging from 15 minutes to an hour, so there is always a routine that fits how you feel and how your schedule is at any given time and which will:

* Energize and awaken both body and mind
* Relax and unwind in the evening
* Feel great throughout the day
* Reduce stress
* Decrease lower back pain
* Center your mind and body


This DVD was shot on location at one of the most beautiful, tranquil beaches in the world, Half-Moon Bay, Antigua adding to the overall experience of tranquility.

BONUS FEATURE: The Dalai Lama discussing "Finding Peace"

The routines are led by world reknowned yoga instructor Barbara Benagh (former Yoga Journal Asana columinist and instructor on other acclaimed titles, including her previous release, Yoga For Stress Relief) who over the last 35 years has developed an insightful style that has emphasizes reducing stress and letting go of tension.

This DVD by renowned yoga instructor Barbara Benagh is similar in format to her previous DVD, Yoga for Stress Relief. However, whereas the latter offers practices for different conditions (back pain, headaches, digestive issues, etc.), in the AM/PM DVD, Barbara offers practices designed for morning or evening. These practices, which are slow-moving and quite gentle overall, range in length from 15 to 45 minutes, making it easy to fit yoga into even your busiest days. Barbara frequently uses props: in addition to a yoga mat, I would recommend that you have at least one blanket on hand (preferably 2-3), with pillows and an eye bag being optional.

A breakdown of the DVD is listed below. The headings are the items found on the main menu, and the bullets indicate submenu items (the times for each practice are given as they appear on-screen). I've included brief notes describing each of the practices.

Discussion of Meditation by HH The Dalai Lama

AM Routines
*Get Up and Go (15m)--a wonderful flow of upper back openers, including down dog, quarter dog, and cobra
*Sun Salutation Centering (15m)--a single slow lunge salutation combined with seated forward bends
*Breath Work (30m)--a gentle, all-lying/seated practice that includes twists, supported poses, and seated meditation; my favorite!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem - I Have Never Slept Better! December 12, 2007
This DVD has been a life saver! I have a some family issues and stress at work that have literally caused me to loose sleep and be tense throughout the day. I have tried sleeping pills, but I don't like the side effects. This DVD has helped me get a good night sleep again. It's so simple but effective. I only wish I tried this years ago and I could get all those hours of sleep back. I have begun doing the morning workouts as well and my overall calm during the day has been greatly enhanced. I am giving this DVD to several people for X-mas!

5.0 out of 5 stars Helps me unwind October 14, 2007
I really appreciate this DVD. I have 2 kids and a full-time job. At the end of the evening I really need to decompress and this DVD helps a lot. There are so many workouts that I can always find something that fits into my schedule and works for me. A definite recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waking Up and Ending Day Nicely November 5, 2007
I've bought many fitness and yoga DVDs and I find that this is the one that I use the most often because it is really effective.

The AM section really helps when I've got a stiff back or just at stretching me out and getting me ready for the day.

The PM has been really helpful in getting me ready for a very good sleep and unwind at the end of the day.

This is a very useful DVD. It's accessible for beginners and also beneficial for people that have done yoga for some time. Great for anyone looking for focused, effective and easy to follow routines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Morning, Good Night & Good Day November 29, 2007
This DVD is wonderful with a wide range of routines designed for the morning and evening.

Even with a busy schedule I am finding myself using this DVD at least every other day and have try to do at least one of the shorter practices once a day. On good days I manage to get a morning and night workout in and feel the difference.

If you are short on time I would suggest figuring out which is more of an issue, waking up or sleeping and target that to start because the DVD helps get you started or sleep properly and either one does make the day better.

There are 6 AM Routines - Get Up and Go, Sun Salutation Centering, Breath Work, Gentle Wake Up, Extended Morning, Wake Up the Spine, with range from 15 minutes to 45 minutes or so and 5 PM Routines, Short Rest, Breath Work, Unwinding Muscle Tension, Good Nights Sleep and Energizing Evening which range from 10 to 40 minutes. The routines cover more relaxing (less active) workouts and others that are more active. There is something for everything and everyone and the beach is stunning.

Definitely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This DVD is great! October 21, 2007
This DVD is the best I've seen for beginners. There are a number of routines from which to choose and Barbara Benagh describes each move so well. It is extremely easy to follow, yet still will do all that a beginner, or even someone more experienced, would hope for.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Yoga DVD I own October 9, 2007
I have always liked bodywisdom media DVDs since they have so much content, but this one might be my favorite. The instruction is fantastic and the beach where this is filmed is gorgeous. I have used this DVD several times and I really believe it helps me sleep better at night. Of course the Dalai Lama is a great bonus. A must have DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best February 20, 2009
Of all the yoga DVD's I've tried, this one is middle of the road. The routines are not bad and the scenery is beautiful. The problem I have with this DVD is that it seems to be a "cut and paste" job - the poses are cut and pasted to create routines of varying lengths. However, in doing so, there is no rhythm or smoothness to the routines. The scenery and music cuts and restarts at the end of each pose which can be a bit distracting. In addition, the poses are not in symmetry with one another. You go from sitting to standing to sitting to standing again - there is no smooth transition from pose to pose to create a well designed yoga workout. [...]
