Good Yoga Workouts
on January 11, 2013
These DVD's are done as if the trainer is giving Bethenny and us a yoga lesson. Bethenny chimes in periodically to ask questions or make comments, but the instructors do the teaching. Both instructors are very easy to follow and both of them stress the importance of doing the poses correctly and breathing throughout.
Body By Bethenny is a great 40-minute workout taught by Kristin McGee. Bethenny's Skinny Girl Workout, with Mike McArdie, is done in three segments so you can (supposedly) choose the length that works for you. Since I hadn't done yoga in a while I chose the 15 minute segment. 30 minutes later I looked at the clock wondering why it hadn't ended. I guess I was supposed to be timing myself and just shut it off? But it doesn't seem like they would give time options if you still had to time yourself. The workout was great, but I was sore afterwards. Next time I will set an alarm so that I know when I can stop. This odd flaw would not stop me from buying the DVD's again.
I have some yoga experience and really liked these workouts. I felt like I learned something new and hearing that Bethenny was struggling to hold a pose made me feel better about my quivering legs.
