Product Description

Soothing Yoga for Stress Relief and Relaxation Welcome to Crunch Fitness. You'll unwind and drain your tension away with this soothing, restorative yoga program. In just thirty minutes, melt anxiety into tranquility with yoga postures specifically chosen to release tension, increase strength, improve balance, and enhance flexi-bility. Don't let the candles fool you; you can do this workout any time as a personal "pick me up." The emphasis on breathing and meditation will help you feel recharged and renewed; it may even help you sleep better. There is more to health than being thin or fit. A little yoga every day is the best R & R you can wish for. All fitness levels. A yoga mat or a non-slippery surface and bare feet are highly recommended. The CRUNCH Philosophy: The CRUNCH fitness program welcomes people from all walks of life regardless of shape, size or ability. We created a workout environment that is not competitive or judgmental. Enjoy these favorite classes with imaginative instructors in an atmosphere that makes working out fun. Meet the instructor: Sara Ivanhoe, Los Angeles. Certified yoga instructor. Fitness philosophy: Yoga is like a marathon, not a sprint; slow and safe persistence gives you the best results. The main thing is to have fun and keep your sense of humor. Enjoy and you're more likely to stick to it. Favorite binge food: pasta. Please consult your physician before beginning this or any other exercise program.

The name may suggest a bedtime yoga routine, but these deep stretches and restorative postures are also appropriate in conjunction with a cardio or strength training workout--or as a stress buster at any time of day. Instructor Sara Ivanhoe has a soothing, encouraging manner, but dispenses with the pseudo-spiritualism of some programs (as opposed to the real Eastern philosophy espoused in more serious efforts). She takes the time to explain the essential yogic breathing and each posture is clearly demonstrated--including modifications. After seated stretches, she teaches a series of kneeling cat poses, launches into down dog, and a standing twist. For balance: tree pose, then lunges, forward bends, and a butterfly stretch. This 43-minute practice isn't particularly advanced or strenuous, so beginners will be fine. Also included is a 16-minute "wake-up" routine, intended specifically for energizing in the morning with a standing cat stretch, pyramid pose and a squat. --Kimberly Heinrichs

This video is FANTASTIC. While I was doing it I truly had a sense of peace and well-being, in my mind AND in my body. The instructor is amazing. She does an excellent job of guiding the breathing, something I have trouble with because of my asthma. My breathing can get more hiccuppy than smooth, and her constant reminders helped a lot. The series of poses is flowing and exceptionally relaxing, and the instructor guides you through various modifications for all levels of flexibility and yoga experience. I don't know the names of every pose, but there are twists, forward bends, the famous downward facing dog(don't do it in front of your boyfriend!), and balance poses. She does an excellent job of guiding your form and constantly reminds you to relax, not to push yourself, and proper breath technique. I felt that this tape was accessible to anybody and I LOVE it. All the elements came together...lovely set, incredible instructor, soothing music, and constant encouragement and reminders to stay relaxed. To give you some idea of my fitness level, I work out 5 days a week, do cardio and weight training(for about 2 years), and consider myself definitely a novice at yoga, although I do have good natural flexibility. I'm telling you this because often with reviews when someone says something is too easy or hard, or just right, you have no idea how your fitness level would compare to theirs and it's not as helpful. That said, I truly believe anyone can use this tape and benefit, as there are excellent modifiers in both directions and she continuously emphasizes them, and the purpose of the video is purely stretching and tranquility. If you ever have stress, tension, or body soreness from a long day at work or an intense workout, GET THIS VIDEO. It will blow your mind. I also recommend Crunch Fat Burning Yoga, which is the same great instructor and a faster paced style of yoga.

This workout is visually stunning. Fuchsia mats have been spread around a wood floor in a room filled with vanilla candles. The candles are on the floor, up on stands, simply everywhere!

The curtains flow gently between brick walls and in the background you can see an opaque glass window. Sara is wearing a beautiful blue top while everyone in the room is also wearing colors of equal beauty. Imagine violet, lime green, lemon yellow, orange and powdery blue.

This workout reminds me of yoga in a temple. There is a spirituality about the entire workout that is different than the outdoor workouts or more strenuous vinyasa type workouts. This video tends to encourage you to relax more and look inward to encourage your inner beauty.

The purpose of this workout is to teach you to relax at will. Halfway through the workout, I was ready to just climb into bed and sleep blissfully until morning. The music and candlelight allows the tension to drain from your body as you breathe deeply.

The instructor has been doing yoga for a long time and she says learning to relax at will allows you to be in control of your energy. With Sara Ivanhoe giving you gentle instruction, you can stretch your way into tranquility. I loved her instruction, it was calming and you can see her inner beauty, calm and love for yoga.

Some of the poses include: cat pose, arch curl, side stretch, downward dog, sitting twists, tree pose, butterfly stretch. You won't have to worry about doing the Chaturanga or anything that is stressful, fast or complicated. These poses melt the body into sleep and must have been chosen to release tension and improve balance and flexibility.

You will need a sticky mat, a towel and a cushion.

This is set in Crunche's studio with added candles & billowy long white curtains to set the mood. There are 5 woman 1 guy in the back all in good shape. Everyone is diff with diff flexibility. Each pose is held for a long time & the music is very light & simple w/ocassional nature sounds.

You can see Sara has gotten better with the camera over the years, she's very compose, clam with gentle encoraging direction.

The candlelight is about 40 min long starting with 5 min of intro & deep breathing. While sitting cross legged, there is a upright torso stretch, side torso stretch, sitting spinal twist & cross legged butterfly stretch for 5 min. Next is kneeling cat/cow, a kneeling modified moutain pose, child's pose & cow pose which is repeated a couple of times like a modified sun salutation for 5 min. Next is downward facing dog, standing fwd bend, mountain pose w/arms & breathing & last, standing small spinal twist for 5 min. Next is tree pose (hard to do w/eyes closed), modified eagle only doing the hands for 4 min. Next is lunges to stretch the thighs, straight front leg stretch while kneeling for 5 min. Next is sitting straight leg fwd stretch, wide leged fwd stretch, butterly stretch & butterfly stretch for 5 min. Last is a laying down narative relaxation for 3 min, then knee to chest stretch & knees to side spinal twists, then quiet meditation for 2 min.

Energizing 15 min: 2 min breathing, standing cat/cow, standing arm laced to open chest (felt good & never seen before), simple standing thigh stretch, squat, simple kneelig torso stretch, kneeling subltle backbend, sitting simple hand gesture mudra for 1-2 min & end with 1 min sitting meditation.
