The 10-minute workout concept works very well for yoga, especially if you want to branch out and get more yoga into your weekly schedule, without cutting into your regularly scheduled cardio or strength workouts. If so, this DVD allows you to easily add just one segment to another workout for added strength or flexibility work. However, if your focus for the day is yoga, the versatile DVD program menu also allows you design a custom yoga workout of up to a 60 minutes.

The first run-through is pretty slow, so you can learn the vinyasa pattern and warm up, then pace picks up. Begin seated for breathing practice, 3x, then stand for two versions of the sun salutation.
Basic sun salutation vinyasa is done twice: mountain pose, forward bend, back extension, high plank, low plank, up dog, down dog, forward bend, forward extension, stand while reaching arms overhead, bring hands into prayer in front of chest, and return to mountain pose.
Repeat this vinyasa twice more, each time adding leg extensions in down dog, and warrior 1 on each side.Read more ›
Not surprisingly, this is not the kind of yoga where you hold postures for a long time. I would have preferred fewer postures held longer, but I think the majority of viewers prefer a wider range of postures held for less time. The style for most of it is vinyasa, or movement patterns linked by breath. Yoga Basics, the first section of the DVD introduces the Sun Salutations, with a variation that includes Warrior 1. Yoga for Buns and Thighs builds on the Sun Salutation by adding Warrior 2 and a Chair/Chair twist sequence. I love Chair twists, so this made me smile. In addition, she has a Lying Boat sequence which also helps target the inner and outer thighs. Yoga for Abs includes crunch variations- which always annoy me in yoga practices- as well as Leg Lifts (while supine and side-lying) and, of course, Boat. She also includes a Sphinx/Cobra to help stretch out the abdominals. Not surprisingly, this isn't a "flowing" or vinyasa practice, but that takes nothing away from it. I have a regular Pilates practice, so I see myself using this the least. Yoga Burn builds further on the Sun Salutation, now including Triangle as well as Warriors 1 and 2. We then hold Plank for about five breaths before moving onto three new mini-vinyasas. First, it's a Camel through Child's Pose, then Down Dog to Up Dog, and finally a Chair to modified Shoulder Stand. Each of the sequences is repeated five or six times before we move onto the next. The last one asks you to roll up from your back to standing without using your hands, similar to the opening sequence of Total Yoga. Tough!Read more ›

Yoga for Buns & Thighs-Start standing up with you hands in prayer pose. Yoga poses in order of appearance: Chair pose, high plank, low plank, upward facing dog, Downward facing dog, Warrior One pose, Warrior Two pose, and child pose. There are two other poses\movements that she does not mention by name.
Yoga for Abs-Starting down. Lara's V-sit exercises may be difficult for those people not in shape. Yoga poses in order of appearance: leg lifts, boat pose, table-top pose, snake pose, and child pose. Yoga for Abs segment in my opinion is difficult for to do if you are out of shape. If you are healthy, but not have workout in a long while, you might be able to do this segment.
Yoga Burn-This routine starts in mountain pose.Read more ›
