Customer Reviews

Rodney Yee's "Yoga: Core Cross-Train" DVD is an excellent yoga DVD for a beginner like me.
Scott Schiefelbein
Although I really liked parts of this routine, it felt a bit disjointed to me (also, I think it focuses more on core flexibility than on strength).
doctor_beth
Easy to follow and really helps to loosen my back and legs, get blood flowing and generally awaken all muscles.

The Good: Very different feel to the practice of yoga, moderately slow with hip openers sprinkled in. Separate strength and restorative sections, along with a pleasant interview with Rodney Yee.

The Bad: Pacing of strength section is odd. Mediocre core workout/ very easy yoga practice with a select few common poses.

The Verdict: If you like power yoga, this DVD probably isn't going to hold enough challenge. If you're new to yoga, prefer something easier, or are perhaps rehabbing from an injury - this might be worth a look.

Full Review: My preference is "power yoga". If you've used Yee's other offerings (Yoga-full body, yoga-strength, intermediate yoga) or have taken a yoga class - you've probably experienced "power yoga".

"Yoga - Core Cross Train" is a very different take on Yoga from Gaiam/ Yee, which I was open to after using (and liking) "Yoga Burn" for a time. However, whereas "Yoga Burn" was a slow, intense workout (the slower the practice-the more intense it became), "Core Cross Train" failed to deliver. It's a very easy yoga practice, but one that you probably wouldn't recognize. The "strength" practice begins by targeting your core... while lying on your back or seated on your behind. At times Yee races through seated poses like: cobblers, staff, seated wide-angle, boat - a convention that becomes rather annoying. After twelve minutes, you finally get into a few downward facing/3-legged dog poses, and some chest openers. Right about the time your heartbeat accelerates above resting, you move back into more sedate positions. When the practice had completed, I was certain that I had mistakenly selected the "restorative" section.

I hadn't.

YOGA CORE CROSS TRAIN includes 2 workouts; CORE STRENGTH and CORE RELAXATION, each being 30 minutes long. I've found this is an ideal length for me to find the time and motivation to do regularly. There's also a 12 minute motivational interview with Mr Yee included. Filmed in Glen Canyon Arizona, the back drop scenery is gorgeous and as usual Rodney Yee's voice instruction is flawless. You can't beat the price of this DVD either.

CORE STRENGTH is a fantastic workout that has become a regular part of my exercise routine. Without being too intense or painful, you will definitely feel this in your core and abs the next day. I would also be able to recommend this to beginners as the poses are basic enough and move relatively slowly from one to the next with excellent cuing as usual. Core Strength works the entire body and I feel stretched and taller when done.

I didn't enjoy the RESTORATIVE workout quite as much. It's v-e-r-y slow and done from either a seated position or lying down. You will however stretch out your waist and lower back and definitely release tension. A blanket or bolster is used continually throughout this practice and I did get kind of annoyed with the constant folding and messing around with said blanket. However if done in combination with the Strength practice this is a complete one hour workout.

Some of the poses used; child's pose, staff, cobblers, wide angle, boat, 1 leg seated foreword bends, lightning, sphinx, locust, cobra, down dog, rolling plough, bridge and a standing arm swing with a twist which was different and felt really good. There's a brief relaxation at the end of each. Namaste.

I would rate the Strength portion of this 5*'s and the Restorative 3*'s

I found this yoga video extremely helpful for anyone getting back into yoga or beginning. The benefits are cumulative over time. The 30 minute core session is a great intro for those who have always wanted to practice yoga but found most beginning tapes too advanced, even the most basic. I have gained the strength, mind and spirit to understand the deep essence related to yoga so that I can easily continue on the path of yoga and all that it offers. Yes the tape is very basic but it is deep and full and core, not just physically but mentally and spiritually. It provides that opportunity. So if your not just interested in physical power yoga, and you want to experience the depth of what yoga offers, please start here and use this tape for several months. You won't be disappointed.

I kindly disagree with most of the other reviewewrs. This is an AWESOME Yoga DVD. The two workouts emphasize flexibility in the spine, particularly the upper back and chest, by bending in the opposite direction from backbends. These workouts are an excellent compliment to A.M. Yoga for Your Week.

These are two short workouts (around 30min each) suitable for advanced beginner or intermediate level. The main emphasis is flexibility, with a secondary emphasis on strength through isometric exercise. Each workout includes some fast paced warmup moves at the beginning to remind your body about how far it stretched yesterday, then an emphasis on moves that are held long enough for the muscles to relax and stretch further. This is all typical Yoga (aka Hatha Yoga). As the names imply, one workout emphasizes stomach strength and the other emphasizes flexibility. The strength workout fills the gap between a beginner workout and an intermediate workout that assumes you can do a shoulderstand or the plow.

I'm not sure why, but many other reviewers seem to want aerobic exercise. They would probably be happier with a step aerobics or kickboxing workout.
