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
*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!Read more ›
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.
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.
