-Has 5 different 20 minute practices.
-Each practice has a specific focus: standing poses, twists, backbends, foreward bends, and hip openers.
-The practices are great for beginner/advanced beginner and intermediate yogis. The poses can be modified for different fitness levels.
-Each practice is well-rounded with thorough warm up time and shavasana/meditation at the end of each practice.
-The flow from one pose to the next is very well choreographed with little in between pose movement.
-The music is PERFECT! This yoga DVD has the most relaxing and inspiring music I have heard on a yoga DVD.
-The setting is stunning. The atmosphere of the wide open desert is breathtaking, awe-inspiring and the perfect thing to wake up to! I feel so inspired doing yoga with this scenery, I feel like I am there in the wide open spaces.
-Rodney Yee gives excellent and highly detailed direction.
-I have had this DVD for about a year and I still use it nearly everyday. I don't always use it in the morning, the practices are good for any time of day. The point is I love it so much I am STILL not tired of it! I have a whole stack of yoga DVDs and this is one that I continue to use very frequently while others just collect dust.
-Rodney gives excellent guided meditations at the end of each practice. Each meditation is different and relates to the specific practice.
-Sometimes Rodney's instructions are so detailed that I am not sure what he means. How do I "release my muscles away from the bone"? Not sure what he means by that.
I was in martial arts for 30 years. You would think a martial artist wouldn't need yoga- WRONG! I was tight in my hips and low back.I have knee, hamstring and shoulder problems all stemming from years of abuse, accidents, and the "I'll never die" syndrom. Yoga has helped in all these. I have tried some other peoples' DVD's and keep coming back to Rodney Yee.
Although Rodney has longer DVD's I like the 20 minute sessions in the morning. They help the day get off to a good start. They will show you your weak areas and bound up areas. Rodney talks you through the moves in a calm, never hurried way. After doing them a few times, you don't even have to watch it. Just listen to him and the calm background music.
The only thing that would have helped me more is doing yoga sooner in my life.
I would also suggest getting some knowledge about and purchasing a foam roller.
The two go hand in hand at my house.
EDIT- Apparently I was wrong on never having written a review. I forgot I wrote one for some speakers- duh- sorry.
Years ago, I misplaced my AM PM Yoga CD. I started using misc. Instructor/Vendor Yoga CD's on hand. Some were better than others, but none were great. Yoga became a chore, I lost interest and quit doing home Yoga altogether.
Last summer, someone mentioned Rodney YEE AM PM Yoga. My heart lept. I remembered how I enjoyed his CD. Rodney Yee AM Yoga is the perfect workout for me. I bought the original AM PM Yoga, and AM YOGA for Your Week. I look forward to doing this simple robust workout every day. Thank you Rodney Yee
At home I generally will pick other longer and harder DVDs, but I still find I want this one whenever I'm in the mood for another 20 minutes of something specific like twists or standing poses or backbends or hip openers. I'd rate this DVD as advanced beginner or lower intermediate.
This is typical Rodney Yee -- beautiful scenery, his very soothing voice, no unnecessary chatter, good suggestions for improving the pose just a tad and very logical sequences on the poses. I love that I rarely even need to look at the screen now. I can just listen and know exactly what to do as his cueing is so excellent.
I wish I could find another teacher I like this much so I could buy all of his/her DVDs too. I think I have all but 2 of Yee's as I so love his style.
