The twists segment is my favorite.
On days that I prefer a more well-rounded morning practice, I do the A.M. portion of the Yee/Walden A.M./P.M. Yoga for beginners CD, then follow it up with a more targeted sequence from Yee's A.M. Yoga for Your Week. That combination loosens me up and primes me for a more challenging workout later in the day, whether it be yoga, pilates, kickboxing, hiking, whatever.
Oh, and the cinematography is as breathtaking as the music is enchanting. A delightful experience!
STANDING, 22.5 minutes
Standing postures include standing forward bend, tree, triangle, side angle pose, warrior 1, and warrior 2; standing forward bend is performed in-between some of these poses. The standing poses conclude with chair and wide-legged standing forward bend before moving to the floor for hero and then finishing in relaxation pose. Yee offers some particularly nice form pointers while holding the standing poses.
TWISTS, 26 minutes
This practice opens with a series of reclined twists (one of which uses a strap). Yee then transitions to standing with down dog and standing forward bend for revolved prayer twist and crazy dog. Coming back to seated in cobbler's pose, he performs a twist in wide-legged seated pose and two variations on Sage 3 posture. This practice finishes with half Lord of the fishes, cobra, and relaxation pose.
BACK BENDS, 25 minutes
Yee starts here by rolling two blankets together to create a bolster for under the upper back; he lies over this for a gentle lying backbend.Read more ›
