I absolutely LOVE this workout. It's called Jillian Michaels: Yoga Meltdown and it's different from any other yoga workout I've tried. I have many Jillian workouts and I love her DVDs that require weights, but I love having this one as an alternate because I don't want to train the same muscles in the same way every day...it's great to mix it up!
What's different about this yoga approach? It has that "Jillian" twist on it...she makes it harder by repping out the poses! She explains a pose and then has you move within the pose using your own body weight. She then has you hold each pose at the end of each move. What does this do? It gets your heart rate up to burn more fat...and you're creating LEAN muscle by using your own body weight!
This workout has 2 levels, so you can start with level one and work your way up to level two. I've been doing this DVD, along with her other workout DVDs for years and bottom line....they work!
She does do a couple of bonus moves in level two that I'd never fully been able to do...until last week! All of a sudden I was finally able to do a pose called "crow"...I need to work on getting my knees up on my elbows next, but this is a start! It's exciting to see yourself improve by putting in the hard work! I encourage you to give it a try and I hope you love it. It's a great way to add some yoga to your workouts without having to go to a class and feeling like you have no idea what you're doing;) I'll leave you with a pic of me finally getting my feet off the ground in "crow"!
