Movie Reviews

A different kind of abs workout--no crunches necessary!
Beth Cholette | Upstate NY USA | 05/24/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video was my very first introduction to yoga; I had absolutely NO experience with yoga prior to trying this practice. Although it doesn't involve many traditional yoga poses, the exercises flow together in a way that is unique to yoga. In fact, when I used the video for the first time, I wasn't quite sure when the warm-up ended and the "real" workout began--the transition was that smooth and gentle.

The workout begins in a seated position and focuses on breathing, then moves on to hands and knees for a back stretch (Cat pose). The majority of the workout is performed lying on your back, where you will do simple yet challenging leg extensions and twists to target the abdominal area. After a quick rise to a standing position, the workout returns to the floor to end with lying relaxation poses.

Although the moves become gradually more difficult, I think that most beginners will be able to perform the majority of this workout. I definitely believe that this workout has helped me to develop stronger abs). Rodney Yee is a wonderful instructor--he has a calming voice, his instructions are clear and precise, and he is not overly "new age-y." I would definitely recommend this video for anyone looking to thoroughly exercise their abdominals without doing crunches for a change."
Great place to begin getting in shape!

"This is not just good for those new to yoga, but those just beginning to get in shape as well. After my c-sections I would not exercise my abs for several months, despite an okay from doctors. When I finally felt comfortable enough to start working them again, this is where I started. My entire core was weak, and it was more than challenging, although easy to stick with as the poses are mostly seated. He gently guides you through proper breathing during the exercises, and it really helps you to keep going. Once it no longer challenges you it is time to move on to a workout not intended for beginners."
One of the best

"This is one of the best yoga videos I've ever done. I've taken a few classes and used several videos, but this was my first and remains one of the best. It doesn't use a lot of typical yoga poses, but the "feel" of yoga is definitely there. It's great for beginners or even intermediates - which I consider myself. You will definitely have sore abs after your first time using it, but it's not boring like doing tons of crunches. The breathing and relaxation techniques at the beginning and end are great, also. You get to start slowly, build to the toughest moves, then wind down and relax at the end. Highly recommended."
Great workout for BEGINNERS
D.M.K | Las Vegas, Nevada United States | 10/21/2006

"I am amazed that the reviewer Cheryl is busy saying how weak the workout is and is only suitable for "beginners" Maybe Cheryl needs remedial reading before writing reviews. The title is Abs Yoga for BEGINNERS" Its a good workout, I ve used it off and on for years and it will tighten up you abs after some regular use."
