Yoga is a wonderful way to help you keep fit, relieve stress, and ease your everyday experiences. Filmed on a beautifully serene location overlooking the Pacific Ocean, these two 30-minute programs will help you realize all the benefits of yoga by unveiling a new connection between your body and mind. The AM sequence enhances basic poses with gentle repetitions to invigorate, tone, and streamline your body while reconnecting to your breathing in a new way every time you practice.

Certified instructor description:
A smooth-flowing series of classic yoga poses filmed in a flower-filled, oceanside setting. You'll begin your day with the AM workout; it includes energizing standing moves along with gentle reminders to mindfully plan your day. You'll end with the PM segment; it calms your body with a blend of elongation, stretch and relaxation poses. The moves are all yoga classics like warrior, down dog and sun salutation. Elena Brower's detailed instruction really helps you internalize the positions. She demos each pose while her calm, voiceover cuing carefully describes what you'll be doing (and feeling).
