Certified instructor description: Yoga is an ancient Hindu practice that uses breathing and stretching exercises to prepare the body for the spiritual path. These exercises condition the physical body so that the mind can practice meditation without obstacles. Western society has adopted these exercises as a fitness program. With the desert landscape of Death Valley in the background, premier yoga instructor Rodney Yee has created a workout that shapes and strengthens the abdominal muscles. The 20-minute routine starts with four minutes of conscious breathing, continues with 13 minutes of abdominal yoga poses, and concludes with three minutes of deep relaxation techniques. Some of the poses may be difficult for beginners (e.g. lowering straight legs to the ground), and a rolled blanket is needed for support in angled poses.
