Certified instructor description:
Not a killer workout. Instead, Cathe offers a straight-forward yoga program with a few Pilates moves and lots of optional modifications. All the poses and sequences are selected to build strength, power, flexibility and balance. The workout begins with basic sun salutations and then progressively builds in intensity (you can really feel your muscles heating up and your heart rate rising). As you get stronger, Cathe makes it easy to maintain the workout's effectiveness with more challenging modifications (e.g. wider hand positions, deeper stretches). Note: Most poses are intermediate level, but a few are more intense (e.g. a "levitation" pose where Cathe lifts her entire body off the ground with her arms). Quiet, new-age-type music. ©2011.
