Certified instructor description:
Synchronized, very programmed movements that integrate yoga, muscle toning and Pilates-style mat routines. Designed to sculpt the body from the “inside out,” you'll also improve flexibility and calm your mind. By linking the breath with the movements and the movements with the music, you'll reach a depth and intensity that really maximizes results. Karen carefully engages several muscle groups at one time, so you're often strengthening one set as you stretch the other. Many of the poses are classic yoga, but Karen's non-mystical approach makes them easy to understand (e.g. “imagine a wall behind you …”). An IDEA Instructor of the Year, her gentle voice precisely matches this video's soothing music and tranquil set. A yoga “sticky mat” is suggested. ©1999.
