Certified instructor description:
Hollywood's hottest yoga trainer to the stars, Mark Blanchard, leads a dynamic and powerful workout guaranteed to change your body and your perception of yoga. This upbeat, make-you-sweat DVD series is divided into three separate volumes that will help you lose weight, increase energy and longevity, and firm up your body. Each DVD showcases a different, invigorating workout, containing 60 minutes of high energy, flowing, standing postures followed by 30 minutes of abdominal training, balance poses and deep cool down stretches.
Perform each volume by itself or use the three exhilarating routines, performed in rotation, to continue to challenge your body and mind with a variety of strengthening and body sculpting positions, ensuring that your workout regime results don't plateau. You will be focusing on your core muscle groups, like the abdominals, to stabilize and balance yourself for the entire session, so your abs will get one of the best workouts ever! Mark urges all fitness levels to enjoy each DVD, and to make genuine, long-lasting improvements in re-shaping the body and improving mental focus at each individual's own pace.
Mark Blanchard's Progressive Power Yoga series is much more than an exercise regimen; it is an inspiring introduction to modern Ashtanga yoga for students of all levels and ages—the ultimate mind/body workout. Fitness Magazine rated the Progressive Power Yoga three DVD series as “The Top Workout for Yoga” and celebrities from Drew Barrymore through NBA star Steve Smith rave about its results. Each DVD also contains bonus segments demonstrating poses – both beginner and advanced – as well as a Vinyasa practice.
