Certified instructor description:
A five-part series carefully formatted in short, goal-focused segments. Rodney and Coleen make learning yoga simple by breaking the concepts down into easy-to-learn pieces. The first workout is a step-by-step introduction to yoga's foundation poses. Then you'll use those moves in a flowing Vinyasa series designed to increase strength and energy. The core program is next. It blends classic centering poses with Pilates and fitness-style toning moves. The "clear it out" workout builds lightness and grace with a medley of rhythmic Sun Salutations. The final segment uses guided meditation and restorative yoga poses to relax your body and calm your mind ("find your deep center and quietness"). Filmed indoors and outside. A yoga strap is optional. ©2011.
