Certified instructor description:
These fast-paced, yoga-inspired moves all have a distinct muscle-toning emphasis. No yoga “spirituality” here — Bob Harper keeps the focus on body-changing results (you'll be sweating, just like the TV show contestants on this DVD). The video has three levels — you can start with a basic 34-minute workout or advance to the 51 or 61-minute pre-programmed options. The first section is classic yoga. The second integrates core-targeted Pilates moves. The third uses dumbbells for maximum intensity (e.g. bicep curls during a Warrior pose). Detailed instruction and no-nonsense encouragement. Requires 1 to 5 lb. dumbbells; a medicine ball is optional. ©2008.
