Yogini

Yogini is another yoga fusion workout by Ellen Barrett. It is also available for free on YouTube (at least right now it is), which is how I did it this morning. This was a tough workout! For me at least. It is a flowing fusion workout. You never hold any pose longer than 4 counts … Continue reading Yogini

Stretch Sculpt

I have heard a lot about Ellen Barrett but I have never done one of her workouts. So when I came across Stretch Sculpt at the library, I decided to give her a try and see why everyone seems to love her. I also went a step further and did this workout barefoot. I previewed … Continue reading Stretch Sculpt

Gentle Yoga Stretch

Gentle Yoga Stretch is another yoga/flexibility collection from Jessica Smith. Jessica has quite a few of these types of workouts and she does them very well. These are more excellent and thorough yoga practices to add to my collection. I didn't find them as gentle as the title promises but that could be due to … Continue reading Gentle Yoga Stretch

Yoga Fusion Fix

Yoga Fusion Fix is another of Jessica Smith's new releases. This one contains 3 intermediate level yoga practices of varying lengths. Jessica is by herself. All of the workouts are set on a wooden deck with the ocean in the background. I enjoyed all of these yoga practices. The longest one, Strength + Flexibility, was … Continue reading Yoga Fusion Fix

2-Week Turn Around: Cardio

Before my mastectomy I dug out some of the workouts I used while rehabilitating after my heels were crushed 10 years ago. The 2-Week Turn Around workouts were part of my rehab. There are two DVDs--a cardio and a strength DVD. Both DVDs contain multiple short workouts that you can do alone or put them … Continue reading 2-Week Turn Around: Cardio

Element: Yoga for Energy & Relaxation

I am a big fan of Ashley Turner's Element yoga workouts. A blog reader recommended Tamal Dodge's Element yoga workouts, saying they were even better than Ashley's. So I looked them over and stuck two of Tamal's Element DVDs on my Amazon wishlist. I finally got around to trying one and I am so glad … Continue reading Element: Yoga for Energy & Relaxation

JessicaSmithTV: Strong Stretch

Every time I think I have done all of Jessica Smith's YouTube yoga and stretch routines I run across another one. I recently stumbled across Strong Stretch, which was posted 4 years ago. I am not sure how I missed it. The title apparently signifies that you are stretching to work out muscle soreness and … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Strong Stretch
