Yin Yoga Snack for Heart & Hips

Yin Yoga Snack for Heart & Hips is another short Yin Yoga practice that focuses on the chest, upper back and hips. This one was more what I expected from Yin Yoga. I was able to hold these poses for the entire period with no discomfort. The biggest problem for me was the rolled up … Continue reading Yin Yoga Snack for Heart & Hips

Yin Yoga Snack for Chest, Shoulders & Upper Back Release

This morning I did an actual Yin Yoga workout. This workout snack consists of primarily two poses that you hold for a long time. Since I have chronic shoulder pain, I thought this one was a good one to start with. It did not feel as good as I expected it to. It was actually … Continue reading Yin Yoga Snack for Chest, Shoulders & Upper Back Release

Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Upper

Warm & Stretch: Upper is another nice dynamic flexibility workout from Linda Wooldridge. Just like the other two Warm & Stretch workouts (Standing and Ball), Linda starts with some very active dynamic flexibility movements to get you warmed up. Since this is entirely upper body focused the entire workout is done on a mat. This … Continue reading Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Upper

Barlates: Energy Flow/Band

Energy Flow: Band is another workout in Linda Wooldridge's Energy Flow Series. I love, love, love all of these flowing workouts! I pretty much love everything Linda creates, but these flowing metabolic fusion workouts are my absolute favorites. This one, as the title suggests, uses the band. I felt like the focus was primarily on … Continue reading Barlates: Energy Flow/Band

Walk at Home: 5 Day Slim Down

5 Day Slim Down is the last Leslie Sansone DVD I will be reviewing here. I bought 5 of her DVDs for $1 each at the yearly library sale and, now that I've done them all, I doubt I will purchase more--even if there are a bunch of new-to-me ones for $1 at the next … Continue reading Walk at Home: 5 Day Slim Down

Ultimate 5 Day Walk Plan

Ultimate 5 Day Walk Plan is another Leslie Sansone DVD I got for $1 at the yearly library sale. Its a pretty neat concept. The DVD contains 5 one mile walks that she labels with colors (blue, yellow, green, purple and red), plus it contains 4 very short and basic strength segments (abs, arms, legs, … Continue reading Ultimate 5 Day Walk Plan

Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Sculpt

This workout was tougher than I thought it would be! I love the length. At 25 minutes it is perfect to use to finish off workouts that are in the 30-40 minute range. This morning I used it to finish off another one of Linda Wooldridge's wonderful fusion workouts: Energy Flow: Sculpt. That one worked … Continue reading Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Sculpt

Barlates: Energy Flow/Sculpt

Another excellent workout in Linda Wooldridge's Flow series. This one is part of the Energy Flow collection. The title of this one is Sculpt and I feel that is a pretty accurate title. Though she only uses one 5 pound dumbbell, she still works you muscles hard. Unfortunately, I am still limited to lifting no … Continue reading Barlates: Energy Flow/Sculpt
