After months of hibernating from this cold winter, I thought it was time to work on my New Year's resolution of taking better care of myself by doing more workout videos. I chose Perfect in Ten Yoga because as a busy mom of one, my life is centered around my son and 10 quality minutes are about all I can spare!!
There are five segments to this video ranging from 10-13 minutes with the categories of:
1. Awaken and Energize
2. Tone and Strengthen
3. Back Relief and Flexibility
4. De-Stress and Let Go
5. Guided Deep Relaxation
Each of these workouts actually made me sweat after 10 minutes and that surprised me and each of the segments targets exactly what they say they will! I also find that the more I do the workouts, the more flexible I am becoming! I am definitely not pretzel looking flexible but I can bend deeper without saying "ouch"!
The instructor Susan Grant has such a calming and soothing voice and she shows modified as well as advanced positions.
If you had asked me a few years ago what my goal in working out would be, I would have said to acquire washboard abs and now that I have "matured", my goal is to be more empowered to have a strong and flexible body as well as alleviating anxiety and stress in my mind. Since those goals are more realistic, surprisingly enough, a few rungs on the washboard have magically appeared!
I highly recommened this video for those of you who are pressed for time and want to do yoga!
