Create a customized yoga routine with Rodney Yee.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Rodney Yee is well known for his Gaiam Yoga videos, and this video is sure not to disappoint his fans. Gaiam Ultimate Power Yoga contains five workouts on one DVD. You can mix and match these workouts to create the perfect routine for you.

The workouts are: - Power Foundation (15 mins) - Strengthening Sun Salutations (20 mins) - Sculpting Standing Poses (20 mins) - Broadening Back Bends (20 mins) - Ultimate Power Restoration (10 mins)

Each workout targets a different part of your body, from your core to your back to all over strengthening to relaxation to muscle sculpting. By alternating which routines you do and in which order, you will keep your muscles guessing which move is next.

Although having a basic understanding of yoga is beneficial when following these workouts, it is not necessary. Rodney gives detailed descriptions of each pose, which allows you to not stare at the television screen during the entire workout. These workouts can be challenging at first, but with time and practice, most users should find them enjoyable and be able to complete the workouts.

PRO
  • Plenty of variety to spice up your routine
  • Short workouts make it easy to exercise at any time
  • Rodney Yee gives great instructions for poses
CON
  • May be too easy for advanced yoga practitioners
  • Some poses seem to drag on for too long while others feel rushed
DIET and NUTRITION

Rodney does not address diet and nutrition concerns in this video.

EXERCISE

Experts recommend 30-minutes of exercise, five times a week. You can mix and match the workouts on this video to meet this recommendation.

CONCLUSION

Like most of Rodney's videos, this one is a great way to practice yoga and reap both the mental and physical benefits of the exercise.

Gaiam Ultimate Power Yoga is different from Rodney's other videos because it allows you to customize your workout by selecting which of the five routines on the DVD to follow. The five routines all serve different purposes, so if you combine them all, you will get a complete body workout. Alternatively, you can pick which areas to focus on and alternate workouts, which will help the video from becoming too repetitive.

This is a great video for anyone who like Rodney's other videos or wants to be able to customize their own yoga routines.
