I decided to dip my toe into the yoga pond with an at-home DVD. I wanted an inexpensive way to try total body conditioning and stretching. Enter Jillian Michaels' Yoga Meltdown, a 30 minute power yoga routine that is meant to challenge your physical fitness and sculpt your entire body. Oh boy!
Yoga DVD? Check!
Yoga mat? Check!
Yoga cat? Check?
The DVD was pretty tough (it is Jillian Michaels after all) and not what I expected from yoga at all. Yes we did downward dog and sun salutations but it was really fast paced and I broke an obvious sweat.
I'll definitely do it again and work up to level 2 but if I am looking for a meditation I'm going to have to keep looking.
Overall, today's rest day was really low-key and great; yoga, reading The Happiness Project and a mid afternoon nap. I'm gearing up for a 10 mile run with Cynthia tomorrow so I have another relaxing night on deck.
I love rest days. So does the cat.
So tell me, do you practice yoga? Have you ever tried a yoga DVD?
