A.M./P.M. Yoga for Beginners into the DVD
player and settled in for a workout. I admit it, I was not a happy camper:

The DVD comes with two workouts you ideally do in one
day—the a.m. section in the morning to energize you, the p.m. section in the
afternoon or evening to relax you. The
a.m. workout is led by acclaimed yoga instructor Rodney Yee—on the beach,
natch. Once I got into the groove, I felt my body start to throw off the
sleepiness, loosen up and (shocker of shockers) wake up. The moves were easy to follow and didn’t
leave me feeling like an inflexible goofball doing silly things at the crack of
dawn. And by the time it was over, I felt really good about myself and ready to
conquer the day. Who can say no to a li’l dose of carpe diem?
Not I, apparently, because as soon as I got home that
evening, I stretched back out on the floor for round 2, a p.m. yoga session led
by Patricia Walden. As soon as I started focusing on my breathing, I noticed
the stress leaving my body—ahh. Whether it’s a long day at work, a fight with
my parents or simply the rigors of everyday life, I think this is one I’ll be
coming back to. It’s easy, it’s paced slowly and each workout is under 30
minutes, so it’s easy to squeeze in to my daily routine.
