Mother Blogger and The Working Girl are huge fans of yoga. Diagnosed with fibromyalgia last year, Mother Blogger has found that yoga has helped not only her body but also her mind. The Working Girl has recently discovered that exercising with a DVD is about the only time she can fit in a workout. The Pulse Yoga DVD, the Manic Monday giveaway, is a basic yoga routine that introduces the Pulse concept of micro movements within a posture.
Read what the creator of this unique brand of yoga has to say about the routine:
Pulse Yoga is a result of my personal quest to find yoga routines that accomplish much more than other yoga styles. A few years ago I was diagnosed with osteopenia. This is almost osteoporosis, but not quite. I was shocked as I have been practicing yoga for so many years and consider myself to be in very good physical condition. The doctor told me that I needed to do some sort of weight training program. I have never really liked working out in a gym, always preferring yoga. I also did not want to give up precious time allotted to my yoga practice, so I decided to incorporate free weights into my yoga routines.
As a woman in my 50's, I also wanted more toning, strengthening and increased muscle definition, again without using machines in the gym. So, in addition to the free weights, I added micro movements that primarily target areas such as the gluteus muscles, abdominals, upper arms and lower back. These micro movements within the yoga postures are highly effective with results that are noticeable immediately
