Flat Belly Yoga Overview
The right yoga workout done regularly will improve your strength, increase your flexibility, brighten your mood, and help you to de-stress. The wrong workout will not enable you to experience all of these benefits, and it can put you at risk of injury. With this in mind, the Flat Belly Yoga DVD was designed to make it easy for you to customize your sessions to suit your comfort and fitness level.
You can choose to do either a 15-minute or a 30-minute core workout, both of which contain variations. If a pose feels painful or very uncomfortable, experiment with the many variations, and you will find the perfect routine for your body.
When you are ready for a greater challenge, adding the 10-minute Core + Belly Blast segment to your routine will enable you to sculpt your abs and drop inches even faster.
The Flat Belly Yoga No Crunch Workout DVD comes with a book containing a Four-Day Jump Start program. The Four Day Jump Start will ease you into the program and prepare you for the coming 28 days.
The book also features tips that will help you to maximize your weight loss and avoid common workout injuries, and there are testimonials from people who have participated in the program.
