    I must have 10 different Abs tapes, but this one is definitely my favorite. It serves as an excellent counterbalance to the typical crunch-type abs workout, plus has all the added benefits of yoga. The workout part of the tape is a little under 25 minutes, and part of the tape is basically ab-focused meditation (but it’s not flaky for those who are a little intimidated by yoga’s spiritual side). The rest is gentle, yet tough abs work which will be unlike anything you’ve ever done before. The best part is, it works. Your abs will feel terrific and you will feel great because you have completed some pretty challenging poses. For some reason, I don’t know if it’s true, I feel that this tape works out ab muscles that those traditional tapes just don’t get to. Maybe it’s because most of the poses are isometric, but whatever it is, I would recommend this tape to anyone curious about yoga and interested in toning their abs.

    ABSolutely A Good Workout, April 20, 2001

    I was a little hesitant to try this videotape. As we all know yoga is intended to be exercise for the mind and body. I am always looking for a good ab workout but was not looking for an “Oprah-remember-my-spirit” type program (though ironically I became aware of Rodney Yee’s tape on the “Queen Midas’” daytime talk show). Much to my surprise, this is quite a good and quick workout. Having done the tape several times a week, I already feel and see improvements in that pesky region of the body. What I found different (and liked!) about this workout was that I did not have to do seemingly endless and boring repititions of crunches or feel the proverbial “burn.” But no need to worry, if you are anything like me, your ab muscles will definitely tell you that they are being worked out. I feel a good muscle tension afterwards (and okay sometimes even some mild soreness the next day).

    A word of caution for other yoga “newbies.” It will take some time to get up to speed moving between and doing the series of poses. After a dozen times or so, I think I have got it down — but admittedly still have a mental block with keeping up with Yee’s breathing inhalation/exhalation instructions. As others have noted, skip the annoying ads in the beginning of the tape. I simply have queued the tape to the start of the workout and rewind it back to that point each time.

    I will probably not be a “spiritual” yoga convert (my abs don’t feel like the “deep soft belly of the dunes” that Yee soothingly tells me each time) but so far I am a fan of this challenging, yet relaxing, program. I still find myself surprised that the workout is over so quickly (approximately 20 minutes)– that is something I have certainly never experienced with an ab workout.

    I love Rodney Yee and find all the videos of his in my collection to be easy to follow, which is most important in a video. I like this one because it’s relatively short yet provides a complete ab workout. When you’re finished, you know you’ve worked your abs. I have fibromyalgia and am not the most flexible person in the world. But with the help of consistant exercise, I’m finding I’m beginning to get more flexible. This video is beautifully done and very easy to follow. So it’s good for beginners. At the same time, it’s challenging enough for those who have exercised and even done yoga for some time. Why do more than necessary to get to your goals? I am not crazy about the advertisements that preceed the program. I think if you pay for a video you should just get what you pay for and not have to sit through ads. But, of course, one can simply fast forward, which is what I do. I highly recommend this video. And for those who have a bad back, I recommend Rodney’s yoga for the back, also a short twenty minute program. Easy to follow and fast. Both videos really work.
