Beginning Yoga with Chrissy Carter features three 20-minute routines that can be done individually or combined for a complete 60 minute program. The practices include:
- Connect (20 minutes) – Transition from a hectic day to a calm inner focus. This practice begins with the concept of linking breath to movement as Carter introduces fundamental yoga poses and mini sequences.
- Energize (20 minutes) – Builds on skills acquired in the first program and introduces sun salutations and other sequences. The goal of this program is to energize, detoxify, and increase flexibility, and as the flow increases, so will the calorie burn.
- Strengthen (20 minutes) – Build the strength necessary to achieve more challenging poses as Carter takes viewers through shoulder openers, preps for inversions and focused core work, increasing strength and confidence to be prepared for the day.
Beginning Yoga with Chrissy Carter has an approximate runtime of 60 minutes and a suggested retail price of $14.98. The DVD will be available beginning December 4, 2012 in stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com.
