AM: Energizing Flow (30 Minutes) - This energizing series is the perfect way to start your day, or to boost your energy anytime. Develop strength and functional flexibility from head to toe with this series of stamina building poses and exercises.
PM: Relaxing Flow (30 Minutes) - Wind down from a hectic day and stretch out stress and soreness with this relaxing series of yoga postures that incorporate a pillow and a beach towel (or yoga strap) to gently assist your body into deeper stretches to help improve range of motion and overall flexibility.
Feel free to alternate between the two practices each day or add them both into your daily routine. Listen to your body to find the perfect balance for your schedule and needs.

The Yoga Beginner's Bible: Top 63 Illustrated Poses for Weight Loss, Stress Relief and Inner Peace (Paperback)
"The Yoga Beginner's Bible: Top 63 Illustrated Poses for Weight Loss, Stress Relief and Inner Peace by Tai Morello is a surprisingly comprehensive book on yoga poses. But more than simply a list of poses, it includes excellent, clear graphics of a person doing each pose. In addition, it includes a lot of background information, tips on yoga practice, and information on making yoga a habit and a mainstay in your daily routine. There are sections for everything from youthfulness to weight loss to relaxation. There are yoga poses that are best for each of these topics.
Another important principle in yoga is proper breathing. This is also covered with instructions on several special breathing exercises. As a bonus, there is even a group of MP3 file downloads that you can use as guided meditations. Guided meditations are great way to get started meditating. And meditation is a perfect accompaniment to yoga. Both are intended to enhance your life by lowering your stress level, a common cause of many diseases.
When yoga came to the USA in the early 20th century, some thought of it as "that crazy Indian philosophy," but some thought it was wonderful. What has stuck with the USA audience is the physical aspects of yoga. But if you can't get to a class, and don't have a friend who can guide you, this book would be the one to buy for guidance. Poses, or asanas, can be dangerous, so be sure to read all of the safety information and follow correct techniques in The Yoga Beginner's Bible by Tai Morello." Mary C .
