Trouble Zones29 Aug, 2014 By: Angelique Flores
The belly, booty and thighs are often named as trouble areas for women, especially as we get older. We want a flat tummy, a tight and lifted booty, and firm and sculpted thighs, right?
For those who choose yoga to get their sweat on, there are only a few yoga DVDs that target those trouble zones. And you have to pick just one among those zones. But Chrissy Carter has a new DVD that targets all three.
Gaiam releases her new Yoga for Belly, Butt, and Thighs Sept. 2 on DVD for $14.98. The program will also be available on iTunes.
The DVD features three practices — at about 20 minutes each — to target each area.
The Belly segment targets the abs, while the Butt segment helps sculpt the glutes as well as the hamstrings and hips, which help boost the gluteal muscles. The Thighs section help tone both the quads and hamstring muscles.
There’s also a 15-minute Complete Core practice that combines various poses from the three practices along with new poses to target the abs and lower back. After doing this practice just once, my tight, achy, sore back felt great for days.
Carter gives clear and easy to follow instruction. Her poses are not complex, but they’re still challenging and effective, and you can feel your muscles working while doing the exercises.
Gaiam worked with Carter to develop a series of practices that combine complex poses and deep breathing exercises with a workout to tone muscles, eliminate fat, build body awareness and awaken core muscles.
