Pulse Yoga DVDs Review and Giveaway

Winner Comment #1 San8Kidz4me said - Would like to try the Capri Leggings, they look very comfy to work out in.




Up until the last couple of years I always thought that yoga was exercise for those who wanted to be able to claim that they "worked-out" but didn't really have to do anything. Boy was I wrong! I have since learned that not only is it a great workout, but has other benefits as well. I've had back pain for several years and it turns out that some of the yoga poses are great at relieving the pain. Now I admit that I am no yoga enthusiast. In fact, my entire experience with yoga has been on the Nintendo Wii (which I'm sure isn't even actual yoga), but even that has been beneficial. So, when my wife said that we were going to be trying out the Pulse Yoga DVDs I thought it was great.


Pulse Yoga is slightly different because it not only includes the traditional poses, but incorporates micro movements within each pose. The set of Pulse Yoga DVDs include three routines with an additional Express routine. As a family we tried the Express video which was a combination of Yoga and Pilates. It was only a half hour workout, but I was definitely feeling it just a few minutes in. My daughters even did the movements along with the video.


The other three videos feature a basic routine, a routine designed for balance and tone, and one for stamina and strength. This means that whatever your exercise goals are, there's a routine that could be a really effective part of your exercise program. If you haven't tried it yet, I recommend you give it a shot.

To Buy - Each DVD Retails for 14.99, or you can get all 3 for just $35.

    I love the Capri Leggings! I've been wanting a tighter pair of capri's for doing yoga because of how hot it gets, but yet I still like the extra grip they give me compared to shorts when doing more intense poses with your feet of the ground! Thanks for the great giveaway!
