Review of Trudie Styler's Warrior Yoga

Although I don’t mind a yoga workout that is challenging for my fitness level, I also certainly don’t mind one that is relaxing at the same time!
   Such is the case with Trudie Styler's Warrior Yoga, a calming, easy-to-follow yoga routine that has the warrior series of poses at its core.
   Although I feel relaxed and centered while doing the DVD, beads of sweat always form on my forehead and neck.
   And although the main routine is 50 minutes, it positively flies by.
   James D’Silva, Styler’s personal trainer, designed the routine and leads it along with Styler.
   Although the DVD is called Warrior Yoga, and there are definitely warrior poses to be found, they don’t dominate.
   There are plenty of other poses in between, including pigeon, tree and cobra. I never feel “warriored out” by the time the routine is over.
   Like Styler’s other three DVDs currently available from Gaiam, Warrior Yoga is filmed on the estate of the Tuscan villa she owns with her husband, Sting.
   The incredible background and lovely accompanying music from Sting’s classical album, Songs from the Labyrinth, adds to the calming ambience of the routine.
   The DVD also contains an express 25-minute warrior yoga workout.

Warrior One is such a popular pose, but not everybody does it correctly. There are ways to make hands-on adjustments so everyone can succeed in this pose. I found Leeann Carey has a free yoga video on exactly how to do this.
