Pulse Yoga Review

Friday, November 13, 2009


Did you know that during the holiday season is when most people put on the most weight. The thought of this is just amazing to me, but I can honestly see how this happens. Most people eat when they get together. Be is a full out meal or simply appetizers (they add up quick). So why not start doing a program that is going to help you stay in shape over the holidays and be a great kick-off for those of you that make New Year Resolutions.

I know we are all pushed for time, but how many of you have 60 minutes a day to devote to working out? It sounds like a small time frame and I understand that it is hard to get 60 minutes to yourself, but don't we all as parents owe that little amount of time to help us better our overall health? If not for us, then for our kids.

60 minutes is all it takes to do a workout with Pulse Yoga. This DVD is absolutely amazing and let say that when you finish your 60 minutes, you feel absolutely amazing! I will admit that this DVD is not just a walk in the part. It is challenging but it isn't overly hard. Trust me when I say that I am not the best person out there when it comes to yoga and I was able to complete this workout the first time without any stops. But the challenge of the moves is really what kept me motivated.

Pulse Yoga is a new concept, marrying the best elements and diciplines of Pilates, Weight Training, and Yoga into one structured class session. It is designed to help build strength, balance and flexibility. The combination that certified fitness instructor Argie Tang teaches makes this workout what it is!

What is involved in the Pulse Yoga Basic?

Here is a little clip from the video:






A basic yoga routine that introduces the Pulse concept of micro movements within a posture. Key areas such as abdominal, lower back and gluteous muscles are targeted. Alternating right/left pulse movements with free weights define and sculpt the upper body.
  • Apply the use of free weights in novel ways to basic yoga postures
  • Strengthen and tone key areas such as the abdominals, lower back upper arms and gluteus
  • Teach core awareness
  • Stretch chronically tight areas such as the hamstrings and hip flexors
WIN,WIN,WIN

It was invented after the creator was told that she needed a weight training routine due to health problems, but she didn't want to give up yoga.

  20. Linda K said...

    I addition to the free weights, she added micro movements that primarily target areas such as the gluteus muscles, abdominals, upper arms and lower back. These micro movements within the yoga postures are highly effective with results that are noticeable immediately.

    I think Argie's story about how she developed the Pulse Yoga "micromovements" approach is interesting. Anyone who has taught over 15,000 yoga classes knows what she's talking about! And I appreciate her mission to combine free weights with a yoga practice so that neither workout is cut short. Would LOVE to try this!!
