Roxy Shahidi, TV soap actress (Leyla from "Emmerdale") and certified yoga instructor proudly presents AM/PM Yoga for Beginners. Designed to provide an energising boost to your morning and a relaxing, wind-down in the evening, AM/PM Yoga for Beginners is set to revolutionise the way many of us approach yoga.
Modern life has become so hectic and stressful that there’s often little time to invigorate and nurture
ourselves. AM/PM Yoga for Beginners with Roxy Shahidi is designed to help everyone start and finish their day in a balanced state of well-being.
The ‘AM’ practices awaken and energise the body. By carving out a little time each morning, you can enliven your day and boost your energy levels.
The AM programme consists of the following practices:
- Energising Breath (7 mins)
- Gentle Awakening Flow (20 mins)
- Invigorating Flow (25 mins)
The ‘PM’ practices will help you relax, unwind and relieve stress and tension, helping you get a good night’s rest and reverse the damage caused by our fastpaced lives, hunched over a computer.
The PM programme consists of the following practices:
- Wind-Down Relaxation (12mins)
- Relaxation (20 mins)
- Shavasana (6 mins)
Roxy says “My inspiration for choreographing this DVD was to make something that’s accessible to everyone, with options for various abilities, but that are also still physically challenging. Many of the postures and sequences in this beginner’s programme are classic ones you’ll find in many yoga classes, so they will provide a great foundation. The routines are split up into two manageable chunks so you can fit it around a busy schedule or play it as a whole for a more intensive practice. AM/PM Yoga for Beginners is my favourite DVD so far because it’s so accessible and yet still really challenging. I just really like it and I still practice these sequences to this day. No matter how experienced you are, it’s good to go back to your roots – the foundations of yoga, to re-address and re-align yourself. There’s no such thing as the perfect posture.”
