GAIAM Fit Body Yoga DVD Review and Giveaway

GAIAM is a favorite place of mine to shop online. I love their home, fair trade, gifts, and clearance section the most. The GAIAM philosophy I want to be my own. The Earth is a living entity and we have to show respect to it and to ourselves. I love healthy living and being Eco-friendly. Doing so is an integral part of our survival as a species. This is why I am including GAIAM in my Spring Gift Guide this year. They have a lot of products in their store that are green and fair trade.



I love Yoga. Even though I am not Hindu I love the tranquility of Yoga. It helps me clear my mind of all the worldly junk and meditate on things I need to focus on. I love that after practicing Yoga I feel energized and refreshed. It is so uplifting.

GAIAM let me review one of their newer Yoga DVDs called Fit Body Yoga featuring Gwen Lawrence. It has three 20-minute workouts; 60 minutes total in one DVD: “Lower Body Tone” increases flexibility in the hips and legs while toning thighs and glutes (20 minutes), “Upper Body Blast” opens and elongates shoulders and arms while sculpting the upper body (20 minutes), “Core Definition” tightens and tones the core while strengthening the back (20 minutes). The Upper Body Blast workout I need so desperately. Like the majority of other women I have very little arm strength. This along with the core workout I am going to do more often because after having 5 children my abs need tightened too. This 60-minute workout definitely had me aching afterwards although I haven't done a total body workout in a while. It also includes a bonus 10-minute “Express Toning” workout which exercises all the major muscle groups so you can get your Yoga in even when you are in a hurry to get out the door. Just make sure you are ready to work up a sweat and be a little sore because this is jam packed with a lot of Yoga moves in a short amount of time!

Gwen Lawrence is a celebrity Yoga coach, massage therapist, and practicing fitness professional. She knows her anatomy and body functions well and it shows because there are not a lot of moves that get you into some kind of pretzel that you barley can get into let alone get out of. Gwen is a very good instructor and is down to earth. She combines body-sculpting yoga practices with cutting-edge training techniques. The music in the background of the DVD is relaxing and the production is high quality. The three 20-minute workouts are great by themselves or together for the full body experience. This workout made me feel really great at the end of the whole 60 minutes. It has a great potential of strengthening, toning, and stretching my muscles so I can attain more flexibility and strength. I felt like it was working already. I am really excited to use this DVD more to sculpt, strengthen, and flex my body to its full capability.
