Initial Impressions: Bob Harper’s Yoga for the Warrior

March 25, 2011 2 comments

Yes, its the last DVD review of the First Inside Out series — I say first because since staring this journey with Bob, he’s released Kettlebell workouts as well which I have tried and loved.  And of course, I’ll have a review of the whole series in another post, but this is the last individual DVD review.  Is there are a surprise I saved Yoga for last?  I know I need to work on my flexibility, but I am probably the most lazy when it comes to working on this aspect in my health than any other (next to sleeping more).   I am a picky yoga vidiot — despite being of Indian origin, my clearly-wound-up-too-tight personality has gotten in the way of be ever fully immersing myself into the yoga culture and thought.  Just too stressed, too type A, I suppose.  So finding an instructor that doesn’t bore me to death or push too many moves that are meant, I dunno, for a performance artist at Cirque Du Soleil, can be a bit of a challenge.  I’m happy to say that Bob really did impress me with his mix of instruction, modifications, and vinyasas.  I doubt this DVD will ever be out of of my collection.
