Hello y’all! I’m a busy, overworked and overstressed girl. I love going to the gym, but my time to exercise is early morning and *right* after work, where i run, do cardio and take classes. My gym has very nice yoga classes, but they take place several hours after I’m done with working out. I’d love to do yoga at home.
I have the p90x yoga, but I am really not a fan because it’s 90 minutes long, and I feel like it’s more strictly just exercise. Maybe it’s because I did the whole program, I’m biased against Tony Horton doing yoga or something. 🙂 I feel like he’s just sneaking in like 50 pushups in his vinyasas.
So I’m looking for a DVD 60 minutes or less. I’m not a complete beginner(although I have only done yoga at a gym–never been to a studio), and I love that yoga can be a good workout, but I’d like something relaxing as well because I need to calm myself from stress. 🙂
Thanks for any suggestions!

I have this Total Body Yoga DVD with Rodney Yee. I think it’s 60 minutes and its awesome! I think he has a whole series of them.

The Empire Strikes Back (sorry, couldn’t resist after that typo in the title)!
Seriously, I am no help. Sometimes I do yoga from the On Demand stations through Comcast Cable, but other than that, I have no recommendations.

When I first started doing Yoga I did a Karen Voight DVD called Yoga Sculpt. I haven’t done that one in a while but I loved it. I also have done a Biggest Loser version where Bob is the leader. I like that one. He talks a little too much but it flows pretty well. Someone else suggested Rodney Yee. I have bought a DVD of his as well although I don’t have much input because I didn’t even complete one workout (that is nothing against the DVD, just pure laziness on my part)
Your comment about Tony Horton sneaking in pushups with the Vinyasas made me laugh. It is so true. I am starting my second installment of p90x on Monday. I think I miss Tony Horton a little bit. 🙂

I really love the “Body Slim” DVD by Yogaworks. It’s full length and feels like real Yoga, but it’s an OK cardio workout too. I also like Giam’s “Five Day Fit Yoga”. It has five shorter workouts that I like to combine with Cardio.

“The Trainer’s Edge: Long & Lean Yoga With Baron Baptiste” is fun and challenging – I recommend that.

I like the classes from yogadownload.com. If you want something relaxing look at their “Lunar Flow”. It’s one of my favorite relaxing sessions. they also rate their classes from “Ahhhhh” to “You’ll need a towel” so you can find or things too. 🙂

I was coming to reccomend YogaWorks Body Slim, but I see @archielamb beat me to it! Love, love, love that one! It’s on my Time Warner Exercise on Demand channel most of the time, but the DVD is pretty cheap on Amazon, too.

I second (or third) the Yogaworks Bodyslim DVD. It’s really good! I tried the Jillian Micheals Yoga dvd and it’s a little like the P90x yoga but much shorter, so the vinyasa pushups are more bareable. And yogajournal.com has some free video podcasts that you can download.

I like the Biggest Loser Yoga workout. It’s fabulous!! I feel like I get such a good workout, but yet am SO relaxed. Bob Harper is the main instructor, and I love it. There are 3 levels of difficulty, and I only have done the first one, along with the warm up and cool down. It’s just long enough and it’s nice that the people in the background aren’t perfect models who know the moves perfectly…. it feels more like a yoga class to me.

I love Bethany Frankel’s Yoga by Bethany! It’s amazing and I have noticed the changes in my body after two weeks and she cracks me up!!!
