Yoga For Stress Relief & Flexibility Review
What You Should Know
Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility is an Element DVD instructed by Ashley Turner. The DVD includes two yoga workouts for less than $13. The workout is not designed to replace cardio or strength workouts for fitness and weight loss. Instead, it is designed to relax the body to increase flexibility and reduce stress. The body tends to tighten during times of stress, which can cause pain leading to more stress. Emotional eaters may not find the workout boosts metabolism, but reducing stress may decrease the desire to overeat and snack often – two major reasons for plateaus and weight gain while dieting.

Yoga DVD designed for relaxation.
There is no official website for the Element: Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility DVD, but information is provided through Amazon.com where the DVD is sold. Nearly 100-percent of the feedback on the DVD is positive. The main reason for the positive feedback is the fact that the DVD is not created for fitness.
Relaxation is important during off days from cardio and strength training. While some dieters may turn up their nose at doing another workout DVD on an off day, the program is not an intense workout. Dieters are not elevating heart rate. As a matter of fact, the idea is to relax and reduce heart rate.
Limited flexibility can reduce range of motion and increase the risk of painful exercise. Increasing flexibility is simple with regular stretching. Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility provides that stretching and much more. The DVD starts at the top of the body with relaxation breathing techniques and neck stretches. The movements slowly creep down and eventually the entire body is loose and relaxed. The gentle music and calming scenery increase the effect of the yoga poses.

There needs to be a careful balance between exercise, diet and relaxation during weight loss. Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility helps elongate muscles and relaxes mind and body. This is the ideal workout for off days from the gym, but it is not one a dieter can use on a regular basis to increase metabolism and weight loss. Without a diet plan, the dieter must find a healthy diet to lose weight. Yoga may be difficult for some dieters, especially if they are not familiar with yoga poses.
