I originally bought this DVD for mental wellness. After 1 week of use, I felt calmer and became more aware of the importance of using my breath to calm my mind and body. After 2 weeks of use, I noticed that I lost 4 lbs. and was surprised at the small improvement in my flexibility and mental wellness. The added bonus of weight control helped me further commit to this program. In the last 3 weeks Rodney Yee has taught me about the importance of mental and physical wellness. I feel more connected with my body. I'm currently on meds that cause weight gain, and this has been the only physical tool that has provided excellent results in both physical and mental wellness. I can see yoga being a permanent practice in the rest of my life. I knew the benefits of maintaining flexibility for physical wellness, but had never experienced the benefits. Doing Yoga is my personal moment of peace. My life has been forever changed because I understand the connection between mental and physical wellness. I purchased additional products from the Gaiam site and can't wait to engage in their life transforming experiences. Thank you Gaiam family. :-) God bless!!
