Recs 20-40 min Kundalini Yoga Raviana or other (weight fat loss detox hormone energy

I have pretty much all the Raviana kundalini yoga dvds but never do them because I'm currently trying to finish Jillian Michaels BodyShred and also just added in some barre and Ballet Beautiful.

In general, I don't have time for a full yoga session so was wondering which are your favorite SEGMENTS for:

-hormone balancing balance
-weight loss fat loss
-detox detoxification purification
-energy

Can make any (kundalini or other recs).

If you have the DVDs with the matrix thingy it's pretty easy to shorten the workouts to 20 to 30 min. Like you, I have most of their workouts, but the ones I do more often are fat free, yoga beauty body, solar power, happy hormones... I don't know, I just grab whichever looks good on any given day and program a workout for the time I have

It sounds like Fat Free, Yoga Cleanse, Yoga Beauty Body and Happy Hormones are exactly what you are looking for. No need to do the entire DVD. Just tune in, do a warmup and one of the sets, relax and you've got a great KY workout in.

RaviAna's Total Tune Up has four short practices on it - that might be worth a look.

I can't remember specific segments without looking at the dvd menus. I'll see if I can come up with anything tonight.

There are a lot of very detailed reviews on Amazon that include the menus. I think a reviewer named "Yoga Gal" posts very thorough ones.

Speaking of specific segments yahoo, I think for me, I can have an opinion today and then it changes when I decide to revisit them. Sometimes the dance section of happy hormones feels real good to me, but some other days I program that segment for my workout and it just doesn't jive great with me so I skip it.

Same thing happened to me with the second set of the original beginners and beyond DVD - the first time I did it I hated it, but I did it a few weeks back and it felt much better... good even. My advice is to pick your DVDs one by one and "explore" one at a time - Like Pat says, you do your tune in, a warm up, a set and then your deep relaxation or a meditation, choosing a different segment when available (warm up 1 one day, warm up 2 the other... something along those likes) I've been doing this and taking notes afterwards and it's been working for me

Please don't hesitate to write us again if you have further questions and be sure to let us know how you are doing.

Warm Regards,
Ana Brett & Ravi Singh

Sherry, can you recommend any specific segments? Thanks.
For the last 3 days, I didn't leave enough time for Kundalini and just wound up not doing it.
