I have recently been on a kick of "fusion" type DVDs, so I thought I'd review a few as a theme.

First, the most "yoga" of the three.

Jillian Michaels – Yoga Meltdown. Includes two thirty-minute routines.

I bought it several weeks ago at Costco, all you Costco shoppers, for about $8.00.

After thinking about this, I would call this a "fusion," because Ms. Michael's approach to yoga has a very strong emphasis on using it as strength training by way of body weight resistance. And she adds cardio. A word of warning to the beginner, yoga postures are used as the tool for body weight resistance, but the postures *are not* taught. I cannot emphasize that enough. If you are newer to yoga, you will want to use an instructional video first, or at the very least watch this video on fast forward, pausing to see how the postures are executed before trying to actually do the workout

Workout content first, DVD review after )
