Tia Mowry, of the hit reality show “Tia and Tamera” on the Style Network, recently released two new yoga DVDs with yoga guru Tara Stiles. The goal is to de-stress while also losing weight.
“It’s very energetic …this isn’t a style of yoga where you sit and you talk about it and you take a break and you do another thing … you’re moving for the entire program and you’re engaging your abs, you’re engaging your entire body,” Stiles explains in the video below and on Mowry’s Web site, www.tiamowryyoga.com.
The first DVD is designed to calm the mind and body to release tension, and is called “Tia Mowry’s Calm Yoga with Tara Styles, while the second DVD is “Tia Mowry’s Core Yoga With Tara Styles,” offering more of a fat-burning workout to tone the body, especially the stomach muscles.
“About three years ago, I actually injured my back and I found that yoga just really, really helped … after my pregnancy, I’m not afraid to say I gained 60 pounds, so the first thing I went to was yoga,” Mowry says in the video.
