Jane Fonda recently released her newest workout video, Jane Fonda PrimeTime AM/PM Yoga for Beginners,” featuring short yoga workouts to be done in the morning and evening.
“This is a yoga DVD for beginners and older people, who have to move slower and can’t turn themselves into pretzels like I used to be able to do,” the 74-year-old actress told The Los Angeles Times in an interview. “I wanted to make a video that I could do with a couple of 10-minute segments for the morning and a couple for the afternoon.”
The DVD features three AM workouts to energize, and two PM workouts to help viewers relax and relive tension and stress.
The sessions include:
AM: Abs & Back – Helps to strengthen and tighten the core to stabilize and support the lower back
AM: Energy – Helps to invigorate and get ready for the day ahead with light stretches and yoga poses or asanas.
AM: Strength – This engages the full body through yoga combined with weight training.
PM: Mobility – Using a chair, this session will help to relax and relieve stress.
PM: Relaxation – Stretching the core, shoulders, hip, back and legs, this also helps to release tension.
BONUS: A 5-minute session of stability and posture exercise to improve balance.
“A lot of the DVDs that are out there are just too hard,” Fonda told the LA Times. “In fact, the demographic that I’m addressing is left out of most exercise programs that are put out on DVDs these days. I would say the No. 1 most important thing for healthy aging is to stay physically active, and that’s why I decided to make a video for boomers.”
