This month I'm going to give Jillian Michaels' Yoga Meltdown a go. I bought the DVD at the beginning of May, but I haven't gotten around to trying it yet because I did the Irish Dancing in May, and then the Iai Battojustu in June, but since I have no ideas for July, I decided to have a go.
I'm really unsure about what to expect. I've got relative experience with yoga, but I've used it more as a means to overcome PMS and other unpleasant things, not as an exercise. And to be honest, I'm sceptical that yoga could even really be a workout, but I'm quite willing to be proven wrong. It's Jillian Michaels, afterall, and I'm certain she wouldn't be plugging yoga if it wasn't any good, and given how she works, I'm sure she's found a way to make it effective.
There are two levels to the meltdown, level 1 and level 2 (I bet you didn't see that coming) and they're both 30 minutes long. Unlike the 30 Day Shred, there's not really any sort of time frame to put on it, you just move on when you feel ready. Assuming level 1 is doable (and I don't expect it to be, necessarily), I'll move on to level 2 on the 16th and give each level two and a half weeks.
As always, I'll update after two weeks - or on the 16th if I am moving onto level 2 after 2.5 weeks - and let you know if it is as good as I'm hoping, or better than I expect.
