Pushed for time but still want to work out? Then all you need is ten minutes to do one of six yoga-based exercise routines and seven guided relaxations. This online program can be accessed at anytime via your phone or computer. So do a relaxation while you are waiting for the kids at school pick-up. Try the Greet the Day routine when you wake (while it’s still quiet and calm!). Or you can also purchase the DVD.
