Round 2 / Day 41: P90X Yoga X

Having not done yoga in almost two months (other than taking a class at Canyon Ranch), I'd almost forgotten how much I enjoy it. The moving asanas gave me a nice burn in my legs and arms, the stretches felt great, and  the balance poses were a welcome challenge. And with the addition of newly-purchased mirrors in our Super-Deluxe Home Fitness Compound (better known as our garage), I was finally able to check out my form and make some much-needed corrections.

BUT: At over an hour-and-a-half, this DVD's still too damn long. I may need to split this routine into two separate workouts: One 50-minute ashtanga yoga session, and one 45-minute session focused on balance poses and stretches. (Alternatively, I could suck it up and buy the Tony Horton One-on-One "Fountain of Youth" DVD, which many P90Xers have used as a shorter substitute for Yoga X.)
