P90X’s Yoga X
P90X is an incredibly famous and successful at-home workout program.

I didn’t start P90X because I was looking for a great yoga class. However, four days into my first try at doing the 90-day fitness-fest called P90X, I encountered a yoga DVD called Yoga X. And I was impressed.

Here’s the thing–I’m not recommending that you pick up the entire P90X program just to get your hands on Yoga X. That would be silly. There are so many other perfectly fantastic yoga DVDs on the market that there’s no reason to buy a 13-DVD mammoth fitness program just to obtain Yoga X.

On the other hand, I will say that Yoga X is an incredibly great yoga series. Every time I do it, I feel totally used up, stretched, pushed to my limits and high on life.

Tony Horton is the master of ceremonies of P90X. While his brash and over-the-top personality works well for the other P90X routines (which generally involve lots of push-ups, pull-ups, lunges and squats), I was pleasantly surprised by his tone and demeanor during Yoga X. He comes across as a genuinely solid yoga teacher.

Most of the yoga DVDs I usually go through last about an hour at the maximum. So I was daunted by the 90-minute length of Yoga X the first time I cued it up. However, the time really goes by quickly. After the surprisingly intense initial phase of warmup poses, there’s a really challenging balance sequence that I’m still trying to master.

Toward the end, there’s a great sequence of yoga poses that target the abs and core muscle groups. Your abs might hate this sequence in the moment, but I’m always feeling really good and ready for more an hour after completing Yoga X.

If you are interested in yoga classes on DVD and you’re curious, I’d definitely recommend that you figure out a way to get your hands on a copy of Yoga X. In fact, I wholeheartedly recommend P90X–it’s a fantastic program that will help you get into the best shape of your life. It isn’t easy, and it is most definitely relentless, but it’s incredibly well done.

Yoga X stands proudly within the overall P90X program. Find a friend who has a copy of P90X and give it a spin, or just go for it and pick up your own copy of P90X.
