NEW YORK, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaiam, Inc., the leading distributor of lifestyle media, today announced the release of Yoga for Belly, Butt, and Thighs with Chrissy Carter available digitally and on DVD. Yoga for Belly, Butt, and Thighs was developed to target specific areas of the body through the practice of yoga – the abs, glutes, and thighs – three muscle groups commonly referred to as trouble zones.
For this program, Gaiam worked with Carter to develop a series of practices that combine complex poses and deep breathing exercises with a dynamic workout to firm and tighten muscles, eliminate unwanted fat, build body awareness, and awaken core muscles.
"I wanted to create an accessible, yet effective practice that gives women the tools to uncover their personal best," says Carter. "We all struggle with trouble spots — areas of the body that need to be woken up — regardless of body type. This program offers a targeted yoga regimen that uses mindful movement to achieve results in the belly, butt, and thighs."
Yoga for Belly, Butt, and Thighs features three 20-minute practices, each designed to firm, tighten, and tone a certain area of the body, which can be done separately or together, as well as a 15-minute bonus practice for the core:
- Belly (20 minutes) - A tummy toning workout that starts with groundwork, moving the body through a series of exercises that require the abdominal muscles to hold poses for considerable amounts of time.
- Butt (20 minutes) – A butt sculpting sequence of exercises that starts on all fours, isolating movement at the hip joint to work glutes and hamstring muscles.
- Thighs (20 minutes) - Features thigh tightening exercises that create resistance with slow standing poses that tone and shape the leg muscles.
- Complete Core (15 minutes) - An assortment of poses that combine aspects of the previous workouts with dynamic new poses to target the abdominals and lower back.
"Research tells us that most people enter in the practice of yoga for fitness benefits," says Susan Haney, SVP of Marketing at Gaiam. "With this in mind, we strive to develop programming that serves the needs of our core customer. We were thrilled to work with Chrissy again on her second program, especially as it offers a new, targeted approach to the practice of yoga.
Yoga for Belly, Butt, and Thighs with Chrissy Carter is available on September 2, 2014 digitally on iTunes. The DVD can be found on Gaiam.com, Amazon.com, Target, and wherever DVDs are sold nationwide. It is approximately 90 minutes with a suggested retail price of $14.98.

Many of the well-known examples of DevOps success we read in blogs on the Internet paint an idyllic picture of DevOps productivity. A team was facing a stodgy, slow-moving operations department, teams weren’t delivering software on time. Those teams moved to DevOps, became proactive about infrastructure and deployment automation, and an overnight transition to productivity ensues. People are promoted, projects are successful, and developers and system administrators dance hand-in-hand in a final...
