Rated 4 out of 5 by from HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH “TONING TUMMIES” BUT I ENJOYED THE WORKOUTS TOP ZEN TUMMY TONERS contains 2 workouts that run at 18 and 26 minutes each and although I enjoyed both of them if you're looking for an abs or core workout this isn't it. The title of this Giam DVD is very misleading as I never once felt my abs working during Rodney Yee's strange aerobic jumping session or Cameron Shayne's Vinyassa flow series. Boat pose, the most basic of the core poses is not preformed once nor is any other known `Tummy pose' in fact there are very few seated poses at all. Due to the deceiving title I wanted to give this a low rating but can't because fortunately I really liked both workouts, they just weren’t what I was expecting. So if your looking for 2 slightly different, shorter yoga practices with great instruction and good flow I recommend this however if your looking for an abs specific routine instead try Rodney Yee's Abs Yoga or Shiva Rea's Creative Core Abs. I started with Rodney Yee’s workout although there is a ‘yoga matrix’ type menu that allows you to preset the order you want to do the workouts in. There is also a top 10 pose guide which explains some of the basic poses in detail and shows them being preformed from different angles. Rodney’s workout is different than what I’m used to from him; starting abruptly he leads a class of 4 including Mariel Hemingway from inside a studio. There is no voice over instead Rodney wears a head set and informally chats out the instruction along with Mariel. This is reminiscent of 15 Minute Results Yoga which they also instructed together and although their banter is entertaining the first time through it does tend to get annoying. We then begin with a series of knee bending arm swings, progressing into lunges, Tree pose, Warrior 2, Side stretches, Foreword bends and some more jumping exercises, ending in child‘s pose. For an abs workout I sure felt this in my legs? But it was different and got my blood flowing. The instruction although informal is easy to follow and one of the students shows beginners modifications so this is suitable for all levels. I loved Cameron Shayne’s Vinyassa flow workout, although not knowing his background I found it a little strange that he taught shirtless and wearing a black belt. (I later learned he has a mixed martial arts background). His cuing is calming, fluid and precise and the sequence of poses just different enough to keep my interest. Again one of the 6 student’s shows beginner’s modifications but be aware as a beginner that you’ll be holding Bridge Pose and Upward/Downward dog a lot. (I felt this abs workout in my arms) At 26 minutes this class is slightly longer and my only complaint is the abrupt ending, Shayne just suddenly states “that’s your class” and its over without any cool down, seated poses or savassana. Top 10 tummy toners is touted to “work your abs from every angle” and “create core definition like never before” It doesn’t achieve this but I still enjoyed these short distinct sessions.
