10 Minute Trainer Yoga Flex Review

If you only have 10 minutes to workout you may as well come get your Yoga Flex on. I used to think that Yoga was just a bunch of Horse$#!& until I took my behind to a Bikram Yoga class; then I was a convert. My only problem with that class was this one particular instructor that went on and on about “the yoga ocean,” “the yogi soup” (I LOL’ed, yep, right in class!) and a few other nonsensical garbage yogaisms. Other than that, the class was pretty cool. These days I don’t have time to travel halfway across town to go listen to her…plus gas is freakin $4 a gallon. I like Yoga but I don’t like it enough to burn 4 gallons just to get there and back. Yeah I have the money, but I also have the money to buy fillet mignon’s yet I still eat at Taco Bell.

10-Minute Trainer Yoga Flex

Here is the deal:

  • 10 Moves in 10 Minutes

Yep that’s it – 10 Minutes and you are done!

Tools Needed:

  • Yoga Mat
  • Towel
  • Water

Sun Salutations

You will find that some of the moves in this program are taken from the Yoga X video also done by Tony Horton of P90X fame. Sun Salutations are simply breathing/stretching exercises.

  1. Starting out with your feet together, reach straight up and breath in deeply.
  2. Then drop down and touch your toes (make sure you keep your back as flat as possible).
  3. Now come up slightly in a table top position with your arms dangling.
  4. Next drop down into a plank position.
  5. Now do a push-up
  6. Next come up into a cobra position (upward dog position)
  7. Next get into a Downward Dog position and hold this position for 5 seconds
  8. Then step it up and position yourself like you were in step #3
  9. Repeat  step #2
  10. Back to step #1
  11. *Repeat the complete sequence again*

Split Leg Hamstring Stretch

Starting with your feet together, take one small step backwards, now follow the sequence below:

  1. Now go down into a hamstring stretch by dropping down and putting/trying to get your head and your knee to kiss and your palms flat on the floor. Hold this for 30 seconds.
  2. Now switch legs.

Runners Pose * Side Lunge

10 Minute Trainer Yoga Flex Review

Nothing fancy about these; get into a runners position with one of your legs as far back as it can go and the other leg up “all up in yo chest,” now put/try and put both hands on the ground to get a deeper hamstring stretch. * Make sure your knee is over your ankle in your front leg * Form is Paramount! After you hold this for the allotted time period, go directly into a side lunge by simple turning inward. *Note your legs will still be in the same position in accordance with your body.

  • Switch Sides / Legs

Right Angle Pose

Hmmm, well instead of writing about this pose here is a picture. Be sure you notice the position of the shoulder in correlation with the knee, the hand and foot, and the straight line from the shoulder to the heel. (PIC). Depending on your flexibility or lack thereof you may need a yoga block.

  • Extra Credit Move – Extend the arm so that there is a straight line from the tips of your fingers to the heel of your foot.
  • Switch Sides / Legs

Warrior II + Reverse Warrior

The Warrior pose is a very common yoga position. Check out the picture below. Again note the positions of the knee/ankle, boxed shoulders, back leg, and torso.

Warrior II

Here is a picture of the reverse Warrior. Depending on your flexibility, it will also affect how deep into this pose you will actually be able to get. Again you can seriously mess yourself up if you are doing these alone and you aren’t holding the proper position. DO NOT OVEREXTEND YOURSELF; especially if you have never done yoga before, this is not a race AND the whole workout is only 10 minutes.

Reverse Warrior

  • Switch Sides / Legs


*Time to get on the floor

Hamstring Stretch

Position your leg into an upside down “4” pattern (heel into your inner thigh). Now reach up with both hands with a straight back as high as you can go. Now reach for your foot; you are trying to get your chest to your knee. Try and open up your bent leg as much as you can.

  • Switch Sides / Legs

Wide Leg & Cobbler’s Stretch

A wide leg is just what it sounds like. While still sitting on the floor with your back straight, open up your legs as far as they can go. Now (your back is straight right?) reach up with both hands, and exhale down  and reach as far front as you possibly can, try and get your elbows on the floor.

  • Cobbler – When you come back up, place the bottoms of your feet together, and use your elbows to push your knees or inner thighs down for a deeper stretch. Try and get your face as close to or on the floor!

Pigeon Stretch

Yeah….um, here is a picture!

Pigeon Pose

Although the girl in the video does not do it, I personally prefer to put my elbows on the floor versus the way you see the girl in the video doing it. Later in the stretch the girl drops down and lays her whole upperbody on the floor. I can *almost* go as far as she does.

  • Now go into downward dog and shake/squeeze the trapped blood in your leg.
  • Swing through and Switch Sides / Legs

Torso Twist

Lay on your back with your arms straight out to your sides on the floor, bend your knees with your feet still on the ground, and next lift your knees so they are straight up in the air. Then look to your right and at the same time drop your knees to the left until they hit the ground (or as far as you can go).

  • Switch Sides

Homework Assignment: There is a deep torso twist in the video that really stretches you out. This move alone is worth the price of admission.

Cat / Camel & Child’s Pose

Another oldie but goodie; now you are on all fours and you arch your back up like an angry cat. Then drop your stomach and reverse that same stretch. Now finally sit straight back with your hands still on the ground and stretch out your back. There is a slight variation that Tony does in the video as well. That’s the bonus!



Good quick workout, ANYBODY can do this and it’s only 10 minutes. For what it is and what it promises to do, it works well. If you are very limber then this won’t get you very far; If you are not, then this will.

I give this workout 4.5 out of 5 Charles Faces.
