The Ultimate Yogi Review – Most Complete Yoga Workout Home Practice

Les Leventhal Yoga Classes

If you are serious about starting a yoga workout home practice that you will stick with for the rest of your life then I recommend you begin by pushing the limits of your body and mind so you have a strong foundation to further your practice on. As a complete beginner to yoga, or maybe a seasoned veteran that needs to refocus, committing to your practice everyday for a short period of time will allow your practice to become a part of your daily life and promote lasting change within your body. This Ultimate Yogi review is intended for those serious about making real change in their bodies and are ready to make a lasting commitment.

Where To Start Your Yoga Workout Home Practice

For only consistently practicing yoga for just over a year I have had the opportunity to experience a wide range of different styles of yoga. Whether it was the therapy of DDP Yoga, the flow of vinyasa yoga, the calmness of hatha yoga, the intensity of CorePower Yoga, or a countless number of other classes and routines I watched online or through DVD programs, one program that I found that incorporates many different styles of yoga is The Ultimate Yogi.

What Is The Ultimate Yogi?

The Ultimate Yogi was created by Travis Eliot, who, through his years traveling the world experiencing different yoga styles and traditions, has taken all aspects of fitness and athletics and combined them into a balanced yoga practice. Throughout the program you will increase your balance, strength, flexibility and cardiovascular health without ever leaving the comfort of your home.

I was amazed at the production quality that these DVDs offered. The different sets that are introduced within the workouts go perfectly along with the calm, yet intense, aspect that yoga provides. You might be working out at home or anywhere else and you would never believe it with the way the routines really make it feel like you are in an actual yoga class.

What Can You Expect In The Program?

The Ultimate Yoga Review

The Ultimate Yogi Review

The Ultimate Yogi is a series of 12 different routines that are separated into three sections all around an hour each. You will be using all aspects of yoga to shape your body and mind into something completely new and amazing after you stick with the entire 108 days of consistent yoga. The 12 routines that you will see during the program are:

Cross Training – Takes all forms of athletics and combines them into a workout that uses the focus and intensity of yoga.

Cardio – Increases your heart-rate through constant flow through a variety of different yoga postures.

Strength – Builds muscle through maintaining yoga poses that focus on strength.

Balance – Utilizes yoga poses that test your balance in parts of your body you never knew could balance before.

Yin Yoga – Digs deep into the connective tissue of your muscles by holding poses for longer periods of time.

Detox – Includes postures that wring out your spine and internal organs by twisting your body in every way imaginable.

Vitality – Flows through a variety of postures that are made to increase your overall energy levels.

Mountain/Pranayama – A meditation sequence that is a slow breathing progression through different arm variations.

Flexibility – Uses long, slow, deep stretches while sitting on the ground to calm your body.

Gentle – Focuses on creating space in your body through holding different variations of each posture.

Hardcore – Ab routine to help with all other aspects of the Ultimate Yogi routines.

The 108 – The culmination of the entire series that tests your body through salutations.

Continuing Your Practice


Your Own PaceAfter the 108 days you might find yourself wanting more which is exactly why starting a yoga practice is crucial for your long-term health. Everything that you learn in the Ultimate Yogi program can and will be used as your practice advances and you venture into other forms of yoga.

For many people, 108 days of yoga might seem like too much to start with if you are just a beginner. The great thing about the Ultimate Yogi program is you can tailor the program to your specific needs. As long as you stay within the workouts that are listed in each of the 36 day sections, you can switch the DVDs around so you are using the routine that works best for you that particular day.

Go At The Pace That Will Allow You To Succeed

I always recommend going at the pace that works for you. If you know that you have never been able to stick with something for 108 days in a row, then start slow. Just make sure that you always come back to your mat and I promise that the results that you are looking for will come.

During the routines all of the postures are explained in great detail and have an entire class worth of people that are demonstrating different variations of the poses if you get lost. If you have never practiced yoga before then some of the routines might be very demanding and seem too hard but as long as you do your best you will get stronger overtime.

You’re not going to get the body that you want if you aren’t able to stick with it overtime so always go at your own pace, just don’t stop. Yoga is not a quick fix to your problems but can be the solution that you’ve been looking for if you allow your body the time it needs to heal and get stronger.

Is It Right For You?

If you’re still not sure whether The Ultimate Yogi is the best decision you can make to kick-start your yoga practice and lead you to a life free from pain, here are some pros and cons that might help:

Pros

  • Total-body – Gets you stronger, leaner, more flexible, and clears your mind all in one program.
  • Low-impact – Helps heal your bad joints and loosen tight muscles.
  • High-intensity – Effectively doing cardio without moving further than your mat.
  • Ego-less – Workout at your own pace.
  • Beginner friendly – No prior yoga knowledge is needed.
  • Portable – Workout from anywhere.

Cons

  • Intense Workout  – Some of the routines are intense and will push your limits.
  • Costs money – Joining a studio or following a routine can cost money when you first start.
  • 108 Days – Practicing everyday is great for the body but missing a workout can lead to a downward spiral.

Start Something Amazing


Although the Ultimate Yogi series might seem like a huge undertaking being 108 days of consistent yoga practice, remembering that you can go at your own pace and listen to your body will allow you much more freedom to use the workouts in a way that is best for you.

The Ultimate Yogi instructor has created something that I think is perfect for those that are looking to get in touch with themselves and their yoga practice. No matter if you are just starting and have aches and pains all over your body or if you have been practicing for years, this series of workouts allows you to focus on the parts of your body that you aren’t happy with and sculpt them to your liking.

Seriously, Get Serious!

As I said at the beginning, if you are serious about getting your health back on track and really making a positive change in your life then you need to dedicate yourself to something that is going to guide you through that change day-by-day until you are strong enough to do it on your own.

I believe The Ultimate Yogi is a great way to start healing your body if you are ready to dedicate yourself to 108 days of practice everyday. It doesn’t matter how much you struggle it only matters how long you are willing to struggle for and if you are able to stick with a yoga practice then you will find the relief you are looking for.

    I’m interested in yoga. But I’m scared of it. I’ve done a little…very little. It’s soooo hard to do.

    The closest thing to yoga that I’ve done and felt okay with is a stretching routine. Takes about an hour. Not nearly as intense as yoga.

    I’m nearly 60, have a back injury and had 2 knee surgeries. I wouldn’t want to hurt myself or get started doing something I was physically unable to do.

    So my question is: Is there a “beginner” level to ease a person into yoga so that he/she would be able to perform the more demanding routines later after working up to that level?

      Hi Jeff,

      The great thing about yoga is that for every posture that you go into there is always some way that you can modify it if your body isn’t ready for the full extension of the posture. Even if you go through an entire yoga class and start moving your body and going as far as your body is able to go, overtime your body will start to loosen up and you’ll notice things when you first began that gave you trouble no longer give you trouble anymore.

      When I first started I was in pain pretty much the entire time and I struggled to even finish some of the routines but I did as much as I was able to do and eventually I got stronger and the aches and pains in my body started to go away. It might take a few months or even more of your body fighting back when you start your practice but as long as you keep practicing, no matter how beginner level you started at, your muscles and joints will get stronger.

      Thanks for the comment!

    I am so impressed with the Ultimate Yogi that was created taking on board, all aspects of fitness. The fact that through this programme, one can achieve a lot such as balance, strength, flexibility and cardiovascular health in the comfort of one’s home is so exciting. Thank you for bringing up the issue of taking the programme seriously and sticking with it for the rest of one’s life.I have always struggled with sticking to a particular programme. Hopefully, the Ultimate Yogi will give me the breakthrough that I need.

      Sticking with a workout program is the hardest thing for most people to do in order to get in shape. I hope you are able to find a program that works for you!

    This is a great an informative website about yoga. I love the use of video, and that you have many pictures. I did notice that on the fist paragraph last sentence that you spelled yoga wrong! But other than that the layout of your website is great. I like how you explain how to start a in home version of Yoga. I see a lot of classes at my gym, but did not know that you could do it at home.

      Hi Rich!
      I’m glad you enjoyed the post! The word ‘Yogi’ is used to describe someone who practiced yoga so it was intentional 🙂 This program is called The Ultimate Yogi which would be the ultimate person who practices yoga. You should try out one of the classes at your gym – you might be surprised how much you enjoy it!

    I just started the Ultimate Yogi 3 weeks ago. Previously, I was doing a mix of weight training, cardio, and yoga (only 1-2 days a week of yoga). I absolutely love the program! But, I’m curious, do you think there needs to be anything added to the program on our own to get better results? Such as extra cardio or some weight training? I guess I’m just so skeptical that yoga alone will get me into the shape I desire.

      Hi Brooke! If you’re following the Ultimate Yogi program all the way through and are practicing every day for 108 days then you’re going to be getting all of the cardio and strength training that you are going to probably want. It might not seem like it at first but the power yoga workouts in the Ultimate Yogi are an entire body workout and you are going to gain tons of lean muscle mass over the course of the program.

      The great thing about yoga, no matter what your skill level is, you can always go deeper into each pose. So if you feel like certain poses are getting easy then try a different variation so you confuse your muscles and they get even stronger adapting to the change. You might not get huge muscles right away (if that’s your goal) but you will definitely see an increase in your muscle stamina and that is what is going to allow you to increase the size of your muscles as you advance in your practice.

      And extra cardio? Forget about it! Your heart rate is going to be through the roof during the Ultimate Yogi routines so unless you’re training to run a marathon then it is very doubtful you are going to want to add extra cardio to the mix.

      I hope you enjoy the program and let me know if you have any questions as you go through it!

    Hello here, thanks for presenting way to slim and improve shape especially when the spring is coming.
    I think that yoga is the best way to achieve balance between body and mind. It is the same as the shower. Most everybody who tried yoga can tell that body wants it. It feels good. Some asanas can remove depression, for example Dog pose.
    Your offered program is interesting because it was created by professional. For me it seems as long time to go through all DVDs but is worth to try. The health is most important asset. Yoga gives us flexibility, the strength and vitality.
    I wish that your visitors would choose to do yoga. Because it is best way to be healthy.

      Hi Nemira!

      I’m glad you agree that yoga is one of the best ways to get both your body and mind in shape! It’s amazing how a consistent yoga practice can not only help heal aches and pains in the body, it can also help your mental health just as much.

      The Ultimate Yogi is definitely not going to be something that everyone who starts doing yoga is going to want to do – 108 days of consistent yoga is a lot of yoga even for seasoned Yogis. However, mixing the DVDs into your weekly routines and doing the ones that you like the best is going to allow you to ease into the program at your own pace. Like you said, better health is the most important part of any yoga program.

      Thanks for the comment!

    I’m trying to find information on the diet to go along with the DVDs… I want to incorporate both. It says more information online but I don’t see anything. Can you please tell me more about this? I’m looking forward to beginning my journey!

      Hi Jennifer! I’m sure you can find a lot of good diet plans out there, but I’m a big believer in if you just eat healthier options and in moderation along with a regular yoga practice, your body will naturally start to lose weight. I eat a lot of lean meats, whole grains, and veggies at least once or twice a day. It really is just about finding something works for you and sticking with it. Good luck on your journey!
