Yoga instructor Tara Stiles’ Daily Yoga DVD will be out just in time to keep you toned and trimmed through the new year!

It’s easy to pack on pounds over the holidays with all the festive food and party hopping, but if you combine stretching, linked poses and balancing exercises, Tara says it’s a workout anyone at any level can do and a great way to build strength, flexibility and tone your entire body. The beautiful Tara stopped by our HollywoodLife.com offices in NYC to show you some moves in the DVD that hits stores today!

Under the resurrected Jane Fonda Workout brand, the DVD gives you the perfect excuse to start your post-holiday hotness quest! In addition to Tara’s Daily Yoga, there are three other DVDs in the workout series: Sculpt and Tone with Karena Dawn and Katrina Hodgson, Bootcamp Ultra with Jeanette Jenkins and Fast Abs Sculpt with the entire Fonda Team.
