I like the Biggest Loser's Weight Loss Yoga. It was not horribly priced on Amazon. You have your choice of doing 30, 50, or 60 minutes of yoga.

I'm also new to yoga and found this one which is manageable for a starter and it is very relaxing too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAm5j0vvnJ0

Wow, thanks for that clip, it was really inspirational!

Although I enjoy cardio and strength training and do both regularly, it's yoga that has helped me most. It has helped with mindfulness about my body and what I put into it. It also reduces stress and has helped me overcome the worst of my bingeing tendencies. And finally, of all the physical things I do, yoga makes me feel best!

Namaste!

If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up!

Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.

This U-tube clip isn't what you asked for ... but it may help you. It's an incredibly inspiring 5-minute video of a guy's progress doing yoga. If you find it hard at first, this may keep you going.

If you have a yoga studio in your area, it's good to take a couple classes with a teacher to help you feel the postures correctly. A lot of them offer free first classes because different individuals need different things.

Shiva Rea's DVDs are beautifully done. I own Yoga Shakti, which gives a mix of different difficulty levels, so you can grow with it.

I am overweight but would like to start yoga and would love any suggestions for a video / dvd for me to have to start my experience with. Thank you for your help.

Nothing taste as good as feeling good about yourself feels!
