I was one of the "victims" of the Spark Deal of a "lifetime" subscription to the New Element Yoga website a few years ago. Never could get videos to load up on my phone or iPad, and some of the videos wouldn't even play on my computer. Many had poor acoustics, so I couldn't understand the teachers. Website kept locking me out even when I carefully typed in my password. Other days I got in just fine but a video wouldn't work. Tried again a few weeks ago and there is no website - "domain name for sale" and I could find no online info as to where the people went...
Yesterday's newspaper, near the "Ask Dr Oz" column, there was a little article about a new website for yoga! (Tuesdays paper always has the health and fitness segment in it.).
This one is called "DoYogaWithMe" -
And wow, it's free, it's right there - can select a work out based on length of workout time, level of experience (yours - beginner, intermediate, advanced, guru etc); type of yoga - the various Sanskrit names like Hatha, etc as well as things like Yoga for Runners, Yoga for Seniors, even a Pilates channel. There is also a selector for a specific teacher.
It's free - supported by DVD sales, and donations.
I did one of the shorter ones for Seniors and it turned out to be a seated workout opening up shoulders and thoracic region of the back. I enjoyed it.
Now, fun as the blog is, I need to get dog outside and pick a workout!!
