Also, don't overlook www.doyogawithme.com

It's SOOOoo not their business, but their not having pose "guides" for their audios allows this self-practitioner to improvise ... I really like 3 of the teachers on there ... and for a nominal-cost site, that's saying something, since on myyogaonline.com, I like 4 of the yoga teachers on there ... yogadownload.com has repetitious and less creative flows for me, that I'd found so far ...

I use myyogaonline.com for bellydance and Bollywood dance instruction to a great degree ...

Where do I find that video? This morning I used the Forrest Vinyasa from yoga download.com and loved it! I can take this workout anywhere. I'm so excited!

I agree with Shrlz...the way I do that is to begin with standing poses, then some splits, seated twists, shoulder rolls and plow. I do sun salutations in between and my routine takes about 45 minutes.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

I love the freedom and relaxed attitude of "any pose is ok" "do what you feel like doing" -- there is really nothing "wrong" in yoga -- and I also love the results when I include poses I don't like - ones that don't come as easily as others - A rule of thumb passed down to me decaeds ago is this:
Include forward bends, backbends, side bends and twists. In other words, move every joint in its entire range of motion! Start with feet, then legs, hips, torso, arms, neck/shoulders, head. Or the other way, start with head and end with feet.

Agreed! Check out YogaDownload.com - I LOVE the pdf files that you can print or have up on your screen while doing the routine.

I think any move that you like is the best move :) Sun salutations are nice easy ways to start - for me at least - because so many routines start with them, so I already know the flow. Then just go where your body leads you! Go from down dog, lift a leg, open a hip, keep rotating it around into a wheel pose... or from warrior I to II to side angle to standing splits...

I also like using yogajournal.com to look over asanas and get ideas. But the more yoga I do, the more it seems that any way you want to "pose" is fine. One of my teachers even enjoyed a good "superman - banana!" as a way to loosen us up and get us laughing :) (You lay on your stomach and lift your arms and legs like you're flying as Superman, then quickly roll yourself on to your back and lift your arms and legs again off the mat so you're making a banana shape. Then we'd keep rolling back and forth between the two. Good way to get your energy up if you're tired)

There are also a lot of charts you could download from the internet if you forget your mp3 player. Yoga Journal magazine always has a new routine chart, too.

You might try yogadownload.com. They have several free 20 min yoga mp3s I've downloaded to my phone with printable pose guides, plus a TON of other routines you can purchase.

Hi all,
I love yoga but don't always have video available to me. What are some of the best moves to do on my own?

Alternatively, is there a routine laid out that I can print or carry with me?

Thanks!
