Great start for your Yoga practice, hope you check the sites I listed so you can use what you learn in the studio with the poses that are shown either in the 21-day challenge or with Esther Erkhart or Natasha Rizopoulos

At the beginning of my practice I also watched Yoga for Dummies with Sara Ivanhoe, then I took classes at the studio(Vinyasa) and they I discovered, Rodney Yee, Shiva Rea, Barbara Benagh Cindi Lee, yoga journal.com, kripalu.org and Namaste Yoga (Kate Potter). Hope you the best in your Yoga Journey! Join us in the monthly challenge, inspire and be inspired.
Namaste!

thank you so much!

My experience is very minimal. I have yet to take a class and have just been very basic poses on my own. Someone had bought me the "yoga for dummies" dvd, and I have been doing poses from that, but I don't love it, that is why I asked.
I think hatha is a good place to start, and I have enrolled in yoga classes starting in about a week.

GREEKGODDESS19 there is in yoga journal a 21 day challenge for beginners, the session go at slow pace and the instructors show the poses, so they can be easily done, however if you are a beginner always is recommended to go to a studio or gym and take a couple of sessions with a certified Yoga instructor to make sure you do the poses right to avoid unnecessary injuries. In yoga journal.com the 21-day challenge is free and you can sign-up at anytime, you'll receive a daily session.

If you check this forum you'll find many dvd's, internet links, let me give you some:

www.yogajournal.com/21daychallenge/

www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmxHji4vpZs

www.youtube.com/watch?v=PH6P3HoWFPc


in dvds Barbara Benagh Yoga for Beginners, Natasha Rizopoulos, Yoga step by step, AM,PM Yoga Rodney Yee, in Yoga journal they also have good dvds, Jason Crandell is one good instructor, if you do the 21-day you'll see him there. Shiva Rea, is also a good instructor as well as Sara Ivanhoe. They are Vinyasa instructor and Hatha Yoga. What style do you want to practice? Hatha is a good start.

Join us in the monthly challenge. Let us know your experience in your Yoga practice.
Namaste!

p.s. a bit about the different Yoga Types:

I'm sure it has been posted in here a bunch already, but can anyone give me names or links to some yoga sites/dvds/etc. that will be great for beginner/intermediate yoga. I am starting and would like to eventually progress to do acro yoga and more complicated things and I just do not know where to start...

Amazon gave me a downloadable .mov type file (through their Unbox) of that workout at no extra charge (if I were so inclined to not want to use the dvd) so re: Amazon.com, there IS THAT ... I took advantage of that .... though the tangible disc is my go-to for Bethenny at this point...

You're welcome. At least B&N doesn't come back with a recommendation for Mandy Ingber's Yogalosophy - well, I have to pass through Jillian Michaels and Jackie Warner, first ... I don't want to go down that road ... Not that I'm a drinker at all, but I'll take the Skinnygirl Margarita brand over Jennifer Aniston's butt/brand ... emoticon

No, but not that link. I would have recommended THIS link:

www.barnesandnoble.com/w/dvd-body-by
-b
ethenny-bethenny-frankel/19262697?eaR>n=54961844098


But for the store itself for this; not the current Barnes price if possible ..

I'd paid $10.99 about a year and a half ago at the Barnes and Noble (brick & mortar store in Union Square, NYC - spot sale) just for Body by Bethenny ... that disc had led me to Exhale Core Fusion ... in its bonus section ... which I utilized my then-premium membership at myyogaonline to explore with a download of Elizabeth Halfpapp and Fred DeVito's Lean & Toned (killer workout -- scaring that much pain on the road to getting flexible hammies is not worth it to me, BUT, as ever, YMMV ....)

If you are looking for a butt-kicking if not a bargain, consider getting the individual disc of each workout...

BUT... definite bargain ... lol, PUNCHIE ...

I got the individual disc of that recently from the individiual link provided below:

www.amazon.com/Bethennys-Skinnygirl-
Wo
rkout-Bethenny-Frankel/dp/B005L0XY5CR>/ref=pd_cp_mov_0


it had been $8.25 at the time. Must be dynamic pricing at work here ...

And, for what it's worth ... I would not have given the Skinnygirl Workout more than 4 stars at Amazon ... but since I really have to ditch the pilates, it gets 4.5 stars ...

would post a review some time soon, though ...

As ever, YMMV, always ...

One of my friends ask me today if there was a good you tube video she could check out for a beginner who wants to learn yoga at a good safe slow pace.
I've been doing yoga for years and don't use videos and also don't know much about you tube, so not sure what to suggest to her.
Does anyone have a suggestion or link I can tell her about?
Thank you!

Hi! emoticon I am new to the team but have off and on been practicing yoga for over six years (in my home) and I have a few DVD's that I have come to love:

Candlelight Yoga with Sarah Ivenhoe for a great relaxation (good before bed)
Tamal Dodge's Hatha and Flow Yoga is a really good one
Yoga: Gentle Practice with Zyrka Landwijt is good for a relaxation/beginning one
Lately, I have been addicted to doyogawithme.com I love Fiji McAlpine -- she's my favorite, very informative during her videos.

www.doyogawithme.com/

I have made a pretty strong return back to yoga along with my return to intuitive eating, I love the way it makes me feel and love how much stronger I feel overall. Looking foward to getting to know everyone!!

SAFIYAH9 glad to have you in the team.
Natasha is an excellent teacher, and shows in detail how to achieve the poses.Those dvds are really good, when you are learning the poses and don't have access to a studio to learn them under the supervision of a certified instructor.

"Yoga Journal's Beginning Yoga Step by Step: Session One - Three
Natasha Rizopoulos " is the name of the dvd, isn't it?

Are you referring to the Ultimate Power Yoga dvd by Rodney Yee?
In this one, there are 4 session of 20 min and one of 15 min, power yoga, which means there is a flow, a sequence of poses, Rodney gives good directions but you go from one pose to the other matching breathing, the practices are really dynamic. You can watch a sample of the video in collagevideo.com

It's my guess that you might like the change to something more challenging, now that you know the poses.

Also 21-day Yoga Journal Challenge is very interesting, it has two levels, different instructors and different lengths,there is a dvd in Yoga Journal in special

but also I could give the link to check it out. www.yogajournal.com/21daychallenge/2

I have a question for those of you who are more familiar with the various DVD's. I have the Yoga Journal's Step by Step Yoga DVD set (3 DVD's) which I love. And I now see the references to the Ultimate Yoga DVD set, and I'm wondering what are the pros and cons of each?

I love Natasha's style. I can follow along with her without having to LOOK at the screen, if you understand me. By using the chalk talk, she's really good at reminding me of posture without needing someone there to spot me. I guess that's why she's considered so good for beginners. I'm still a beginner, I never seem to be able to follow this through to the end of the DVD's. Something always gets in the way (that something's name is LAZINESS, lets be honest).

But now I'm gonna. I signed up for the Yoga Journal Challenge, albiet late, and I'm determined to see this through. But I'm wondering if, when I DO get through this, perhaps the Ultimate Yoga collection would be good for me?

Any thoughts/advice is welcome.

GODZYFAN Glad to hear you are enjoying your experience, hope you are enjoying the dvds as well, 12 discs, how long are the practices, are there 108 practices? or how long is the program? I wish you the best in reaching your goals of weight loss and increase strength. It is a totally new lifestyle, keep us posted of your progress. It's great that also meditation is involved, because it shows a true commitment not only for the body but also for the mind.

Thanks for your reply! I did end up purchasing the Ultimate Yogi set and if you go direct to their website, it's only $108 and you can get free shipping through their facebook page. It's a big purchase but at least you get 12 discs out of it. My goal for the moment is weight loss and increased strength. I am finding it a challenging but rewarding practice so far. It focuses on various areas on different days: cardio, strength, balance, etc. and 2 days of the week are more restful by focusing on deep stretching one day and mountain poses on another. They also encourage daily meditation and I like that they encourage the spiritual benefits as well. I will keep you posted how it goes.

I didn't know Travis Elliot or his dvd, I'll checked in amazon and his full program is $125 wow!
I checked his page, and the video in youTube.

He looks ok, a bit expensive, if you like his voice, the way he teaches then he is the teacher for you. In collage video.com you can check more Yoga instructors. You have to feel in tune with what he does. Power Yoga is the more vigorous of the Yoga style but it is much better to attend as studio or gym with a certified instructor and learn the poses right from the very beginning if you are a beginner. In amazon Travis has good rating but one person disliked his voice and wondered to have 108 classes with him. This person recommended Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper yoga videos.

In my personal opinion I prefer Rodney Yee or Jason Crandell from Yoga Journal. What are your goals in practicing yoga? Weight loss? centering and flexibility? Check different instructors, go to a gym or studio, choose the one that appeals to you for his/her way of teaching, and voice. Check the forum for links info online. If you decide to practice with Travis let us know in the monthly challenge about your experience and progress. And if you choose another instructor or go to an studio or gym still let us and share your experience in the monthly challenge, which is a forum to get support and give support, be an inspiration and be inspired.Good luck!

Has anyone tried the Ultimate Yogi DVD program with Travis Eliot? It got a big write up in the Huffington Post recently saying it was supposed to be the P90X of yoga. It looks like it could be a good program for weight loss while also retaining the spiritual element of yoga practice which I like.

In my humble opinion, she is not a good instructor. I have watched a couple of her videos in you tube and livestrong.com and I noticed the position of legs completely off in for example side angle pose. She has a long way to mature and to improve as an instructor.

I consider the following instructors some of the most experienced: Cyndi Lee, Shiva Rea, Barbara Benagh,Patricia Walden,Natasha Rizolopoulus, Sara Ivanhoe, Elise Lorimer, Rebecca Urban, Rodney Yee, Tamal Dodge, Jason Crandell. There are many other names in Yoga Journal and Kripalu.

I actually love MTV yoga. Kristen McGee translates well to video I think and she does a great job explaining poses and modifications, I recommend that as a good starter video to people all the time. I still rotate her videos (including pilates) in with others, including some youtube ones from yogatoday, and the Rodney Yee series (power yoga strength/flexibility, energy balance, etc.) Rodney Yee has great flows, but very minimal instruction, and I perform best with reminders on where my breath should be or to align my hips, to keep my mind in the practice and not off wandering, if that makes sense :)

In another post CAROLJEAN 64 suggested:
"Rodney Yee's..Yoga Burn
A.M. and P.M. Yoga (2000) with Rodney and Patricia Walden,
This one looks like a good deal and the reviews are generally very positive:
Yoga for Beginners Boxed Set (Yoga for Stress Relief / AM-PM Yoga for Beginners / Essential Yoga for Inflexible People) "

and SHRLZI suggested: "Yoga for the Rest of Us" by Peggy Cappy

CAROLJEAN64 and SHRLZI also pointed out that nothing better that a registered certified Yoga instructor, especially for a beginner, to learn the right poses and specific modifications one might need and for an intermediate practitioner to improve the Yoga practice. Good Advice!

My own suggestions:

I'm new to yoga though not new to exercise. I was a skeptic, thinking that yoga couldn't possibly provide a good workout, but of course I was very wrong! For the last few weeks, I've done 20 minutes of yoga most mornings using DVDs, and have noticed increased strength and flexibility, plus I'm more calm and relaxed. A great intro DVD is 10-Minute Solutions: Yoga. I found this a nice tool for learning the basics, and several of the workouts in it (Yoga Burn, the one for abs, and the one for legs) are quite effective in terms of toning. Another great DVD, more advanced than 10-Minute Solutions, is Rodney Yee's Ultimate Power Yoga. I absolutely love it. He describes what to do very clearly so you don't need to be watching the screen every second. The moves are doable, with a few tough ones that give you something to work toward (particularly in the Back Bend and Standing Pose portions of the workout). Rodney's voice is calm and soothing, and the music is quiet and peaceful--who could be stressed out after that!? Yet I feel truly worked out afterward. Never knew yoga was such a great upper body workout, and my back muscles are definitely feeling it.

Hi everyone! I'm a fan of vinyasa yoga and my schedule often makes it difficult for me to get to classes. Anyone have favorite DVDs or teachers to suggest? Thanks in advance!

Rodney Yee's Yoga for Beginners or Quick Start Yoga for Weight Loss with Suzanne Deason are both good beginner dvds.

I pretty much love anything with Rodney Yee in it.

The above is very exacting in detail. It is also a very, very old school yoga video, pre-yoga boom. It is not slick and it is not fast practice. But you will get a good solid foundation with it. If you want in intermediate look at Shiva Rea. Elena Bower has a couple DVDs for Element that are in between beginner and intermediate.

Just wanted to dive in here and ask for people's recomendations for DVDs for beginners. I have read alot about Rodney Yee, but would like to ask if anyone could recomend any DVDs what would be suitable for me, having just ventured into the world of yoga in the last couple of weeks.

I'm thinking perhaps something that starts off fairly simple, but also has the scope for more intermediate yoga as I improve. Oh, and an instructor who doesn't rattle through the instructions and the poses, but who takes time to explain how to do them properly and gives enough time between poses to be able to move onto the next one without a rush. I'm frightened of being left behind!

Sorry if there's too many demands here - but many thanks to anyone who can hopefully give me some ideas. xxxx
