I highly recommend a dvd by Tamal Dodge called Hatha and Flow Yoga for beginners. I find it more challenging, but not too difficult. The instruction is very clear. Tamal provides a strap with the dvd and clear instructions and modifications. This has become my favorite yoga practice. Their are two practices on the dvd. The first one is the Hatha practice in which you use the strap to help you into some of the poses. I also like the Flow practice, which is different than most flow practices, that is is repetitive and doesn't move too quickly. It is challenging, but, I am able to be successful in keeping up and going deeper into the poses. Each practice is 30 minutes. Sometimes I will do both practices. I start with the more rigorous flow and end with the Hatha practice. Sometimes I just do the Hatha, because it is more relaxing.

Yoga for Beginners, by instructor Kanta Barrios is one of my favorite yoga dvds. It is a great beginning practice. There are four separate practices, that you can do individually or choose to do all on the menu. This practice has four sections, 1. Warm up sequence, 2. Standing Poses, 3. Sitting poses, and 4. Restorative poses. I like to practice in the evenings. It helps me in reducing stress and prepares my body and mind to sleep.

One of my favorite yoga books is called "Yoga and Commonsense", it's an old one, but a goodie. I teach tomorrow at corporate Jack-in-the-Box...weird!

I also really like "Yoga for Dummies"...great information!

And could list a ton of books, but am now studying for 500 hour and re-reading the Gita, with a Krishna slant...and In Search of Vedic India...tomorrow, I need to complete one more task in my hours, and get motivated to get done! Soon~

Anusara is my favorite style. John Friend, the creator, has a few of his workshops on dvd. They are not appropriate for beginners, though.

Choreography for the Seane Corn Uniting Movement and Breath 70 minute Breath Session

After all, the only place a yoga instructor should be silent (no verbal cues) is in an unled class or in final resting pose (savasana). I wonder if Seane Corn intended this session as unled vinyasa. My thread (linked-to above) tells me, "no". The choreography is just too even, symmetrical, and precise.

You see, only some of the transitions seem to follow the rationale behind each movement of the symphony.

Seane Corn has no dance background.

As good a yoga teacher as she is, that is what makes it hard on the student.

As a service to my teams, I plan to post my interpretation of the choreography to Seane Corn's dvd, Vinyasa Yoga, Uniting Movement and Breath, Session I, Disc 2, Breath Session:

In the Team I lead.

Once I have it up, I will provide the link.

Two things to keep in mind:

#1. This is not absolutely perfectly synchronized, but I think it comes close. I have a great sense of rhythm, but not as good as that of a professional choreographer.
#2. Because of #1, and because this is MY INTERPRETATION, I do not believe that I am in any danger of copyright infringement. This had been my exact practice to it, and I don't copyright that, either emoticon

Enjoy!

Most of my practice is by DVD. My favorites:
Bryan Kest's Power Yoga
Seane Corn's Vinyas Flow Yoga DVDs (I still use the version with her voice instructions)
Ali McGraw Yoga Mind and Body (Ali does not instruct this)

I also like the Basic Yoga for Dummies video (and Beyond Basic Yoga for Dummies) as a beginner series. Sara Ivanhoe does the instructing, and she is just wonderful.

Beth Shaw's practice is fairly mellow in nature. I would recommend Seane Corn, vinyasa though, but on the mellow end of the continuum, but again you have the same problem in having to nearly memorize the sequence in order to follow her (undirected) "breath session". Which I did. No instruction whatsoever. Just the visuals and the sound of her breath. I tagged parts of the sequence to the symphonic movements of the Indian piece she practiced to. I was always out of sync when I looked up at the dvd; and I pride myself on having a great sense of musical rhythm. It's just how it goes.

I have Beth Shaw's Hatha Yoga book. I like it, it was good for learning when I started out. It was the book required for the college exercise class I took. I liked the class so much I thought that Beth's DVDs would be a worthwhile investment, I purchased two of them: Yoga Core, and Yogafit Pure Power. I couldn't have been more annoyed with the DVDs. When I get a DVD and it has you go from pose to pose, I would like to know what pose I have to go into with someone telling me what I need to do, not having to look up from say, bridge, and seeing what to do next.

Oh, Lilias is so old school ... but I like old school ...

When it comes to yoga-pilates fusion, don't forget yogilates with Jonathan Urla ... a lot milder than the original Yogalates of Louise Solomon ... (or at least Urla has you thinking it's milder) ...

I have and have used: Yogilates 2 - Intermediate and Yogilates 3 - Advanced - Vinyasa Core

This had clearly been a happy accident ... really ... because I could not order a certain yoga dvd (as a rebate in merchandise form)—the Rainbeau Mars Yoga for Beauty had been always sold out so I substituted a Yogilates dvd, and that led to the love affair with Yogilates ....

Although I'd had great, and beyond probability, luck with a pilates teacher once ...

May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.

Hi everyone! I've done yoga once many years ago and have to say was turned off because i found it moved too quickly, recently my friend told me there are alot of different styles and i just need to find the right now. So now I am very interested in giving it a try and finding the right kind but I hear all these different types and methods and teachers and videos and it just makes my head spin. Can you guys recommend a good yoga dvd video for a beginner who knows NOTHING about it and is a little on the heavier and less flexible side? =)

Thanks!!!

I don't know if this book has already been mentioned or not, but one good book is "Big Yoga: A Simple Guide for Bigger Bodies" by Meera Patricia Kerr and Dean Ornish. Also, even though they are getting increasing harder to find, I have to give a shout out to any of the works by the lady who helped to get me started--Lilias Folan. Have a great weekend, all.

I tried Bob Harper's "Inside Out Method: Yoga for the Warrior" this morning, and found it an excellent workout. His admonition about the toughness of the practice worried me at the beginning, but I accomplished most of the poses, modifying as recommended when I couldn't quite sustain what he asked. Having read reviews of the DVD at Amazon.com, I'm surprised more people don't emphasize the modifications. Some DVDs don't include them, so I appreciate the ones that do. Yes, the disk is rated for intermediate-to-advanced practitioners, but I find it's fine for those like me who are in the beginning-to-intermediate range.

Has anyone tried YogaVibes? I am interested and thinking about subscribing, but would like any input from anyone who already has experience with it.

I love the Home Practice from Yoga Journal, they have archived several months online. I am currently loving the May 2011 sequence "Fluid Nature."

I just ordered a 3 DVD set from Amazon for beginners (it got 4 1/2 stars), and a beginner's essential kit (includes a mat, etc.). Both appear to be useful.

I can't wait to get the items! Using the book just isn't the same as having a video. My local library has nothing for videos.

I'll tell you how it turns out and I become a yoga master!

My favorite yoga workouts are by Cyndi Lee (Om Yoga). She has cards you can lay out on the floor, CDs you can put on in a quiet room, books that lay flat and have neat stick figure images to follow.

If anyone has netflix the crunch candle light yoga is on there as well as a few others. Seeing everyone recommend Sara Ivanhoe I believe I will try this tomorrow when everyone is in bed. I am a lover of ashtanga yoga and David Swenson's short forms. I had it on VHS and have upgraded to the dvd version now. It has 15, 30 and 45 min workouts for whatever your fitness and time constraints. I also have the complete first set book and the advanced practice dvd

I also really enjoy Sara Ivanhoe as a yoga instructor. She has some great videos. Crunch: The Perfect Yoga Workout has 2 workouts that are taught by Sara. and Crunch: Candlelight Yoga is also a great relaxing yoga practice that Sara teaches. Finally, Sara Ivanhoe's Yoga Body Makeover is a great DVD set that has a few 20 minute practices to choose from. Good stuff!
I am going to have to see if I have the workout you mentioned available to me on my OnDemand.

Ophanim yoga got me interested in Kabbalah yoga and energetics. The one DVD that got me started (and curious) is Kabbalah Yoga: Ambitious Beginners, featuring Ariela Nevel. I have several books: one is called Jewish Meditation and the other is Kabbalah in Motion. But the DVD has a much more active slow flow-ish feel to it, rather than a gentle, contemplative, meditative approach.

There is a DVD-ROM section on Kabbalah Yoga: Ambitious Beginners that is a tutorial on Kabbalah philosophy and has many interesting chapters.

I also became interested in Buddhist-inspired yoga teachings/classes.

Both spiritual strains of yoga draw on vinyasa traditions.

But I also got pretty heavily involved (given my very frequent home yoga practices) with a studio (more contemplative, hatha oriented) that has ophanim elements ...

This is very topical, in light of some clergy of Western religions opposing yoga's prevalence today amongst Judeo-Christian faiths.

In addition, Kabbalah adds elements of mystical offshoots–such as Hebrew numerology–which could be a different, more enriching take on the spiritual and mystical sides of this many-faceted practice.

An illuminating practice.

Found another yoga teacher that I really like, Sara Ivanhoe. I did her yoga with weights last night for 42 mins. It was on FitTV under all-star-workouts. It was tough, but great. She also has a dvd and it is yoga with a stability ball. That one is awesome! Feeling great today.

Someone asked what was the appeal of Rodney Yee's yoga dvds. I have one of his books and I did his 8 weeks of yoga following his book. So far (as I am new to yoga)I find Rodney Yee to be really down to earth and easy to follow. I am about to attempt his intermediate yoga dvds as I have found I am moving past his beginner yoga dvds. I like Shivea Rhea, but I have really bad knees and I find her dvds to be focused too much on the knees and it kills me.

I have about 12 dvd's that I rotate through. I would never suggest only at home yoga though, I go to 60-90 minute sessions 4 or so times a week at a local dance studio, my gym and Yoga Union...

I use a yoga card deck and love Dr. Yoga(book), the revised edition

My best dvds:
Eion FInn- In Pursuit of Happy Hips (LOVE!)
Rodney Yee- Power Yoga Total Body
Shiva Rea- Vinyasa Flow
Deb Dobbin- Vinyasa FLow
Sadie Nardini- One hour core

Least favorite of all time- yoga booty ballet ) u

I really love Namaste Yoga from FitTV, and I enjoy Jillian's Yoga Meltdown (though I wouldn't call it yoga so much...). I've done a couple yoga videos from Yoga Journal (free, online) and ExerciseTV. Really like both of them.
For a real challenge, I rented Iron Yoga a while back. It was killer - yoga with weights. I want to get my own copy.
Also, P90X Yoga is 90 minutes long and really good, if you have that kind of time. Generally, I do not...

Shiva Rea - daily energy flow. I LOVE the yoga matrix and I love how this DVD has enlivening sequences and relaxation sequences, allowing me to customize my daily practice with how I am feeling. It's an awesome DVD. Namaste!

Does anyone know any good yoga DVDs for flexibility? I've rented a few from the library, but haven't had much luck. Thanks!

I tried a new video yesterday. Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown. She used yoga poses with repetition and increased speed. I woke up this morning hurting all over. I can really tell that a lot of my body got a really good workout.

On Netflix instant play I just watched "Enlighten Up"a documentary about yoga and how it can change you... the subject-Nick- totally was changing towards the end and became more spiritual even though he didn't think he did it was obvious.
It was pretty cool because he traveled to India and other places and talked to a lot of yoga gurus.

I have done yogatoday.com and I have downloaded podcasts. I like the yogatoday but the audio only podcasts are a bit trickier if you are a novice like me. I think it helps to see it.

I'm trying to conceive, and I've found the best prenatal yoga dvd is Gaiam's Prenatal Yoga with Shiva Rea. She has a person to represent each trimester, and you use lots of props, something I'm not used to in my own practice normally because I am fairly flexible, and there's tons of guidance. I'm not pregnant yet, but I wanted to give it a try for when I do become pregnant, and if anyone out there is wanting to do prenatal yoga, pick up this dvd. Well worth it.
