Yoga Experience

Thursday, March 04, 2010

Ok. So I finally bought that mat along with the band, belt and ball. It came with a DVD that has 5 workouts on it so I figured I was set.............WRONG! Either I'm completely "duh" or that dvd truly stunk. She went from one pose to another within seconds and didn't say what she was doing so when I got one down, I had to look up and sideways at the tv to see if I was doing it right and she was doing a totally different move already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please, if anyone knows a really good BEGINNER's dvd, please please please let me know!!!

    There's a Biggest Loser yoga DVD with Bob that I like. It's not your typical zen-like yoga, but he does explain the poses well. Jillian (the other BL trainer) actually just came out with a new yoga DVD this week as well - I bought it, but haven't done it yet, so I'm not sure how it is, but all of her other DVDs are great, so if you like her style, that may be a good option too!

    I do not know of any beginner DVD's for yoga, I use the Biggest Loser for the Wii and I started with the light version of yoga. Sorry I couldn't be any more help to you, but I know you will get it:)) Stay positive! emoticon

    ooh, yikes! ya, i agree with elseebee - try a class, and afterward, ask the instructor for some good beginner's dvd suggestions. apparently jillian michaels (biggest loser) has a new yoga dvd out - i really like her style (no-nonsense and basic, but effective!). not sure on how intense her new yoga workout is, but i bet it's easy to follow!

    I was interested in starting tai chi and someone gave me some advice that I think applies to you. Start with a class! That way you have someone who can watch your form and make sure you are doing it right. I, too, bought a dvd which was supposed to be for beginners, but I couldn't focus on the tv screen and do the moves at the same time. Look around and see if you can find a class near you at a ymca or community center that may be reasonably priced. Even if you can only get in a few lessons, that may help you get started with a dvd. Also, do you have any friends that do yoga? They may be willing to work though some beginner's basics with you and suggest a better dvd for you.

    Good luck! Don't give up on yoga- it is wonderful for you.

    I have always loved Rodney Yee DVD's ~ great for beginners! He has a wonderful calming presence, good explanations and is well paced. AM Yoga is still a favorite. Maybe take the time to just watch the DVD first and then jump in once you get an idea how the poses go. It's a laugh when your in a pose and there is no way you can watch at the same time, awkward!! Good Luck!!

    Keep me informed too. I have beginners Dahn Yoga and it's pretty slow and lets you learn the moves but I feel disgusted that I am not as flexible as I should be.
