Best Yoga DVD for You?
The safest and most effective way to practice yoga at home is by using a yoga DVD. Here are some suggestions to help you find the best yoga DVD for your needs.
Best Beginner Yoga DVD
The easiest and quickest way to dive into yoga is by selecting a beginner yoga DVD. Choose a DVD that breaks down beginner yoga poses for you before it jumps into a full yoga routine. An excellent DVD to start out with is Yoga Journal’s Yoga for Beginners with Patricia Walden. Walden takes her time demonstrating beginner yoga poses and even gives modifications and variations. After you feel comfortable practicing a number of easier, beginner yoga poses, find a beginner yoga DVD that has shorter routines. A.M. and P.M. Yoga with Rodney Lee and Patricia Walden is a great choice. It contains soothing, simple routines to either start or end your day with, and is a great way to ease yourself into beginner’s yoga routines. These are common, popular DVDs and can be found in many libraries, video-rental stores, or online.
It is now easy to download DVDs legally and quickly from your computer. Yoga Online is now offering their popular Beginner’s Yoga DVD for free, available right on the website! Their Yoga DVD, The Art of Aging, is a beautifully filmed, seven-part series that has precise, detailed instructions to guide you. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and tranquil music as experienced yoga practitioners guide you through a series of restorative postures.
Remember, the disadvantage of learning yoga from a DVD is that you will eventually either a) outgrow the DVD or b) become bored with it. That’s why it’s always a good idea to keep an eye out for excellent, free DVD resources. The best yoga DVD is often the one that instructs without breaking the bank.
