What's a good good yoga DVD?

Asked by robhaya (994points) January 18th, 2008

I’m looking for some recommendations on a good basic yoga DVD’s to buy. I’m new to yoga and want a DVD that progresses from basic moves to more intermediate moves. So I don’t get bored real quickly. My goals are to be more flexible for golf, better posture, and relaxed.

Thanks

Rodney Yee makes a wide range of good yoga videos that I have used. You can find them on his website right, but I’m sure shopping around will help:

Once you learn the positions, you can start changing your routine and not necessarily follow the routine in the video.

DVD’s are great for home use, and Rodney Yee does have some good ones. http://www.yogajournal.com/ is a great resource as well. It has a list of poses along with detailed instructions on how to get into it, what part of the body it helps, beginners’ tips, etc. Look at this one for example: http://www.yogajournal.com/poses/485, which focuses on the upper back and helps with sciatica.

Also, I would strongly encourage you to take a few classes with a qualified instructor (not usually found at the gym). They can see if you are doing the poses in such a way that you will not injure yourself. Good yoga classes aren’t necessarily cheap (usually $10 to $20 each), but it is well worth it to take at least a few in the beginning.
