    ISO Yoga workout

    I have been wanting to do yoga for a long time now, but don't really have an oppurtunity nearby that I can attend... Anybody can suggest a great DVD that gives you a yoga workout??? I don't like DVD's that get me going for 2 hours cuz sometimes I can only spare 30 minutes...

    Rodney Yee's AM Yoga For Your Week is great. I believe it has 5 20 min sessions. Perfect for me. I like it better than Shiva's new week of 20 min. version. I'm bendy, but Shiva's stuff always seems so advanced.

    anything by shiva rhea, her dvd's have interactive menus that allow you to tailor your workout to your time frame and what you'd like to do in that particular day

    Re: ISO Yoga workout

    I agree with Rodney Yee's AM/PM stuff. Short and good. But I actually regularly use an old VHS of his called "Yoga For Energy". It is one of my desert island yoga videos! (Edited to add: Yoga For Energy has no instructional breakdown whatsoever, so is not for beginners.)

    Kina is right about the easy usability of Shiva Rea's DVDs. I like her Yoga Shakti one best. Sooo much stuff packed onto that little disc!

    I really like Erich Schiffmann's backyard series, too. Not short, very no frills, but packed with information (I think they are each about an hour). In particular I like the Beginner one and the Backbends one (even if you don't want to do backbends there are really more preparatory moves than actual backbends). If you get into doing your own practice, his Freedom Style Yoga DVD is oddly effective, in an imaginary friends kind of way!

    He also put out an older video with Ali McGraw called 'Yoga Mind and Body' that is a staple for me. You can find used copies easily.

    If you can get yourself to a live class, even once in a while, it will really augment anything you can do at home.

    Enjoy!

    Ali McGraw's Yoga, Mind, and Body is out of print. It is very, very, hard to score a copy without having to pay $200 dollars. I've heard it's on Netflix, though.

    Oh bummer. I'll take care of my copy, I love it!

    Looks like you can still get a cheap VHS copy...

    Re: ISO Yoga workout

    Depends -- what's your goal?

    Since you used the phrase 'yoga workout' I assume you're looking for a physical fitness tape with a yoga slant? Rather than actually learning yoga for its holistic health benefits with strengthening as a side effect?

    (kind of like a BellyRobics class rather than a learn-to-dance class?)

    If that's the case, you might want something like a YogaFit tape.

    if you have ITunes, then try the Yogamazing podcasts, around 20-26 mins each, some older podcasts are general beginners etc, but he also does specific ones as well, Episode 185 was for bellydancers ..g.:

    I agree with Shiva Rea, she's really great.
    I also like all the 'Kundalini Yoga' DVD with Ana Brett and Ravi Singh. I want them all... (I currently own 3 or 4).

    Re: ISO Yoga workout

    Reading this, makes me laugh. Years ago, I got a phone call one day, looked at my boss and said, I need to go. Rodney Yee is in town teaching yoga! My boss didn't even blink an eye! But two days before he had canceled his afternoon appointments because Billy Blanks had been teaching.

    Obviously, I am seconding Rodney Yee, and I know Shiva and think she is excellent.

    I have that DVD and use it faithfully! Love it! Good suggestion. It has several different time limits/formats for you to choose from! Walmart - one of the best DVD's I ever bought from there and cheap! I think I paid $10.00.
