Essential Yoga For Inflexible People

One of the great gifts of yoga is improved flexibility. Research has shown that improving flexibility and doing yoga helps you feel younger, healthier and lead a more active life style.

The yoga postures developed thousands of years ago were not created for people who are already flexible, but rather to help inflexible people become more flexible. Yoga videos, even those designed for beginners, may be too difficult for some people that lack flexibility. Essential Yoga for Inflexible P

    I have purchased other yoga/pilates dvd but never followed though. Why? I was simply too inflexible and uncoordinated for most of them–when I bend over I can very touch past my knees and I’m also about 40 pds overweight. But this video is doable for me–the routines are simple and give you time to work into a pose unlike others that move too quickly. I also like how the instructor uses props such as a chair to aid in stability.

    As someone who is rather inflexible and who is beginning to explore the world of yoga, this is an incredible product.

    I like to go to yoga classes, but have trouble fitting that into my schedule and following up in the weeks that pass between classes. So I had tried other yoga videos, but found them to be far too fast paced to follow along, and had pretty much given up on them.

    There’s a ton on this DVD, something like 3.5 or 4 hours altogether, and it’s fun to try and do different parts on different days.

    I wanted to give it 6 stars, but amazon only allows 5!

    A great DVD for beginners. The pace is excellent for those learning the poses – the speed is relatively slow so the viewer can take the time to move into a pose and focus on attaining correct alignment. The instructions are clear. Rationale and purpose of most (maybe all?) poses are provided as well.
    It’s also a great DVD for advanced beginners. I am an advanced beginner, and I found that it was helpful to see close-up how my body was supposed to be positioned. Sometimes in yoga class it’s hard to see an instructor’s subtle movement: you may be in the back of the room, the instructor may not hold the pose because he or she needs to assist students, or you may not be wearing your glasses (like me)!
    The video allows you to progress at your own speed. There are routines that focus on one type of pose (eg seated), one body part (eg stubborn hamstrings), and full routines too (eg AM practice). The DVD culminates in a 90 minute routine, which I believe is comprised of other parts of the video.
    In summary, it’s a great yoga DVD with, ironically, a ton of flexibility in how it can be used. The scenery is beautiful and Maggie Rhoades’ voice is soothing and calming. I highly recommend it!
    (Disclaimer: I am actually a student of Maggie’s. If you ever have a chance to take a class from her, do it. She is an amazing teacher with a great sense of humor and extraordinary enthusiasm for yoga practice and life.)
