Yoga for Beginners & Beyond or so the title says of the DVD I am holding. I am positive I easily qualify for the title of beginner. I’ve had exactly one experience with Yoga before and it was Yoga X from the P90X workout series. Yoga for Beginners is a DVD also put out by bodywisdom media, the same publishers that did the Tai Chi DVD that we are using for our Tai Chi program later on.
We wanted to start with Yoga first because it has a larger following and the claims made we want to test out first. Mainly I want to see what wonders it will do for my flexibility and injury prevention. I know that many people are probably more interested in Yoga because of these claims. While I have no doubt that practicing Yoga will help overall, I wanted to try a few different programs to see what the different effects might be.
So as such we will be starting off with a Yoga for Inflexible People DVD. Its part of the Yoga for Beginners series that I got my hands on. Were going to do it in the comfort of our own home first and maybe later on when we need more instruction or help we’ll move into a studio or gym setting. The other program that we want to try is the AM/PM Yoga for Beginners. This is probably the ultimate end goal as it would be interesting to see if we could energize ourselves for the day without having to resort to caffeine in the morning. Relaxing our minds at night is also a must so we can get restful sleep and are not constantly waking up halfway through the day. Hopefully these DVDs give us a good starting point and we can progress onward from here.
I know many people out there may be uncomfortable going to a studio setting, this is why were trying a home program of Yoga for Beginners. I personally know that until I was able to do some of these poses I may have trouble keeping a straight face in a public setting. They are just goofy and some people may not be okay with getting into all the different positions in front of others without some semblance of knowing whats going on. Everyone needs to start somewhere though.
So follow our journey into flexibility and injury prevention, with a splash of mind clearing as we check out Yoga for Beginners DVD from bodywisdom media.
