Recently, Yoga has been the new fitness buzz. Everyone talks about it celebrities, health networks, doctors, etc. If you have been interested in trying Yoga but have been procrastinating or just don't know how to get started, videos may be your best option! I have been practicing Yoga for about three years now. The way I first got started was through Gaiam Fitness Videos. This brought out my passion for Yoga. I find that even after having the worst day ever it can make me happy. It has been know to reduce stress, lengthen and sculpt muscles, stretch your body, and make you happier. Not to mention that it has great affects on your skin as well! Your almost always glowing after you practice it! The video that I first used to get into Yoga was called Quick Start Yoga For Weight Loss. The instructors name was Suzanne Deason and she is basically the Yoga Guru for the Gaiam website. She is very easy to follow, takes everything slow for beginners, and has a very soothing voice. When she explains each pose she gives examples that relate to every day life you so can understand it more thoroughly. She takes you through a series of poses that promote weight loss with healthy eating. I found that this video really gave me a jump start to becoming fit, I believe that if I hadn't started out with this video to begin with I wouldn't be as fit as I am today. The video contains two easy to follow videos, one is the weight loss program and the second one is an easy stretching/meditation sequence. The Meditation sequence is perfect for waking up in the morning or winding down at night. There is a guarantee on the website that if you do not like the dvd you can return it within a certain amount of days. But, I'm positive that you won't be sorry when you purchase this video. For equipment, all you need is a simple yoga mat, a yoga strap, and a yoga brick. You can all purchase these on the Gaiam website as well. I hope that this review will get you dying to try Yoga! If you enjoy learning about Yoga and want me to blog more about it or make up Yoga Workouts, make sure you comment below! Oh and don't forget, when practicing Yoga drink plenty of water (out of a re-usable water bottle of course, to save the planet! (:)! P.S There are two different covers for the dvd so make sure you double check the name!
