How to Use Yoga DVDs and Videos to Round Out Your Practice


I absolutely love using yoga DVDs and yoga videos during my practices. As a matter of fact, I use one of them almost every time I do yoga. Why do I love using them so much?

They Provide Variety
I don't know about you, but I get bored pretty easily. Doing exactly the same practice over and over again would drive me crazy. Instead of enjoying the relaxation that comes from yoga, I would probably be irritated by having to do the same program every time I practiced. To deal with my need for diversity, I have an assortment of yoga DVDs and I usually pick a different one each time I practice. I choose one that fits my mood and then get to enjoy the practice thoroughly.

Enjoy Favorite Classes
Even though I like variety, I also have some favorite programs. With yoga videos, I get to enjoy my preferred 'classes' as often as I like. It's like visiting with an old friend - you know what to expect and it's very comfortable.

They Are Time Efficient
Like you, I never seem to have enough time. Going to a yoga class adds up to two hours to my practice time when you consider driving to the center, finding a parking spot, registering, and getting my space in the class. Sometimes, I can't fit in the extra time into my schedule, so I use a video instead.

They Are Convenient
Yoga videos are very convenient because they are always ready when you are. You might want to practice at a certain time, but there isn't a class available. I know this is the case with me. Very often yoga classes in my area are offered at times that don't fit my schedule. So instead of not practicing at all, I use one of my yoga tapes and I'm all set to go.

You Get to Practice With Renowned Teachers
There are many gifted teachers in yoga and it is a thrill to practice with them. One of my favorite power yoga instructors is Bryan Kest. The only problem is that his studio is in California and I live in New Jersey. It's pretty hard to practice with an instructor who lives 3,000 miles away from you. By using one of Bryan's yoga DVDs, it is like he is right there with me in the room.

You Choose a Practice Based on What You Need
Yoga DVDs allow you to focus on what you need at a specific time. You can choose one that focuses on stress reduction, one that helps you build your upper body, one that helps build your core. You can also pick one that suits your specific physical situation such as pregnancy yoga or yoga for seniors. You decide what you want and you choose the video that meets that need.

It's Easy to Modify Postures
Lately, I have been dealing with an injured foot that occurred while I was running. As a result, I can't put any pressure on the front of my foot. That means I have to modify a number of poses such as Plank Pose -- I need to put my knees down so I don't bear my entire body weight on my forefoot. Sometimes it takes a lot of extra movements to get into a posture because of this injury. I would find it very uncomfortable to have to do all of these modifications in a regular class with other people around. By using one of my yoga DVDs, I can easily modify the posture to meet my physical needs and I can do it in the privacy of my own home.

Now you can see why I think yoga DVDs and videos are so great. They are easy, convenient, and they can add breadth to your practice. Try some and see for yourself. You might grow to love them too.
