Top Yoga DVDs

These days almost anyone with the right financial backing can produce a DVD. If you're looking for yoga-centered DVDs of the highest quality, know that you will get the best bang for your buck when you choose someone who is certified and qualified with years of experience. You will need to look past the beautiful cover and read more about the background of the instructor. Because yoga is your focus, you will want to avoid DVDs with instructors who offer strength training and aerobics along with yoga. Do some online research and look for clips of the DVD you are interested in. Be sure the instructor not only discusses the physical aspects of each pose but also provides guidance on breathing and weight distribution.

Styles of Yoga

Yoga may be focused on a meditative and spiritual connection; on strength, flexibility and stamina; or on a combination those concerns. When looking for a DVD, think about your goals and what you need. Choose one that focuses on one style of yoga but provides more than one sequence -- or workout session -- for you to follow. If you are a beginner, you will need a DVD that caters to you. As a beginner there is much to learn about breathing, meditation and poses. For those who are at the intermediate or advanced level, be sure the program will challenge you and allow you to take your practice to the next level.
