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 video that meets that need.
Itís Easy to Modify Postures - Lately, I have been dealing with an injured foot that occurred while I was running. As a result, I canít put any pressure on 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 donít 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 posture to meet my physical needs and I can do it in 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.
