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 donít know about you, but I get bored pretty easily. Doing exactly same practice over and over again would drive me crazy. Instead of enjoying relaxation that comes from yoga, I would probably be irritated by having to do 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 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 Ďclassesí as often as I like. Itís like visiting with an old friend Ė you know what to expect and itís 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 center, finding a parking spot, registering, and getting my space in class. Sometimes, I canít fit in 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 isnít a class available. I know this is case with me. Very often yoga classes in my area are offered at times that donít fit my schedule. So instead of not practicing at all, I use one of my yoga tapes and Iím 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. Itís pretty hard to practice with an instructor who lives 3,000 miles away from you. By using one of Bryanís yoga DVDs, it is like he is right there with me in room.
