  • I'm cheap....

    ...and therefore I don't want to pay to join a yoga class. I already have a gym membership and that's kind of as much as I'm willing to fork out every month. My issue is that my gym, while they do offer yoga classes, they offer them at kind of inopportune times for me.

    SO, I've decided that I should start doing yoga/pilates/something else fun at home with a DVD. I've got the space, but I'd like some advice on which DVD's to invest in. Anybody have any favourites?

    The P90X power yoga disc is freakin' amazing if you ask me. Of all the discs I enjoyed this one the most.
    Self-realization. I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

      Is it possible to just get the yoga disc of P90X, or do you have to buy the whole setup?

        If you have Netflix or other on-demand service through cable TV, you can try stuff out w/o first buying it. Our public library also has a wide variety of workout dvd's, including yoga.

          I'm not much of a yogi...though I have purchased a few DVDs over the years. My favorite is Bryan Kest's Power Yoga. What I like about it is it gets right to it. No wasted time sitting and breathing. The beginner class kicks my butt.

            Tony Horton has another disc that's shorter than the P90x Yoga X DVD. I think it's called Fountain of Youth Yoga.

            Was not a huge fan of Yoga X since I had already done yoga. He's got a good pace, but it's too much talking for my taste, and it's a 90-MINUTE SESSION.

            Bryan Kest is good. People have mixed feelings about Rodney Yee's videos on Gaiam but I have a few and use them. (I actually ran into Rodney in the Jet Blue terminal at JFK recently!)

              yogadownload.com, you can download 20 minute podcasts for free and pay for longer ones(either a pay by use or get a subscription), also yogatoday.com has podcasts(some free/some paid)

                I echo the on-demand tv suggestion - I have at least 10 free yoga work outs on there that are not bad at all.

                    I'll fourth the Netflix idea.

                    I was able to watch a little bit of some that I really hated, and then found Crunch Candlight Yoga which worked for me. I can access it on my TV (through Roku) or on my laptop, so it's highly portable.

                      Shiva Rae yoga shakti... its an awesome dvd. My favorite thing about that is the ability to create your own workout by taking sections.

                        Wow, lot's of ideas. I really like Yoga Vibes online. I have a friend who actually has a class on the site. Pretty cool in that you have sooooo many choices. Check it out.

                            I found the P90x yoga to be challenging, although, flexibility is something I really need to work on more. I like it but it is very long. I sometimes just do the the first 45-60 minutes of it.

                            I have seen a lot of the P90x discs for sale seperately on ebay. You could probably find it there.

                              Ohhhh EBay. I forgot about that little gem.

                              On a completely unrelated note, there's an older fellow that scoots his electric wheelchair around my work neighbourhood most days and I've taken to calling him 'Wheely Dan'. So, when I saw 'Squeally Dan', it made me lol.
