On the yoga front option #2 was DVDs. After asking a few friends, surfing online and high praise from the Namaste Knitters at Ravelry I went with Shiva Rea's DVDs. I would have preferred to get back into yoga with a trained coach to watch our form, but this is a great second option.
We started with Flow Yoga for Beginners. On the back jacket of the DVD it states: "She begins with seated meditations that teaches you how to link breath with movement. Three more segments introduce her flowing approach to classic poses. Transitions from pose to pose are graceful and easy. You may not have Shiva's flexibility (yet), but you can follow her lead in ways that work for you. Feel yourself becoming stronger and more supple. Sense your new energy and find the fluidity that has always been yours."
We liked Shiva so much that we have now added Creative Core Abs, Core + Lower Body and Core + Upper Body to my little yoga library. They're very good, reasonably priced and in this winter weather it's nice to stay home and benefit from Shiva's great teachings.
If you're at all interested in starting yoga, this is a great way to give it a try. Namaste.
On the weather front the groundhog saw his shadow so looks like another 6 weeks of winter. We expect 6 weeks or more of winter around here whether he sees his shadow or not anyway. lol Be well everyone!
