Yoga For Beginners

Yoga For Beginners

Yoga For Beginners

From the Editors of Body + Soul Magazine comes a new line of DVDs designed to excite, inform, inspire and encourage your quest toward a balanced and healthy whole life.

YOGA FOR BEGINNERS is the perfect way to be introduced to Yoga and it helps you to explore and experience the numerous benefits of yoga. There are 8 routines to help build strength, increase flexibility, improve your health and vitality and transform how you look and feel.

Routines are led by renowned instructor Barbara Benagh who expertly leads you through tailored workouts ranging from 10 to 60 minutes. YOGA FOR BEGINNERS was filmed on location at one of the most beautiful, tranquil beaches in the world, Half-Moon Bay, Antigua, which adds to the overall experience of tranquility.

DVD HIGHLIGHTS:

-8 Customized, Targeted Routines

-Exclusive Interview with the Instructor

-Routines from 10 – 60 Minutes

-Includes articles from Body + Soul magazine Yoga instructor Barbara Benagh has practiced and taught yoga for nearly 35 years. She discovered yoga while living in England and began teaching there. She moved to Boston and opened The Yoga Studio on Beacon Hill in 1980.

In addition to her local classes Barbara teaches yoga seminars throughout the US and internationally. She is a regular contributor of articles to Yoga Journal magazine. She has several audio CDs of live classes available as well as DVDs, the latest being Yoga for Beginners released by Body + Soul magazine, and Yoga for Stress Relief that includes a discussion on meditation from the Dalai Lama.

Barbara was kind enough to answer some questions from Amazon.com about this unique line of yoga DVDs.


How are these DVDs different from other yoga DVDs?

I was drawn to working with Bodywisdommedia because they produce DVDs they are interactive. Rather than a “one size fits all” single routine that is typical of most products, these DVDs offer choice, allowing the user to customize and change their yoga practice to suit their needs. No two persons are the same so the ability to change your practice – easing shoulder tension one day and an invigorating morning wake up the next – come as close as possible to allowing you to address your individual needs at home. Not only do people have different physical needs, but they have different time constraints as well. If you have only 20 minutes, there is a practice for you but there are longer practices as well (some as long as 90 minutes) that address the total body/mind connection. The sheer number of yoga sequences offered on each of these DVDs is a first. They are incredibly comprehensive.

How were you able to get the Dalai Lama involved?

This project dovetailed perfectly with the Dalai Lama’s message that modern stress is one of the greatest obstacles to our mental happiness and physical wellbeing. Because we are long-time sincere practitioners, having a 30-minute lecture of the Dalai Lama teaching how to meditate on the Yoga for Stress Relief DVD was a perfect fit. Bodywisdommedia also has a broader relationship with the Office of Tibet and are releasing historic lectures with “A Path to Happiness” being the first one.

How will potential buyers of these DVDs know which one is right for them?

The titles are very indicative of what appears on the DVD and therefore a good guide. I really enjoyed making Yoga for Stress Relief because it is incredibly relevant. We strove to make the sequences accessible to as many people as possible, whether they are a beginner or long time practitioner. Yoga for Beginners is a great, non-threatening place to get started and includes lots of sound technique developed over my 30 years as a yoga teacher. Power Yoga for Every Body is a bit more challenging taking you from the beginning level and gradually progressing to much more demanding routines.

Heal your Mind and Soul with Namaste Yoga


Namaste Yoga is a quite famous and beneficial yoga that helps people to be acquainted with mutual and shared value with the rest of their class. This form of yoga or exercise fills the heart of people with a feeling of unity.  Namaste is a Sanskrit word and the meaning of Namaste Yoga is ‘bow to the God inside you’. This word is associated with spirituality. The gesture of this yoga symbolizes that we are within the reach of a divine spark that we all have.

It is very simple form of yoga that is done by putting both your hands close to your heart. In this yoga, you need to point up the index fingers and the fold the rest fingers of your hands. Afterward, close your eyes and bow your head. Namaste Yoga is not exactly prayer, but it is a gentle way to calm down your soul and heart. This way you can focus on what you like the most. It is recommended that one must think on the forthcoming schedule of exercise.

There are no certain timings to practice Namaste Yoga. You can do it whenever you have sufficient time. One can join yoga classes or can start doing it in his or her own house. Tension and stress are some common problems of today’s lifestyle which can be solved with this form of yoga. You can release all the stress of your mind and can concentrate on your work if you do it on a regular basis. Most yoga experts recommend Namaste yoga when one starts his/her workout. If you follow all the instructions of your yoga instructor, you can get lots of benefits.
