introduction to yoga

As an introduction to yoga, i found yoga for beginners exceptional.

The perfect introduction to yoga.

Your work is brilliant and none more so than this quaint introduction to Yoga.

It is worthwhile taking The perfect remedy for anyone who is rekindling the exercise world hahahah :-) This was a gentle introduction to yoga and i like that it spent time on the basics without assuming that everyone knows the glosary of yoga & meditation I also liked the the background info on yoga & spirituality as well as nutrition and stuff My fav part was the meditation (this is something ive never tried before but i am going to try and do regulalry as i was surprised as to how easy i was able to get into it Included was more than I expected and some interesting material not just yoga but mediatation.

so its a 5 star from a happy me :-) very well presented Good allrounder starter / introduction to yoga :-) Really useful for beginners starting out It's great - really informative and interesting.

sun salutation

very interesting approach of yoga as the sun salutation 3 classes show .Anyway your draws and explaination are accurate but some pictures for some asanas might be great if you can.So i like the phylosophy of your yoga course!Good job...

There are 3 different sun salutation sequences.

I've never been good at lunges, so I feel frustration when approaching a sun salutation.

I would like to see a live person actually perform a sun salutation during the presented "yoga classes."

Thanks Would recommend for beginners SUN SALUTATION WERE VERY INTERESTING Unique style of tutoring that really works well Lurve the corpse pose !!!

sun salutations

But, what really makes it shine for beginners, is the classes that build us up from using the simple corpse pose to sun salutations to various classes that gradually incorporate more advanced postures.

Sun Salutations are explained in section 5.

Before we begin the Sun Salutations, we are introduced to the 14 poses that will be used in each.

Sun Salutations all have a continuous flow to them and an almost symmetrical balance of poses from beginning to end, so that the pose you begin with is the pose you end with.

Especially, the sun salutations.

the sun salutations alone are incredible and provide details of each and every pose so you can practice them before you put them altogether This was such a great intro to yoga practice!

Thank you Libby I am so grateful to you A bit of everything inc meditation and sun salutations and some yoga movements that I hadn't known about which I liked!!!

I was hoping for a better representation of the poses and sun salutations.

Enjoyed sun salutations and other classes as well.

EXATCLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR [ Simple and just what I wanted it to be too hard to build any flow of movement TONS OF GREAT LECTURES EVEN COVERED SUN SALUTATIONS Easy and no hidden agenda!

Sun salutations were good to learn I enjoyed a great deal Well desserved of a five star rating brilliant -simply presented without being confusing Good guide to yoga essentials.

rather than

Lucy It would have been much easier to understand the yoga poses if there had been video or photos of a person in the position rather than a black silhouette image.

It would have also helped to have at least one full class in which I could perform the full number of repetitions and breaths of the class (rather than have the audio say, "do this for 2-3 times").

It was good to see the care you took over producing this course and the importance of executing movements correctly rather than hurrying through.

Lot of attention on correct execution rather than being super fit which is comforting as i haven't exercised in 20 years I enjoyed this course a lot being that I am very interested in yoga.

This course 'yoga for beginner', is gentle and has emphasis on doing the movements correctly rather than inflicting pain on yourself.

What I found was interesting because the movements and the various classes are explained via a slideshow movie (with explanations and illustrations), rather than an actual person like in a keep fit DVD,.

It also meant that whilst doing the various yoga poses, I gave more focus on doing them correctly rather than keeping up with someone else's pace (and resisting being critical of myself because I'm comparing myself to the instructor).

These classes are lovely and gentle and can do them whenever I want rather than having to travel two and half miles to the leisure center and without spending £9 everytime!

NOTHING TOO DIFFICULT OR FRIGHTENING IN THE WAY OF POSES REALLY ENJOYING THE DELIVERY Rather than a person demonstrating the various poses in videos, it is just a sequence of still shadow pictures.

corpse pose

After a session, we relax the body by using the corpse pose.

While in the corpse pose, we sequentially move through our body, tensing a body part then releasing that tension.

ABSOLUTEY EXCELNT really simple and i loved it Cool and gentle The corpse pose is so easy Im gonna love this one haha :-) Information is very clear and has excellent details.

look at

Since completing the course I have decided to look at teaching myself so all I can now do is to thank Libby for the incite fullness of the course content to put me onto another learning path.

Thanks for an insightful journey into not just yoga but other aspects like meditation and such This is a tremendous look at yoga through a beginners perspective.

You would be better off buying a book to look at still images.
