Are Yoga DVDs Worth Your Money?
While we all recognize the fact that the best way to learn yoga for beginners is by attending yoga classes, more and more people these days prefer yoga DVDs and practice in their homes.
If you have been contemplating on investing in yoga DVDs, it would be worthwhile to look into its viability and explore the question, “Is it good enough to replace yoga classes?”
Attending live yoga classes provides an awesome experience for beginners. As a novice, you will need the physical presence of an instructor to explain the basics, provide guidelines, ensure safety and answer any questions that you may have.
There is also the fact that attending yoga classes provides you a supportive community of yoga students who also share with you the common interest for yoga.
However, over the course of your yoga practice, it is also necessary that you practice on your own. It is for this reason that many people have recognized the importance of buying yoga DVDs, which have been proven to be incredibly helpful in fortifying one’s yoga practice.
Practice Yoga From Home
With yoga DVDs, yoga is brought to you, allowing you to practice yoga from the comforts of your home. A lot of people don’t have ready access to regular yoga classes, while others find it inconvenient to travel to and fro. DVDs provide you the convenience of committing to a regular yoga session even with a hectic schedule.
Among the famous yoga instructors with yoga DVDs include Rodney Yee, Shiva Rea and Gurmukh. Take advantage of their expertise!
As A Supplement To Your Classes
As I have mentioned in the past, yoga is a personal journey. You need not fully rely on your classes and instructors to advance your practice. Since most people attend yoga classes once a week, it is barely enough especially if you want to take your practice to a deeper level. So if you don’t have the time or the financial resources to attend yoga classes on a daily basis and you want to go beyond the sun salutation, yoga DVDs are the next best thing.
Practice Is Programmed
A lot of people find themselves struggling how to take their practice to the next level, not quite sure what to do on the mat when left on their own. With a yoga DVD, this pressure is eliminated so you can simply focus on following the instructor on the screen. There are so many DVD programs out there that offer variety for yoga students, providing support through different levels. Now you can readily access and explore the different styles of yoga with just a simple push of a button.
But whether you plan to practice from home or join a yoga class, or both, it is important to make sure to always keep an open mind. To fortify your practice, read the post I’ve written on the 3 life-changing habits to fortify your yoga practice.
