what's your poison?

I think this blog could use a lighthearted post, don't you? :)

I started my adventure into yoga a few weeks ago with Molly Fox's Yoga Sculpts. This simple yoga routine, which was filmed in the early 1990s, was a great introduction for me to sun salutations. She does go a little quickly, but once you've run through the DVD one time, it's much easier to keep up with her. The setting is simple, so there's nothing to distract you. I plan to go back to this DVD from time to time to shake things up.

I put Molly to the side when my three-DVD set of Better Sex Through Yoga arrived at my doorstep. Yes, yes, I know, sex sells and all that. I would be lying if I said that I didn't buy this DVD set because it claims to stretch out your "sexual core." However, a lot of the complaints on Amazon seem to be by people who tried this DVD once and judged it by its looks. Yes, there is some cheesy porn music, but instructor Jacquie Greaux isn't moaning and groaning. Yes, some of the moves look sexy, but they're also the right ones to stretch out your body properly. My legs and hips haven't felt this stretched out in a long time.

I considered trying MTV's Power Yoga, but I heard it was fairly fast-paced, so I decided not to try it. Thankfully, I joined SwapADVD a while ago, so I have access to quite a few yoga DVDs in case I feel like changing things up.

Anyone out there have a good yoga DVD recommendation?

  1. Hey Tasha,
    I recommend the Crunch Fitness Yoga DVDs. They're really great for the physical aspect of yoga. And they're fun! :-)
