Posts Tagged ‘online yoga’

Recently I was looking for a new yoga class. I visited a local yoga place, hoping to get a gentle, basic hatha yoga class. The class was okay, but the teacher spent more time talking than she did having us relax and rest in the poses. Which was not actually relaxing.  So I went online and found a really great basic class on Amazon! After an hour going through the poses on a yoga mat in front of my very own television, I decided the video was worth sharing, for those of you that want to do yoga on your own in the comfort and warmth of your own home. many yoga classes are great in person, but I was happy to find this video for days that it is to cold to leave the house, or when you want a yoga class but your favorite teacher is not teaching that night!

Yoga For Beginners: Poses for Strength, Flexibility and Relaxation is a basic yoga  class taught by Kanta Barrios, a Spanish yoga teacher. The class is taught by the ocean on a wooden pier. Barrios teaches in English, and when she has you hold each pose or she transitions between poses, the video shifts to pictures and sounds of ocean waves. Very relaxing and calming! One thing I like about this video is that she does not have you hold the poses for very long, so it is easier for those new to yoga to participate. Barrios only speaks about the poses and relaxation, she does not intersperse her class with ideas about her view of the world. It’s just pure yoga and it is very calming!

Barrios has other yoga videos on Amazon and once you master the first Beginning yoga class, you may want to check out her Yoga for Beginners: From Basics to Expansion class. Both classes are free with Amazon Prime, but are available on DVD from her website as well here.
