Yoga Zone's Premiere DVD Collection (4-DVD Set). Trying to learn yoga from a videotape could try the patience of a bona fide yogi. How do you when your form is correct and when you're risking injury? What if you can't do that downward-facing dog with straight legs? This beginner's boxed set solves the first problem through detailed and careful explanation of the asanas, then sidesteps the second by having two different instructors demonstrate both advanced and beginning version of each pose. Soft-spoken Alan Finger begins each of the programs with proper breathing technique. He then guides students through a clear and logical sequence of poses emphasizing correct placement. The Introduction to Yoga program covers most of the basic asanas used elsewhere in the series, including the potted-palm series, cat, dog, mountain, and triangle, while subsequent tapes move on to more advanced variations on these fundamental yoga building blocks. The Conditioning and Stress Release program systematically relaxes every muscle in the body, and the more vigorous Flexibility and Tone uses standing exercises like sun salutations to build heat in the system and promote flexibility. Finally, the two sessions included on the Meditation tape provide a welcome reminder that yoga is about much more than just working out. This is the boxed set to buy if you're looking for a nuanced understanding of how yoga works rather than just sweat-drenched intensity.
