I’ve had Tara Stiles latest DVD release–This Is Yoga– for probably a little over a month and a half now, and I have yet to do every practice. That’s because this new four-DVD series ($20, amazon.com) has so many flows that I just haven’t been able to get to them all.
I will even admit that one of the DVDs still has its wrapping. That isn’t to say I haven’t been doing these flows though. I have…and I love them. Routines run from five to 60 minutes and vary in focus like strength, balance, relaxation and flexibility. She has flows to do in the AM and ones that are specifically designed to wind you down in the PM.
I am no beginner yogi, but some of the advance positions Tara moves into remind me of how far I still have to go. And her “Pose Library” is going to help get me there. Her instructions are clear, not hippie-dippie and might just be the solution to my desire to get into a handstand (without the wall helping).
Tara’s effortless yoga style easily rubs off on you and her relaxing flows are probably the only time my brain shuts off or at least lulls to a hum.
For anyone who enjoys home yoga, but needs flows that are a little more challenging I would highly recommend this series.
