A true beginners yoga dvd

Yoga For Beginners: Poses for Strength, Flexibility and Relaxation with Kanta Barrios is one hour, fourteen minutes and thirty seconds and was released on DVD on April 2, 2010. The DVD is broken down into four parts: Warm-Up Sequence, Standing Poses, Sitting Poses and Restorative Yoga. You will need a yoga mat, pillow or blanket, belt or towel and a stuffed duffle bag or something similar. It uses most of the basic moves like downward dog, triangle, mountain pose, tree pose and a few more. There are no complex moves and no loud background noise. The video moves at a nice slow pace, maybe too slow for the advance people, and the instructor is easy to follow along. You will not have to constantly raise you head up or turn around. There are only one or two moves that some beginners might have a problem with, but after a month doing this DVD you have no problem. Unlike other yoga videos I have owned in the past, this is a true beginners one. Yoga For Beginners: Poses for Strength, Flexibility and Relaxation with Kanta Barrios gets an AAAAA+++++. Warm-Up Sequence (12:37) Standing Poses (18:50) Sitting Poses (18:30) Restorative Yoga (14:33)

I am a true beginner, 100% new to yoga, wanting to give it a try to see if it’s for me. I read several reviews for several video’s and wish I would have tried this one first. Although, it’s only my 2nd video, and 2nd day of doing yoga, it’s EXACTLY what I was looking for. Ms. Barrios moves at a beginners pace, allowing you to set up for each pose correctly, explaining every move, and allowing you to feel the true effects of each pose. I only did the first 35 min’s (warm-up and 1st routine), because I am wanting to take it slow. I’m not completely out of shape, but I am physically weak and not that flexible (yet!). I feel this is challenging enough for a beginner to feel like you won’t just rush thru it and be scrambling to find the next video. I find that I will be coming back to this for weeks if not months ~ possibly being the only video I need. I am adding it to my exercise routine ~ I do cardio 3 times a week, and was hoping to add a yoga routine 2-3 times a week. As previous reviewers have stated, the setting is real and the instructor is real. She’s not a size zero with make up and hair perfectly done. The setting is peaceful and simple.

Got This Lazy College Student Liking Exercise For The First Time

I’m going to start out this review admitting I am very unfit for a 21 year old. About the only exercise I get/got is walk to and from class and a daily fifteen 30 min walk every other day (playing Pokemon go so plenty of stops and rests) And due to extreme social anxiety and just generally not liking being with others when doing any fitness activity I can’t (won’t) attend a class/group session. I was very pleased with the almost immediate results. I made it through the first section and was sweating profusely and had to stop due to my balance failing me early in the second sequence. I was very pleased that it started out simply but with enough challenge to break a sweat. I stop to take a small cool down after that to write this review. I do wish they gave a timer for each pose though because I have to mute my sound because the walls in my dorm a very thin. I am usually going to be doing this at night and early morning when quiet hours are. I have prime so I didn’t have to pay for this title but if I was paying I would possibly look into something a bit cheaper if you are on a tight budget.

I took yoga lessons for 7 years 4 years ago. I did Yoga For Beginners Poses w Kanta Barrios yesterday and I found it thorough but challenging.

bare bones, but excellent

As others have noted, this is a simple, low-budget production. It doesn’t feature fancy or expensive outfits, settings, or props. Instead, a skilled teacher models poses on a wooden platform in front of a body of calm water. While the setting isn’t remarkable or gimmicky, the audio is just fine, the instructions clear, and the music unobtrusive. More importantly, the warm-up and three yoga routines are excellently timed and clearly explained and demonstrated by Ms. Barrios. Each pose is held for an adequate period and, while *I* enjoy the time set aside for relaxation/meditation between each segment, it’s easy enough to fast-forward if that’s not your jam. This isn’t a demanding “workout,” necessarily — but if, like me, you are physically weak and fairly inflexible, it IS a wonderful introduction to yoga practice. I’ve tried multiple classes and videos before, but always felt like I was just going through the motions, and nothing ever stuck. After one week doing Yoga for Beginners each day, my balance, strength and flexibility are already improving. I look forward to it when I wake up in the morning. And, frankly, I’m also a more relaxed and happy person. It’s also not just for beginners.

Excellent for this stiff and inflexible body

I am the most inflexible person out there. This has always stopped me from enjoying a group yoga class. I keep trying and get frustrated because I cannot get into 3/4 of the poses and I’ve never found an instructor who can help me. So, after years of not doing any yoga and getting older and feeling more and more stiff by the day, I decided to give this beginners video a try. I just did the first 30 minutes and I loved it. The instructions were clear and she took time with each pose so I felt like I could really do it correctly before moving onto another pose. I ended up feeling really stretched out and calm. (Now, if I can just train my dog to not come and paw at me or lick me while I’m in child’s pose on the mat, that would be incredible)

Great video to start with for first timers!

For those brand new to Yoga, never done it before, this video is a good place to start. The poses are simple and basic. Since I know next to nothing about all the different poses, I can’t really comment on what poses should have been in this video, etc. Barrios explains every move and how to position the different parts of your body in a very easy manner that any first time yoga beginner can understand. I’ll admit though, there were some poses I couldn’t even do myself, because my legs are so stiff, still can’t touch my toes! Embarrassing. Yet I’m hoping the more yoga I do, the more flexible my body will become. The only other thing I’ll add about this video, is there are a few moves that require a yoga belt and bolster. I made do with a regular belt and a pillow, but it wasn’t the same. I plan to buy those items soon.

I love all of her yoga videos

I love all of her yoga videos. I think I’ve tried all of them. I had never done yoga before and started with her beginner poses. I told my daughter to try it and my daughter’s reply was “I never had an instructor tell me I’m beautiful.” Kanta is so nice and polite, she even asks you to “please” do certain things After doing workouts by Jillian Michaels, this was refreshing. I am older (56) and was looking for an easier way to stay in shape besides lifting weights and I found it in yoga. It has also given me peace and I look forward to doing it everyday. I’ve tried other beginner workouts where the instructor does moves that no beginner could ever do but Kanta doesn’t do that. She does the move as she is instructing it to be done, even though you know she could do more. I try to do some form of yoga everyday and almost always pick one of Kanta’s workouts.
