This DVD is a godsend. Centered around a Kripalu yoga practice, Abby Lentz and her students provide an excellent, inviting work out that makes yoga accessible to everyone. Abby places safety and comfort above all else and she knows the unique concerns that face people of size and those living with (or just wanting to avoid) injury. Modifications are demonstrated among the class members, and the class is truly made up of a variety of people of all ages and sizes who each bring different challenges to the mat. (There is a neat interview section where you can learn more about the class members.)
The poses can be relaxing or challenging depending on how you use them, and Abby talks you through each, explaining not only what she is doing, but the small details that are often overlooked in group exercise which make you feel like it is a one-on-one session with her. Each move is achievable, regardless of your size, Abby goes beyond the call of duty to bring yoga to every person. Both Abby and the class members make you feel that you can enjoy the benefits of yoga NOW, regardless of your size.Read more ›
as other reviewers recommended, i watched it through once before attempting and am glad i did. it was good to be able to pay attention to the moves and how each different person did the. abby, the class leader, is probably about the same size i am, but a bit shorter. there were more normal sized people in the class who did the more advanced poses, a larger girl who did the moves with some modifications, and some others who were shown doing modified poses. by watching it through once i was able to see the different modifications. the first time i did the routine, it was NOT easy but i felt the stretch right away. i also felt relaxed and kind of delicious - pushing a bit further every couple of days and working muscles that i've never worked before really feels good.
i am not doing this for weight loss, although there are some calories burned for certain. i was looking for something low-impact to do instead of my recumbent bike that would burn a few calories and make me feel better about myself. and i do - i kind of feel more confident and a bit healthier all around. i follow a sort-of low fat, restricted calorie diet and have also incorporated more fruits and veg into my diet, so this was part of a lifestyle change.Read more ›
