Practical Power Of Yoga
with Rodney Yee & Colleen Saidman

Practical Power of Yoga will dispel the myth I can t do yoga everyone can do yoga! Simple poses, sitting in a chair or on a mat, are accessible to everyone.

INSPIRE a LIFE TRANSFORMATION
Rodney Yee, along with his wife Colleen, will guide you through simple yoga exercises along this inward journey, encouraging you to live the life of your fingerprint, as you transform every aspect of your life.

HEADHEARTHANDS
Life is this joyful, wonderful experience, Rodney Yee reminds us, Yoga helps you to hone your attention, to pull your mind back into your body. The heart has a thousand times more energy than the brain. The hands have a thousand times more energy than the heart.

Learn how you can truly transform the way you think about yourself. We all come to yoga for different reasons flexibility, strength, stress reduction, weight loss, a better sex life, inner peace, self-confidence. Whatever it is, you ll come away with so much more.
The simplicity of this consciousness in the here and now, in this quiet inward turning, will allow you to relax, restore, and renew your self.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding before doing January 13, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A lot of people who want to start doing yoga are not familiar with this ancient art. This video can give a rare insight to what it entails. It can clear misconceptions and wrong advice. An example is in how to correctly do a back bend, from your upper chest and not the waist. This is not a video of a yoga session but an eye opener. Its important to know what one is getting into.

The Yoga DVD was very helpful and easy to follow and had great information for beginners. It was great that they showed you how to do yoga even if you are sitting or laying down. Very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A PBS Yoga lecture/demonstration program October 6, 2009
Format:DVD
UpTooLateReadingBook's 1/29/09, Christa Debarros 1/13/09 & Gitma's 1/12/09 reviews are great. This is a mostly lecture, but part teaching/demonstration of yoga poses. The reasons why people do it, the misconceptions, the mind/body union, the doing less is more, the giving yourself permission to relax will help everyone (it's not a sin), to do yoga to wake up instead of coffee, to prevent/heal backaches & even prostate issues & more.
There are some stories, but mostly they stick to the why's & basic teaching. It's an hour with a 20 min bonus of more poses.
They have the audience participate either using the floor/mats or sitting in a chair doing mountain, sun salutations, cobbler's, cobra, triangle, half moon, camel and relaxation or savasana and meditation.
Normally I get bored very easily, but because Rodney Yee & Colleen Saidman practice being in the now with energy, I wasn't at all, and the program moved at nice fast pace, and was over before I knew it.
This is for people who never tried yoga, or beginners for the most part, but even with the hundred? of yoga dvds I've bought/rented in the past 6 years, and a couple of yoga classes I took, I did learn to put more emphasis in using the upper back in my back bends as well as making sure the legs stay straight & not allow my hips to pull forward to give a fake feeling I'm bending more which puts pressure on the lower back. Also, to always ground with the feet, even in seated poses.
I only wish they spent longer in the teaching of each pose, but that's because I'm so detailed oriented, and probably wished this was three hours long.

I think that this is an important DVD to watch. It definitely gives you a wonderful overview of Rodney Yee's mindset and how he approaches yoga, both physically and mentally. Rodney and his wife Colleen are great to watch together (she seems to make him very humble and light, which is sweet). It really helped me to see yoga as so much more beautiful and enjoyable and way less scary. If you are a beginner I recommend watching this and if you are an advanced student it is a nice reminder of all that yoga has to offer besides the physical benefits.

I watched it and followed the instructions, even though I am not at the beginner level. It's actually not bad as an introduction to yoga.

Will you watch it more than a couple of times? Some will probably find that it is a very non-threatening approach to exercise which finally gets them moving. Most of us will probably enjoy watching it and learning from it once and then move on to something that moves faster.

It's funny that I say something that moves faster when I'm always looking for slow-moving yoga practice, but this one moves a little slower than you'll want as a regular routine. It's great for a starter though.
