Yoga For Inflexible People is for anyone who considers themselves inflexible. The yoga postures developed 5,000 years ago were not created for people who are already flexible, but rather to help inflexible people become more flexible. A wide range of poses are taught and modified to help both beginning and intermediate students experience the benefits of yoga. The modifications includes suggestions for the use of props, which can be either actual yoga props or items you have around the home, such as a belt or books, to assist you when you feel you need additional assistance. Of course if you do not need props, you do not have to use any.
Customized workouts allow you to progress at your own pace and the DVD contains dozens of routines which designed to carefully guide you along your journey into yoga.
When Yoga For Inflexible People was released, the Yoga Journal declared it "One of the most intelligent and useful presentations served up in a long time" and praised it as a DVD "...for all beginning students whether they are inflexible or flexible."
Yoga For Inflexible People continued to be commended as the Yoga Journal rated the DVD as one the Top Yoga DVDs ever produced. (December 2006)
Yoga isn't just for people who are already supple--it's a way to become more flexible. Yoga for Inflexible People presents modifications and props to make traditional poses accessible to people who could not otherwise perform them comfortably or correctly. You get more than 35 workouts and about four hours of instruction and practice in all. Choose a general workout, focus on an area of the body (shoulders, legs, hips, and back), or select a peaceful or energizing workout. Within each category, you have a choice of several different 15- to 75-minute series (some seated), much more variety than most videos offer. Some of the poses are beginning level; others are not. Leader Judi Rice demonstrates well, instructing by voice-over, though her expressionless face lacks warmth and personality. You'll need a yoga mat, blocks (or large books), a long strap or belt, a chair, and blankets. --Joan PriceSee all Editorial Reviews

Look at the photo on the cover. Really, that's how you start out Yoga for Inflexible People? I'd say this is a good yoga program, but they certainly don't start out with the understanding that some people cannot touch the ground with their hands while standing with straight legs, much less form a triangle with their body and do the pose shown. That's in the first session.
Ridiculous title. That's all I'm saying.
I cannot understand the critcism of this DVD; "bland background, boring, expressionless face lacking warmth and personality...." PEOPLE! This is YOGA. It's supposed to teach us to focus inwardly. Those of you who require a pretty background and "personality" need some perky wench(s) in spandex at the beach screaming, "STEP IT OUT, STEP IT OUT!"
In time, I hope to learn all the asanas (poses) so that I won't need to watch it at all, although her voice is so soothing that I'll probably always want to listen, and that's saying a lot. "Personality" can wear very thin when you have to listen to the same thing everyday for months.
This is a perfect DVD for me...one that I'll actually stick to, and I'm now ready to get rid of all those aerobic/dance/yoga tapes stacked in the basement and gathering dust.
