The Yoga that I teach is based on the Ashtanga Primary Series. That said, our classes are a tempered version of this type of Yoga. A full Ashtanga practice is a challenging, set series of postures. It can be practiced by anyone but bear in mind that if you have injuries or are recovering from an illness you should seek out a gentler practice to begin with!
If you are going to go the Ashtanga route, there are only two names that I have for you:
- Richard Freeman
- David Swenson
You can find DVDs by them both on the online store at Ashtanga.com. Remember you are looking for a DVD of the Primary Series.
Other Online Resources
With the proliferation of new media, there are tonnes of online resources for yoga - if you happen to be in a place where you can access them!!
Here are a few I have heard good reviews about:
- Yoga Today - Every week, Yoga Today delivers a free class via the internet. They also have subscription options where you can buy classes one-by-one for about $3, or buy a membership to get unlimited access to classes.
- YogaGlo - YogaGlo charges an $18 monthly fee, and in return you get unlimited access to video classes.
