    Yoga DVD Recommendations?

    I can't afford yoga classes right now, but want to start up a home practice and am looking for one or two good DVDs to work with. I prefer astanga practice, so was considering Brian Kest's Power Yoga collection or Shiva Rea's Shakti Yoga.

    I'm also thinking of getting MTV Pilates Mix for some non-yoga conditioning. I love my Jennifer Kries tape but could use a shorter option.

    So, mainly looking for yoga recs but thoughts on either appreciated.

    Cheers!

    I have the AM/PM yoga set. It's probably a little easier than what you want, but it's good. I needed something to help me relax.

    Check out the "gaiam" website if you want something that is very explanitory. I love pilates for dummy's because it explains things without you getting tired of just hearing them talk. Perhaps there is a yoga for dummy's too but I haven't seen it. I also have "crunch pilates", I only did it once but the tape seems fun.

    Do you know what kind of yoga you're interested in doing? I'd figure that out first and then get yoga specifically for that type. I have a Kundalini yoga tape that I use whenever I feel the need to have my body cleaned up, and it's great (Kundalini is more aerobic than some yogas).

    If you're really interested, you just might want to find a yoga that suits you if you're going to invest in DVDs.

    I picked up "Yoga Mind and Body" (http://tinyurl.com/5pp46)on the recommendation of a woman with whom I took a bellydance workshop (who is also a yoga practicioner/teacher). I haven't tried it yet; I do enjoy the Gaim Yoga for Weightloss video (lots of modifications). She (Rachel Brice) will have a Yoga/Bellydance DVD out in the new year (http://tinyurl.com/63n6r at Amazon or her site http://www.rachelbrice.com/merchandise.html). Check out her videos, she's amazing, http://www.rachelbrice.com/ananda.html.
