Description

  • Factory sealed DVD
  • Yoga instructor Barbara Benagh has practiced and taught yoga for nearly 35 years. She discovered yoga while living in
    England and began teaching there. She moved to Boston and opened The Yoga Studio on Beacon Hill in 1980.

    In addition to her local classes Barbara teaches yoga seminars throughout the US and internationally. She is a regular
    contributor of articles to Yoga Journal magazine. She has several audio CDs of live classes available as well as DVDs,
    the latest being Yoga for Beginners released by Body + Soul magazine, and Yoga for Stress Relief that includes a
    discussion on meditation from the Dalai Lama.

    Barbara was kind enough to answer some questions from Amazon.com about this unique line of yoga DVDs.

    How are these DVDs different from other yoga DVDs? I was drawn to working with Bodywisdommedia because they produce
    DVDs they are interactive. Rather than a "one size fits all" single routine that is typical of most products, these DVDs
    offer choice, allowing the user to customize and change their yoga practice to suit their needs. No two persons are the
    same so the ability to change your practice - easing shoulder tension one day and an invigorating morning wake up the
    next - come as close as possible to allowing you to address your individual needs at home. Not only do people have
    different physical needs, but they have different time constraints as well. If you have only 20 minutes, there is a
    practice for you but there are longer practices as well (some as long as 90 minutes) that address the total body/mind
    connection. The sheer number of yoga sequences offered on each of these DVDs is a first. They are incredibly
    comprehensive.

    How were you able to get the Dalai Lama involved?

    This project dovetailed perfectly with the Dalai Lama's message that modern stress is one of the greatest obstacles to
    our mental happiness and physical wellbeing. Because we are long-time sincere practitioners, having a 30-minute lecture
    of the Dalai Lama teaching how to meditate on the Yoga for Stress Relief DVD was a perfect fit. Bodywisdommedia also has
    a broader relationship with the Office of Tibet and are releasing historic lectures with "A Path to Happiness" being
    the first one.

    How will potential buyers of these DVDs know which one is right for them?

    The titles are very indicative of what appears on the DVD and therefore a good guide. I really enjoyed making Yoga for
    Stress Relief because it is incredibly relevant. We strove to make the sequences accessible to as many people as
    possible, whether they are a beginner or long time practitioner. Yoga for Beginners is a great, non-threatening place to
    get started and includes lots of sound technique developed over my 30 years as a yoga teacher. Power Yoga for Every Body
    is a bit more challenging taking you from the beginning level and gradually progressing to much more demanding routines.
