Yoga Fundamentals DVD
Heal injuries, make progress, and master your practice
Let’s face it: injuries are debilitating both physically and emotionally.
The frustration of dealing with pain adds to that of not being able to do the things that you love, whether it is about going to the gym or everyday activities. And this includes attending your yoga classes.
How do I know? I was in exactly the same place, nearly giving up hope, and let surgeons chop my neck. Pain wasn’t just paralyzing for my body, it nearly paralyzed my ability to think. Getting out of that state felt like being given new life plus a set of wings for bonus! What I learn from my recovery process has been the seed for the Yoga Fundamentals program. This program gives you a strong foundation for an injury-free yoga practice.

The guidance is very detailed and clear. The program is slow paced, to make the poses and transitions easy to comprehend and follow. SG, Amazon review
What makes this program unique is the fact that you get several variations for each potentially problematic pose. These variations apply to common injuries of the back, neck, knees, hips, and shoulders.
