Although the Leslie Sansone: You Can Do Yoga DVD was released in 2012, I just purchased it a few weeks ago from Amazon.com and started using it this past Sunday. From the beginning, I was addicted! Having taken Yoga classes in the past (decades ago) as a means of dealing with panic and anxiety, and, more recently, on the beach with my good friend Britt, I was already familiar with the basic Yoga moves.
However, Leslie’s down-to-earth manner, clear instruction, and well-organized routines make the daily practice of Yoga simple and enjoyable. On the first track, she takes the time to demonstrate and explain each pose that will be incorporated into a free-flowing routine on the second track — setting up her viewers for success. Furthermore, she stresses the importance of breathing normally, explaining that the the first step in mastering Yoga is to learn the poses; the rest can come later. That was a relief to me, since in my past experience with real-life classes, it was difficult to combine the advanced Yoga breathing (breath of fire, etc.) with the actual moves.
For those who love her Walk at Home Fitness DVDs, she also includes a track that integrates Yoga with walking and features two of her popular walkers. If you’re seeking to expand and enhance your fitness regimen with Yoga, I highly recommend Leslie Sansone: You Can Do Yoga.
