Any Yoga/Pilates fans out there?

if so... i'm looking to buy a few yoga/pilates DVDs and was wondering if any of you had some good recommendations for my purchase? if not, any good websites with reviews?

i'm in need of a LOT of stretching and love my gym classes but they're not enough for me!

I bought "Yoga for Beginners." It came with a booklet that describes all the poses so you don't have to go along with the video if you don't want to. I much prefer to go to a Yoga class, though. I didn't know I was doing the poses wrong until I went there and the instructor fixed my posture for me. My friend just bought a Pilates video and she wants to teach me how to do it. I'm up for it. Besides, she's got my Angel Season 1 box set and I'm starting to want it back.

Faile & Annissa -- let me know how those Pilates videos go... and if you liked them, please pass on the names

Annissa--I agree with you on preferring classes... I just can't get enough of them, and unfortunately at my gym, I can only make it Tues-Thurs, which leaves the rest of the week empty... therefore I'd like to have a good intensive video to help me out at home.

I'm a big fan of Yoga and Pilates. I do both. I have DVD of Pilates for dummies (that's how I started) and I like this DVD. I also have Winsor Pilates (which I dowloaded from Internet for free). I think both (Pilates for Dummies and Winsor pilates) are really good. Winsor is little bit harder I would say.

I have 2 videos with Yoga.

I used to do more Pilates but lately, I was doing more Yoga. In time, Pilates get little bit boring. And also, it's the way I am - I like variety - I can't do one kind of exercise all the time.

There is Yoga almost everyday at 6:00 am on TV (I usually record it), here in Canada on Women Television. It's called Breathing Space Yoga. I love it! They explain it in details which I like.

I do more of both especially in winter time because in summer I like to stay more outdoor - I jog, walk, rollerblade, swim and play tennis.

I'm sure you gonna love Winsor Pilates! Good luck and keep on exercising!

thanks eva, i will look into getting the winsor pilates video... as for your yoga videos, would you recommend either that you have? i figure i could do a combination of both and that will keep me nice & happy on the days that my gym doesn't offer classes...

i think some television channels here have yoga as well, but anything before 10am is too early for me since i work late :p maybe one of these days i will get up early to check it out LOL.

thanks for all your great suggestions guys!

Hi Brite,

I know the Yoga is early. What I do (if I'm lazy) I record it on a video tape and do the exercises later. Can you see women network TV in USA? I thought it was US channel. Let me know if you have this channel.

I'm at work right now, but when I get home I will take a look at the Yoga tapes I have. I will let you know tonight.

well, i finally got my pilates dvd and was attempting to try it, when i discovered it's very hard to lay on the floor and exercise with cats dive-bombing your stomach. i got through about 2 exercises when i nearly got the wind knocked out of me twice. i guess i'll have to wait till they calm down and take a nap!

I know how it is. I have the same problem at home. They jump on my head, pull my hear, attack my pants....
