scouring the web for the most appealing beginners ashtanga yoga dvd, i found nicki doane. her moves were so gracious, it felt like she was in so much peace with herself and the world around and i wanted it.
the actual video is good for a complete beginner as it covers sun salutations and the standing sequence. not to be discouraged with her flexibility, you are of course invited to do as much as you can but be with your practice fully awake and engaging.
i was actually listening to her interview on the dvd and there were certain things she talked about that i did not quite register first time around watching it but now they made sense.
the dvd is good – by all means. it is a teaser and it will set you off on your journey. you will, however, want more very soon. i guess it’s that beginners hunger i read so much about.
