Spring is a great time for yoga! I find that a nice practice seems to clear my head, rev-up my circulation and make me feel fresh. Long term, it enhances my balance, coordination, flexibility and core strength. All of that is wonderful when preparing for whatever activities are waiting for you this Summer!
I find I benefit more from yoga the more I practice. The thing is, I am not likely to visit a studio for an extended class more than maybe once a week. I find having access to shorter practices at home result in more practice as I can enjoy a short session for my warm up or to unwind in the evening.
This is where yoga workout DVDs and online streaming classes can help. I recently discovered The Yoga Collective and think it is a wonderful source for refreshing, short yoga practices I can enjoy at home!
I received a complimentary subscription to The Yoga Collective and they have graciously offered to sponsor a giveaway! To enter, see details following my review of The Yoga Collective.
My Experience Practicing With The Yoga Collective:
I tried a couple of the practices and a pose instruction segment. I actually did Crow pose for the first time! Just for a second.
I had a headache the first time I followed the Cross Train 30 led by Travis Eliot. About 15 minutes into the 30 minute practice my headache was gone! I also felt like I had a thorough workout and actually had mildly sore muscles the following day.
I like that The Yoga Collective features classes from a variety of excellent instructors and styles of yoga. The studio is well-lit and most of the movements were clearly visible (occasionally they would do a facial close-up where a full-length shot would be more useful). All and all, I am impressed with the quality of these online classes.
