Lilias: Flowing Postures Series [Import]
This boxed set of flowing yoga postures for beginners includes four 35-minute yoga videos that are also sold separately: Lilias: Arms & Abs, Lilias: Cardio Challenge, Lilias: Serenity Now, and Lilias: Legs & Buns. You can alternate or combine the workouts, mixing and matching according to your goals or how you feel on a particular day.
Known simply as Lilias, Folan introduced yoga to millions of television viewers 30 years ago. Though the slim, supple body has become middle-aged and the familiar, long braid has been replaced with short curls, her gentle, patient, and clear instruction remains the same, and she is even more inspiring. Her style is inviting because she doesn't show off her flexibility or demand that you get into impossible postures. She starts where you are, explaining how to get into a posture (modified is fine), how to tell if you're doing it right, what your body should feel and look like as you do it, and what's happening in your body. Whether you first experienced yoga decades ago with Lilias or you're discovering it now, she is warm and welcoming, and her instructions are exceptionally clear and simple. --Joan Price

"serenity now" features slow, rhythmical breathing with relaxing postures that will help you to unwind and quiet that inner chatter. Come on you know you think too much . This will help you get centered while in the background beautiful, soothing music is playing.
As you gain strength and balance move on to the last video a wonderful cardio workout. Lilias is my favorite instructor . I first discovered her in the seventies on PBS. I think if not mistaken. She had a show either really late at night or really early in the morning. Which can be one and the same I suppose.
I wasn't interested in a yoga video which focused heavily on Middle Eastern meditational practices, which is why I chose this set. It is a great exercise video for the body as well as great stress relief for the mind.

I never thought I'd be able to do yoga because of an old back injury. Most yoga videos have too much twisting and strain for beginners or the skittish folks like me. Read morePublished on April 21 2002 by Kenneth Simon
